Motiva Remote Patient Management System. So while most people will be watching Lost VIII on their slick new HHD flat screens in the future, a goodly chunk of the aging baby boomer generation will probably be more interested in keeping themselves alive using interactive broadband television systems like this one from Philips. The service will let ‘care givers’ (lovely term that, eh?) provide educational material (e.g if you get this rash, call NOW), reminders (take your medicine dufus) and clinical monitoring. It sounds like healthcare is going all ‘flat-pack’ DIY IKEA on us, so be prepared.
The Motiva interactive healthcare platform uses broadband television, along with home vital sign measurement devices, to connect patients to their healthcare providers and medical support system. Our goal is to turn the home TV into the patient’s own personal healthcare channel or “virtual health coach.”…The patient will access their personalized content via an easy-to-use interactive television interface, delivered via a cable TV connection, standard set top box, and special remote control designed for older users. A nurse care manager, using the Motiva clinical information system, will monitor the patient’s condition and is alerted if follow-up is necessary.
