According to the World Health Organization, the group of older adults is characterized by the presence of multiple chronic diseases that require long and complex treatments, consuming 50% of the medications prescribed in developing countries. However, an alarming problem is that many of them do not comply with the medical treatment prescribed by their doctors. This is why this is known as poor adherence to medical treatment in the elderly population.
Create a company specialized in the field of telemedicine, focusing particularly on two key aspects: Teleguidance and Telemonitoring of older adults. The main objective is to increase adherence to treatment in the adult population, therefore monitoring and support will be carried out to improve complications and ensure continuous and adequate care. Likewise, the implementation of these services in the field of telemedicine would be a significant advance in health care for the elderly population.
This approach will have an extremely positive and beneficial impact on older adults. It will help improve your health, reduce out-of-pocket spending on healthcare, increase patients' quality of life, and significantly reduce morbidity. Our company is committed to being a catalyst for healthier, more fulfilling aging in the senior community.
