NEW YORK, July 18, 2013 /PRNewswire/ -- Valued at over $110 billion in 2012, the United States' medical technology industry is rapidly expanding. Fitango, an interactive e-health platform, has contributed to this growth through the development of their innovative solution that aims to improve health care outcomes and adherence.
This summer, the New York based company is gearing up to share its insight and offerings at the Health 2.0 conference, a showcase of cutting-edge health care innovations, taking place in Manhattan on July 24th. Executives from the company will also attend the Accountable Care Expo, the nation's premiere Accountable Care collaboration event taking place in Indianapolis, Indiana on August 7th.
Nathalie Bloch, MD, Fitango's Chief Medical Officer, will represent the company at Health 2.0's panel discussion on the importance of treatment adherence and disease prevention to reduce healthcare costs. Bloch is excited to meet with like-minded attendees at the showcase, and introduce Fitango's health care solutions.
"Fitango's innovative technology can vastly improve patient care while simultaneously making consumers active participants in their health," says Bloch. "Meeting with the leaders of the NYC health care innovation scene at Health 2.0 is an exciting opportunity for ideas and creativity to flourish that can help those who matter most. The patients."
Members of the Fitango team will again share their efforts to improve American healthcare at the Accountable Care Expo. There, leaders from the company will spearhead a discussion about combating non-adherence in the new era of the Affordable Care Act.
A New England Journal of Medicine study found that one in five patients being discharged from hospitals is readmitted within 30 days. Fitango hopes that their web-based solution, which combines step-by-step health adherence guides, social support and education, will improve wellness outcomes for patients by helping health care providers improve their quality of care.
Fitango plans to play an integral role in the new era of Accountable Care, and looks forward to presenting their offerings and ideas this summer at both events.
