Can you create a technology that supports the advancement of at-home or community-based health care?
Digital solutions empower consumers and providers to actively engage in managing and improving health outside of traditional clinical systems. New technologies provide convenient, affordable, and comfortable care within homes and communities. This movement can greatly support individuals of all ages across a variety of geographies. However, despite these benefits, the US continues to use mostly institution-based care models. Cultural shifts and more innovation is required to give individuals, caregivers, and providers the tools they need to address healthy living within the home and community.
