The healthcare industry is going through a really challenging time right now. The move from fee-for-service to value-based care is forcing healthcare providers to provide quality care while also mitigating the cost of giving that care.
Remote Patent Monitoring (RPM) is a platform with the potential to help providers strike that balance. It means allowing patients to use devices and technology to provide data to providers in real-time, improving quality of care, while opening up new revenue streams for providers due to new reimbursement codes from Medicare.
RPM systems in the past have been bulky with limited utility
Foresight uses the patient's smartphone camera, combined with AI, to supercharge the level of patient monitoring. For my use case in this hackathon, a patient can take a picture of their wound and automatically track its healing process using AI.
