Missing the Whole Individual
The US healthcare system, for all its efforts to digitize and secure personal health information, remains incredibly fragmented, putting both individuals and clinicians at a disadvantage when charting a path for treatment and aftercare. 44% of patient cases are missing relevant medical data.*
After a medical treatment, many individuals don’t follow their medication regimen or recommended health monitoring, or make the lifestyle changes needed to stay healthy. Individuals struggle with post-treatment regimens for multiple reasons, including behavioral, environmental, and lack of clear communications.
- 40% of patients struggle with multiple prescription plans
- Misunderstanding, forgetting, resisting or just “feeling better”
- 70% of patients cannot adhere successfully when lifestyle changes are included in the treatment plan
The Hcare Platform serves as a launching pad for individuals to gain more control over their personal health information, enabling the capture of additional, relevant health and health-related data that can ultimately improve their recovery and therapies, and make their care teams more effective and efficient.
It’s a human-centric approach that eases the challenges of collaboration within care for professionals, and reduces the negative outcomes– from pain and stress to costs and readmissions. The Hcare Platform empowers individuals to become more educated in the process, so communication improves throughout the course of care. In the long run, it creates better functioning, healthier communities.
