In 2013, of 26 billion dollars spent on patient readmissions in Medicare, an estimated 17 billion of this was generated by readmissions caused by avoidable factors. The most preventable of these factors - and arguably the most severe - are improper administration of therapy and medication. To combat this, we are developing a lean, smartphone-based telemedical system that not only provides personal health statistics to the patient, but relays this information to the doctor allowing for a more tailored approach to medicine. By leveraging the latest open source health monitoring algorithms and libraries, we have created a reliable, low-cost and easily implementable solution that has the potential to simultaneously improve patient care and dramatically reduce healthcare expenditure.
