Abstract

The ongoing shifts in health financing towards payment for value creates enormous new opportunities for providers to rethink how chronic disease is managed. The proliferation of wireless technologies – and advances in behavioral science – could create a new ecosystem that supports a more effective and efficient approach to managing chronic disease and supporting patients in the 5,000+ hours per year when they are not in front of a health care provider.
