THE VAST MAJORITY OF OUR LIVES we take care of ourselves or family members take care of us — doctors are not in the picture.
Most health technology is geared toward professionals. There is some technology focused on patient-provider interaction such as patient engagement, tele-monitoring and personal health records — but hardly any developed for people to use in their own lives when doctors are not in the picture.
The average patient spends only about an hour or two with a doctor or other health provider during the course of a whole year. The other 99% of the time they are on their own.
This video, shot at the recent Medicine X Conference held at Stanford University’s School of Medicine caused quite a stir.
Rajiv Mehta, founder of Unfrazzle, believes technology developers need to look at the healthcare needs of people outside of the doctor’s office or hospital. There is a huge need here and a huge opportunity.
