Together with his colleagues, Dr. Evan Muse, Director of Cardiovascular Genomics and Assistant Professor at STSI, provides a glimpse of how technologies will usher in a new era of health monitoring and care delivery via the smart medical home. By highlighting the advances in smartphone and sensor technologies, point of care diagnostics, and increased internet connectivity, the authors describe how a shift towards home-based health screening and disease management will revolutionize healthcare delivery in the future.
