BodiGuide’s View of the Future of Healthcare
Our goal is to keep heart failure patients out of the hospital.
Despite various barriers we all know exist, one of the largest contributors to this problem is that healthcare systems are designed to focus on treatment after decompensation occurs, rather than proactive monitoring and prevention.
That’s a problem because heart failure is a complex disease and most patients are ill equipped to manage their changing condition or identify the need for treatment.
We all know that heart failure patients are often unwilling or unable to adequately monitor the progression of their disease. Heart failure patients often fail to recognize the subtle signs and symptoms of possible instability, and take appropriate action before reaching a crisis state that requires hospitalization.
That’s why, to achieve the goal of reduced hospitalization, we need to utilize a simple, low-cost method of automatically identifying heart failure decompensation so that doctors can intervene before hospitalization is required.
And the best method to do that is by providing the patient with a simple, trustworthy wearable device that continuously monitors peripheral edema and notifies the doctor, patient or caregiver of pending decompensation.
Not only does that achieve the goal, it also reduces the staff required to identify patients in need, and eliminates the cost of non-reimbursable HF readmissions.
