Chronic disease is the worlds most lethal killer. In the United States, chronic diseases, such as heart disease, cancer, obstructive pulmonary disorder or diabetes cause 70% of all deaths and 75% of health spending. The treatment could be dramatically improved causing less deaths and reducing cost with a network that can coordinate all the treatment for the patient, also allowing for relevant information and reminders to be messaged to patients phones and displayed on their computers.
MicroHealth offers such a social health network. They look to empower people with chronic conditions, specifically hemophilia, to live healthier lives and healthcare professionals to improve clinical outcomes by leveraging mobile technology and a social health network. Company s mission is to shape the future of chronic care management by engaging patients, triggering positive behavior change, and connecting all care participants to make better health decisions.
