Tell us about your product or service.
How often do you or a family member ask the question…What did the Doctor Say? Understanding instructions from your healthcare provider can make the difference in whether or not you get better.
Talking HealthCards are a simple solution to recalling and sharing “just what the doctor said”. Research shows that patients forget over 50% of what their doctor says…immediately. Yet when we give patients and family members the right information, their outcomes improve. Talking HealthCards allow patients to record their care instructions with one push of a Record button. One push of a Play button allows them to listen and share their personalized information. They are an innovative way to boost confidence and engage patients and their families in their care.
What inspired you to launch your business?
I am passionate about finding ways to do things better. And, healthcare is shifting to consumer driven care. Patients want and need tools to help them understand how their actions and/or inactions affect their health. They want to be able to better manage their health. I’m excited to be a part of the self-care movement.
What problem does your business or organization solve?
Health Literacy & Medication and treatment adherence – allowing patients to -know their diagnosis
-better understand their medications and treatment options
-better understand thier medication and treatment instructions
-begin to make a connection between their daily habits and their health
What has been your biggest challenge and how are you working to overcome it?
The economics of health care. Healthcare providers are service providers and the more services they provide, the more money they make. We are trying to find more consumer driven models, such as Patient Centered Medical Homes and Health Coaching oppotunities. And possibly looking at distributors that would provide DTC opportunity.
