Self care home care and mobile care have roots and relevance

Self-care, home care and mobile care have roots and relevance

  • ≤18th C: Health care happens mostly at home and work

  • 19th C: Health care professionalizes and institutionalizes

  • 1950: 40% of MD visits are still house calls

  • 1965: Medicare includes home health, with a low profile

  • 1980s: Chronic conditions emerge as huge cost drivers

  • 1990s: “90% of diabetes care is self-care”

  • 1996: Kaiser launches online health site for members

  • 1999: Early “remote patient monitors” come to market

  • 2002: Healthcare Unbound (over)


2002 healthcare unbound

2002: Healthcare Unbound

Technology-enabled self-care, home care and mobile care have inescapably populist dimensions, rebalancing power and control towards the grassroots.

“The centralizing forces of the 1900s will yield to the decentralizing forces of the 2000s. Technology assisting, innovators will light out from 20th Century settings – hospitals, doctors’ offices and nursing homes – in order to de-institutionalize healthcare.”

“Technology in, on, and around the body that frees care from formal institutions.”

What wireless brings to the party

What wireless brings to the party

  • Ubiquity

  • Feedback

“Learning is most likely if people get immediate, clear feedback. … Well-designed systems tell people when they are doing well and when they are making mistakes.”

-- Thaler and Sunstein,

Nudge (2008)


Still for most things today we re wired not wireless

Still, for most things today we’re wired, not wireless

Percent of North American adult users of a “cell phone/smart phone or handheld wireless device” who do the following at least once a month

Base: 44,959 North American adults with a mobile phone

Source: Forrester Research, “The State Of Consumers And Technology: Benchmark 2008”


What wireless can t do yet

What wireless can’t do (yet)

  • Work to mission-critical perfection (network coverage, battery life, privacy, etc.)

  • Maintain the cell phone’s “form factor” (who cares!)

  • Create the “business models” – ways to pay for services

  • Harmonize ubiquity with Medicare’s homebound requirement

  • Change human behavior when feedback mechanisms are imperfect and feedback itself is necessary but not sufficient
