The Best Doctor Ever?

End-User Experiences & Applications 3 Replies

 

In the US, the average healthy adult may see a physician once a year for their annual check-up. During that visit, their physician will make sweeping health decisions about that patient from a single visit! THAT'S INSANE!

 

What if continuous monitoring with smart textiles could change that and give us the ability to be proactive, instead of reactive, with healthcare.

 

Do you think this could be a reality? What are the risks? Could this help bring down the skyrocketing healthcare costs?
