High Quality, Low Cost HealthCare Video Interview Series: Dr. Jennifer Dyer and EndoGoal
Last week, we met with Casey Quinlan who advocated asking the question, "How Much Is That?" in order to promote cost transparency in healthcare.
This week, we visit with Dr. Jennifer Dyer, in Columbus, Ohio. Jen is a pediatric endocrinologist and entrepreneur and "Endogoddess" on Twitter and her blogsite. Her mobile app, EndoGoal, has just been released. EndoGoal helps those with diabetes monitor their glucose and, through gamification, rewards them when they do. For additional information, see the post on EndoGoal.
For those with chronic disease, self-monitoring is crucial. If the patients can monitor themselves, at home, they can reduce medical emergencies and hospitalizations, thus reducing costs and raising quality of care.
