Patient care from home: Achieving optimal outcomes

There are thousands of wellness apps, devices, wearables and telehealth tools that can be used for chronic disease management and patient health monitoring at home. Although new technologies can lead to early identification of health concerns, they may also lead to unnecessary interventions that result in unintended complications and worse outcomes. In this episode, we reconnect with Juggy Jagannathan, PhD, AI evangelist for 3M, to consider which people are most likely to benefit from new care tools and strategies.

"Sometimes, the preventive strategies that you’re looking at may not necessarily be cost-effective in the short term, but if they help the population to be healthier and happier, that is an end goal itself... and in the long run, it’s going to make a difference."
— Juggy Jagannathan, PhD
