Cleveland Clinic/Microsoft Pilot Promising; Home Health Services May Benefit Chronic Disease Management
Date:3/1/2010

"The prevalence of chronic disease is rising at an alarming rate in the United States, absorbing an ever-increasing portion of the nation's healthcare dollars," said C. Martin Harris, M.D., Chief Information Officer, Cleveland Clinic. "If we are to lessen this strain on our nation's economy and healthcare system, we have to change our thinking about how and where healthcare should be delivered, while developing innovative, cost-effective solutions that allow patients to proactively manage their healthcare."

Nearly half of all Americans are now diagnosed with at least one chronic condition, accounting for 75 percent of nation's healthcare spending.

"Although more research is certainly needed, the results of this observational study are promising, suggesting that at-home medical devices can help patients and doctors better track chronic conditions, coordinate treatment schedules, manage medication regimens and schedule timely interventions," Dr. Harris said. "Ultimately, such improvements make for more efficient healthcare, healthier patients and possibly a reduction in healthcare costs."
