“75% of healthcare dollars are spent on chronic diseases”
This is a frequently cited fact. We and our client partners believe that a great deal of sickness and cost from chronic disease can be reduced through better self-monitoring by the patient and their family.
Individuals with chronic diseases like diabetes and high blood pressure should check basic vitals regularly – like blood glucose and blood pressure – to make sure they aren’t getting sicker. Often they don’t remember to, especially those with the highest risk. We believe through involving friends, family and the patient’s care team, we can improve patient health and reduce visits to the ER.
During the ACE ’13 conference in Chicago, Galen introduced Dragonfly, a unique remote patient monitoring app.
Dragonfly builds on basic remote monitoring of patient health. Remote patient monitoring has itself proven effective in managing chronic diseases – reducing hospital admissions, readmissions and reducing the overall cost of care.
What makes Dragonfly different?
- EHR – Integrated – physicians order care plans for patients through their EHR. The patient receives the specific self-management plan on their phone. The care team sees patient reported data in the EHR and receives notifications of critical vitals from the patient.
