This insight into their own health increases their health literacy to be better prepared for medical appointments and further improve their understanding of and adherence to treatment plans."
"Health Vector was born following our team member's misdiagnosis of an acute condition that almost cost him his life. With 12 million Americans misdiagnosed every year, we realized firsthand that medical errors and miscommunication are dangerous and costly mistakes, and it was clear that there was a gaping hole in the industry for a solution that allowed patients to better track and understand their health and co-write their diagnosis narrative," Werner Geissler, chairman of Health Vector. "That is why we developed the unique Health Vector app, to strengthen the patient-physician partnership, and enable users track, organize, and report on health and lifestyle data that drives better health decisions and outcomes."
