An aging and overweight population has shifted the industry focus from acute care to chronic disease management, this requires self-management and adherence to medical and physical activities. However many patients don’t comply with their drug regimens.
We conduct studies that use technology to uplift medical adherence by sending medical-adherence reminders, constructing clinical and family support networks, obtaining real-time feedback from patients, and raising awareness.
Technology advancements such as IoT, 4G networks, mobile applications, AI platforms such as IBM Watson Health, and sophisticated information systems provoke further research in DSRG. We are focusing on the following areas:
- Medical-adherence reminders
- Chronic disease management
- Real-time feedback
- Inclusion of family and clinicians in treatment plan
