It’s time to redefine disease management. It’s time to move from strictly reactive intervention to proactive healthcare. It’s time to engage people in their own care and reach them where they live.
Today, instead of treating health problems at the crisis point, we can address issues before they become emergencies. With the evolution of remote patient monitoring to virtual care coordination and proactive health management, devices such as the Intel-GE Care Innovations™ Guide can help catch potential issues early on, reach people at “teachable moments” when they’re ready to adopt healthy behaviors, and shift non-urgent care away from hospitals and into homes and communities.
As a Windows*-based, FDA-cleared solution for managing chronic conditions in the home, the Care Innovations™ Guide and its easy-to-use touch screen and user interface allows people to be more proactive in the care and management of chronic diseases as well as post-op recovery, blood pressure control, and more.
Worldwide, healthcare is moving toward a more proactive model and the Care Innovations™ Guide can be an important connection between patients and their healthcare providers. The Guide is a comprehensive, next-generation, FDA-cleared remote monitoring product that supports the evolution to virtual care coordination. Care Innovations™ Guide-Virtual Care Suite helps clinicians and caregivers remotely manage the healthcare and chronic conditions of a diverse population.
With higher incidences of chronic disease, a growing senior population, and more people wanting to age at home, the Guide’s flexible platform and video conferencing capabilities can help address healthcare needs as well as lifestyle, care coordination, nutrition, and more. From ongoing engagement and personalized care to real-time information and overall patient satisfaction, the Guide is about collaborating toward better healthcare and lower costs.
For families, caregivers, seniors, and others
The Care Innovations™ Guide helps deliver healthcare collaboration, coordination, and management that goes wherever needed. Indeed, a sales manager with diabetes whose job requires her to travel can use the Guide to stay in touch with her care coordinator wherever she goes. In addition to helping her and people like her live on their own terms, the Guide can help people stay on a care protocol, can reduce hospital readmissions, and lower overall healthcare costs.
With assistance from the Guide, managing disease becomes all about managing health and catching issues before they become crises. It’s about home- and community-based models of care that engage loved ones, caregivers, clinicians, and help those in need. It’s about empowering someone with a chronic condition in a way that says you are not alone, you are in control, and you deserve to live your life with confidence.
