A collection of innovative hospitals are partnering with GE Healthcare and Intel to launch a new model of healthcare delivery for patients called the Intel Health Guide. The unit looks fairly user-friendly and unobtrusive, despite its state-of-the-art functionality.
The Guide will empower patients to better manage their care because they can easily communicate with their doctor, review educational content, and access their own health information. In cancer care, for example, patients have to manage their complex treatment plans and changing health status on a daily and sometimes hourly basis. This unit can give patients the freedom to take control of their care, which can boost confidence and well-being.
In addition, the Guide offers an online interface that allows clinicians to securely monitor patients in their homes and manage care remotely. This reduces costly and time-consuming office visits. As tele and virtual health continue to gain momentum in the market, innovations like the Guide will be important tools in the evolution of care. Intel’s website says that “the Guide strengthens the connection between healthcare professionals and patients. This personal connection helps make disease management easier and enables a model for mobile healthcare monitoring.”
