    New technologies transform IOP monitoring, digital health



    Glaucoma patients don’t get much time with ophthalmologists. The typical ophthalmologist sees 68 patients a day and the typical patient gets 5 minutes of physician time. It’s no wonder that most patients are uncomfortable with the level of information they don’t have. And it’s no wonder that patients are woefully nonadherent to medication regimens.

    “Our biggest challenge in health care is communication,” said Richard Awdeh, MD, founder and CEO of CheckedUp, a mobile health information platform. “Clinical trials show that we can engage patients, educate and engage them to improve adherence, and change their behavior as part of chronic disease management.”

    CheckedUp delivers patient education, disease management, and physician messages to smart phones, tablets, and other mobile devices. Each communication can be tailored to the specific patient.

    “Adoption rates are high in trials and use dramatically reduces worry for patients,” Dr. Awdeh said. “We see better medication use and better retention of information.”
