Oculus Health is launching disease specific management modules for its patient care platform to address management of chronic conditions such as diabetes, heart disease, hypertension, asthma, and stroke.
More than 145 million people, or almost half of all Americans, live with a chronic condition.Called Oculus Trackers, the product delivers individualized care plans for each condition, while assisting providers with customizing patient care plans. This approach — according to Oculus' Chief Medical Officer, Kishori Somyreddy, M.D. who led the team of clinicians in the product development — will ensure that the most proven disease mechanisms are effectively delivered to patients, and that they are able to follow and report their care plan adherence in a consistent manner.
"It [Oculus Trackers] will facilitate a physician designed plan for each patient, customized to their needs and at the same time incentivizes the patient to manage the condition providing a sense of wellbeing and good health overall," said Dr. Somyreddy.
Recent data shows that more than 145 million people, or almost half of all Americans, live with a chronic condition. That number is projected to increase by more than one percent per year by 2030, resulting in an estimated chronically ill population of 171 million.
