The cost of chronic disease manage-ment places a huge burden on the economies of many countries. Diabetes costs alone range from 16%-41% of national health expenditures for the top 10 most affected countries1. But now because of IoT technology, the healthcare landscape is changing and costs can be radically lowered. Herein lies a massive opportunity for service providers and network operators to resell digital health technologies.
The number one problem with chronic diseases, such as asthma, diabetes, and hypertension worldwide, is that patients achieve less than a 50% compliance rate with the treatment regimen prescribed by their doctors2. Key studies of remote healthcare delivered solutions result-ed in substantial improvements to patient outcomes: 53% reduced days of bed care, 30% less hospital admissions, and 28% fewer days of mental health-related bed care. Patient satisfaction also rose to between 86%–93% in three categories, plus per-consultation travel costs dropped significantly. One study showed an annual savings of $2,000 per patient3.
Chronic diseases can be effectively managed by providing tools to individuals along with tracking and remote coaching. Elder patients can also live independently much longer with professional and family support aided by IoT technologies.
Achieving success with remote health services is difficult because of the domain expertise required to shape behavior change. Prodea has lever-aged its IoT Service X-Change platform and partner ecosystem to offers IoT-based health management services that are optimized for service providers and network operators to resell to healthcare enterprises and government institutions.
