The most expensive part of the healthcare system is treating patients in hospitals, which also happens to be where people least want to be when they are ill.
A healthier system of care that helps prevent people from getting sick was in line with Dartmouth-Hitchcock’s vision to create a sustainable health system.
With the proper knowledge, healthcare providers can obtain a more preventive and optimal system of care that improves the lives of people and communities served.
ImagineCare is designed to be sustainable, by keeping people out of the hospital through the utilization of technology that monitors the health status of chronically ill people. It operates by measuring signs such as blood pressure, oxygen and glucose levels, through wearable sensors.
The information gathered by ImagineCare is transmitted via smartphone to nurses and “health navigators” who analyze it with the help of other data sources. This allows those who use ImagineCare to stay abreast of each individual patient’s health risks and treatment.
ImagineCare was developed in collaboration with Microsoft at the Dartmouth–Hitchcock Medical Center, US and launched in 2016. The assets were recently sold to LifecareX, a Stockholm based digital health company.
Nate Larsen is the Chief Experience Officer at ImagineCare. As Director for Remote Medical Sensing at the Dartmouth-Hitchcock Medical Center in the United States, Nate Larsen co-led the team that developed ImagineCare.
