Home health technologies will have an increasingly larger role to play in healthcare delivery as the silver tsunami of the aging population strain the system. And if more consumers embrace preventative care that can easily be done in the home.
It’s important to understand that home health technologies are leveraged in home health settings by clinicians for home health patients, and at-home or home-based health technologies are diagnostic and/or screening tools that can be used in non-clinical settings for the purpose of understanding overall health conditions.
Home-based health technologies are any preventive care technology tool that elevates health. This includes tools like blood pressure cuffs, weight scales, thermometers and other screening tools that can be used to gauge a biometric value.
