Addressing chronic care beyond the clinic.
Our team of five was tasked with helping the Mayo Clinic rethink how care can be coordinated in primary care settings. We chose to focus on improving coordination of chronic care, viewing chronically ill patients as extreme users of the healthcare system.
Our concept, the CTM system, coordinates care using a mobile device and social support groups. The device provides individuals constant access to their health status along with a constant connection to other patients. By focusing on the patients' ability to see and share their daily decisions, the CTM system highlights the connection between everyday choices and health outcomes.
