CollaboRhythm – Redefining the doctor-patient relationship

Redefining the doctor-patient relationship – John Moore MD

The doctor-patient relationship is deteriorating. And today’s information technology solutions are exacerbating the problem. They perpetuate paternalistic decision-making and episodic care, and they fail to assist doctors in making persuasive arguments to their patients.

CollaboRhythm is a technological framework that encourages new paradigms in doctor-patient interaction to improve health outcomes and the patient experience. It uses ubiquitous connectivity, collaborative decision-making, and compelling interfaces and visualizations to educate patients, improve treatment adherence, and deliver care at any point in time or space with seamless transitions.
