Cardiometabolic Syndrome

  • It’s bad


Technology in the US

  • As of January 2014:

    • 91% of American adults have a cell phone

    • 55% of American adults have a smartphone

    • 32% of American adults own an e-reader

    • 42% of American adults own a tablet computer

Point-of-Care Analysis

http://www.pewinternet.org/fact-sheets/mobile-technology-fact-sheet/


Three-pronged Approach

  • Patient – self-empowerment, self-diagnosis

  • Physician – improved utilization of data at point of care

  • Hospital – patient tracking, prevention of costly re-admissions


Patient

  • Self-Analysis tool

  • Cardiometabolic syndrome “Bulls Eye”

  • Simple, visual input allows patients to see where they stand in terms of ideal cardiometabolic health

  • Targeted areas of improvement


Patient


Physician

  • More difficult to implement technology in a helpful way

  • Diverse set of needs

  • Fewer preventitive care applications


Physician

  • Application designed specifically around the care of patients with known coronary artery disease (CAD)

  • CAD affects 1 in 20 adults in the US

  • Complications from CAD are leading causes of death in the US for both men and women


Physician

  • ACC/AHA guidelines guide physician practices for CAD based on best available data

  • Guidelines based on anatomy, patient demographics, and patient comorbidities

  • In all, 164 (!!!) different decision points exist based on these guidelines

  • Impossible for practitioners to memorize them all


Physician

  • Application which codifies the ACC/AHA guidelines for CAD

  • After simple data entry, practitioner receives best available data on smartphone to guide patient therapy

  • May alter procedural volumes

  • Application being developed with plans to study implementation


Hospital

  • User friendly application for smartphones and tablets; web-based version as well

  • Accessible anywhere, even internationally

  • Quick automatic updates to database twice daily, no need to manually enter later; less paperwork

  • Creates a partnership between the physicians and patients to not only keep track of recovery but also to proactively maintain their health


Hospital


Summary

  • Tens of millions of Americans use a smartphone every day

  • Tens of millions of Americans should use their smartphones to improve their health and their healthcare

  • Multiple access points across the healthcare continuum for technology to facilitate communication
