The panel highlighted a great breath of mobile health and wellness products being developed. Yan Chow who I also heard at the SV Health Meeting in Sunnyvale. He listed the barriers to successful technology deployments.
Lack of reimbursement – #1
Inconsistent outcome research
Understand business case
Standard of care, which does not include mHealth
Scalability & integration
Regulatory – can’t consult across state lines except in VA
Legal – standard of care not new or unique
The panel talked about a need for new models of care including home visits and mobile. Yan Chow summed up the situation well when he said at the SV Health Meeting earlier that week, “We are at a cliff in healthcare. Will we just go into the future screaming?”
