THE COLLABORATIVE ROLE OF TECHNOLOGY AND PHARMD IN MANAGING CHRONIC CONDITIONS

SHARESHARESHARE
The prevalence and cost of chronic, cardiometabolic conditions like Type 2 Diabetes and Heart Disease is one of the greatest healthcare challenges we face today. Luckily, price points are coming down on cellular and Bluetooth-enabled medical devices like blood pressure cuffs and glucometers, and at the same time, enhanced interoperability capabilities are allowing us to seamlessly pull patient-generated data from the devices into analytics platforms and combine it with patient record data from the EHR.  The connection gives clinicians a more complete view of their patients’ health whether at the point-of-care or virtually giving them the ability to detect costly complications before they happen, and prompting them to intervene with appropriate guideline-based management.
