Remember when you forgot the exact details of the wellness plan your doctor made for you? Or that time when you skipped a day of your pills because you were too rushed in the morning and did’t have time? What if those had been your diabetes medication? Or the day you didn’t monitor your health led to further complications? These lapses in memory and unstructured medical plans have led to financially and physically costly results. This breakout demoed how our devices can make us adherent patients and empowered health promoters.
In the midst of the constantly shifting landscape of healthcare, there is a strong and central focus on the quality of care delivered to patients.

This panel allowed for a lively conversation between the technology innovators on the front lines, the physicians and the thought leaders in quality improvement.
