Thanks guys, I really appreciate you taking the time out and reading through. Sorry I might not have been able to explain it fully, here are my thoughts on post fracture and how my idea works well with it.
Once the patient is discharged from hospital they go back to their PCP and possibly will start therapy with a care setting. To fully recover this therapy needs to continue for some period and patients needs to fully understand the benefits and get involve with the plan. Now the treatment plan could be drug therapy, exercise or nutritional plan. There can be one or different care settings involved and ideally all of them should coordinate the care effectively to get best results and reduce redundancy in treatment to lower the cost. Patients also needs to get involved in their own care. This is where I think my idea OsteoVault can provide great value. It is a cloud application with an app so, provides better communication among the care team, keep patients involved in their own care by tracking and monitoring their progress on the plan. As Susan mentioned she loves tracking her steps, that’s just one metric, imagine if I let you track everything on your treatment plan or occupational therapy and if you miss a task or not performing well on a task the system alerts you and your care provider. Also I mentioned doctors will be able to share plans, when I say plans it also mean exercise videos/instructions that users can do at home.
To sum it all up, I see OsteoVault as a single dashboard driver application that will keep patients in control of their recovery and avoid a second episode be it therapy tasks, test appointments, drug plan and outcome, community support or predictive measures that directly integrated with Primary care.
Reason I touched the early identification process and insurances companies deeply is because in my opinion that could be an effective way to market this idea.
I hope it makes a little more sense now, I will try and refine it further before end date.
