Much has been made of the potential of connected devices, which could give doctors continuous data on their patients at all times. However, physicians have been known to pushback on this idea because so much data can overwhelm them. Physicians say they already have too much to do. They won’t use a new technology if it doesn’t have proven gains or if it significantly adds to their workload.
We know it’s important to make patients feel cared for and to give physicians the ability to keep doing their jobs. That’s why it’s noteworthy when an entrepreneur says his company’s offering can make patients feel more empathy from their physicians while also freeing up physician time.
