What constitutes actionable health data to drive clinical interventions on chronically-ill patients in the home setting? How a delicate balance of patient experience and real-world data creates unlimited medical research possibilities.
Health care payors cite lower costs, equivalent or improved outcomes, and greater patient satisfaction as drivers of the shift in care delivery to the home environment. However, the technological expansion into the home is falling behind the care service expansion. Medtech companies in the patient monitoring market face patient compliance that is close to zero. There are currently no home monitoring solutions available that provide a passive user experience and deliver a rich, patient-contextual data set.
The Spry Health approach to patient experience is to provide a monitoring device designed to blend into a patient’s life; it doesn’t require external input or habit change. It balances patient experience and engagement with accurate data collection that gives actionable insights into a patient’s health. The Band enables medical providers to remotely identify clinical deterioration of individuals early. This prioritization can help “course correct,” avoid an exacerbation, and improve patient outcomes. The system is also designed to empower providers by making their existing workflows and operations more efficient, rather than disrupting them. Identifying the patients most in need enables clinicians to improve productivity and spend more time with these patients, while assuring them that the rest of their patients are fine.
In this talk, we’ll discuss at length our thoughts on what clinical data is “good enough” to drive clinical decision for patients at home and how to balance quality patient experience and quality of clinical data. We will focus on how prioritizing patient and clinician experience enables capture of real world data and opens up unlimited medical and research possibilities.
