When doctors and nurses are not available most of our health teams become refocused to our families and community. Just like practitioners, these health coordinators- parents, children, aunts & uncles, friends- need tools to help maintain the health of the patient. Monitors in the home, web platforms that collect and organize health data are enhancing the experience of the extended team and improving the health outcomes of the patient.
