"Using sensors for digital patient engagement"
Featuring Maria Schneider, CEO and co-founder, Dynofit Inc.
The American health care system is in transition. A key component of the change is shifting more accountability for personal health to the patient and moving longer term patient recovery and rehab into lower cost settings. Biometric sensors will provide the medical data and cell phones and mobile systems will provide communication and connection to the health care teams in the new paradigm. This talk will explore the practical uses for sensors in digital patient engagement.
