This article was written in 2016. December 2018 is here and almost gone. My passion is designing a user-friendly telehealth model before the healthcare industry designs it for the US. The questions that swirl in my mind are; What will this look like? Who will this model serve best? How should the healthcare system interface with this model? How can the individual take control of the data and seek out the appropriate individual plan?
In my opinion, the key is to have a plan that focuses on Prevention and not the Cure.
