According to CDC, 6 in 10 adults in US have a chronic disease, while 4 in 10 US citizens have two or more chronic conditions. In Canada we can see the similar situation with 40% of adults having at least one chronic condition. Heart disease, diabetes and Alzheimer’s are among the most common ones.
The challenge with the traditional healthcare delivery is the incomplete assessment of treatment response. The in-hospital checks are limited and doesn’t show the overall picture in the progression. Moreover, in the case of seniors with chronic conditions there is a need for frequent follow up which is not always possible. The need for treatment and possible adjustments in a treatment plan are usually identified during these visits. So it is important to find ways in order to keep under control the existing chronic conditions to avoid their progression to life-threatening levels.
