We're making it easier to find health-related resources
There is an abundance of health-related resources - educational content, web and mobile apps, self-monitoring devices, services, systems and people - that may improve comprehension, communications and compliance, and ultimately improving outcomes.
The consumerization of healthcare is increasing competition with many stakeholders wanting to "own" the patient. Ultimately, the patient owns her/his disease(s). Collaboration and care coordination among stakeholders is essential to best meet the needs of each patient.
If patients cannot easily find resources, an opportunity to contribute to their Quality-of-Life is lost. The first step is identifying what resources are available. Mill City ICC is developing a comprehensive Resource Registry for chronic diseases.
