One of the biggest challenges that the health systems face in general is the increasing burden of chronic disease, with the certainty that the future of health care in the coming decades will be dominated by the presence of this type of disease, making it urgent to implement health policies more focused on health promotion and disease prevention.
The scenario characterized by the increase of chronic disease and, more specifically, by the increasing number of people with multiple chronic diseases in old age, conditions a higher pressure on the use of health services, making it urgent to change the health care system to make it more sustainable.
In this context, telecare responds to the focus on disease prevention and health promotion, presenting innovative solutions and alternatives for reducing the costs of this type of disease by reducing the need to search for differentiated care that is more expensive. It contributes to the reduction of avoidable hospitalizations and to a reduction in the average time of hospitalization when patients can be monitored remotely. In this sense, it becomes possible to mitigate the risk of uncertainty associated with the hospital activity by reducing costs that are unexpected, unpredictable and difficult to forecast.
Telemonitoring itself promises to revolutionize the way health care is provided and how to prevent and anticipate the disease, creating the necessary mechanisms for the patients and their needs to be managed from the community.
Telecare also has the ability to intervene in areas such as quality, in the sense that it offers patients living in remote areas access to healthcare, overcoming regional asymmetries and, on the other hand, it reduces exposure to hospital environments with higher levels of nosocomial risk.
In order to guarantee the autonomy of the various direct stakeholders in the provision of health care, Glintt offers mobility solutions accessible at any time and place in order to make the experience of patients and health professionals more efficient, pleasant and intuitive.
