Improving the Health of High Risk Populations with Mobile Technology

ED visits represent only 2-7% of healthcare spending in the US.  While the ED visit is not the issue, some patients do not have other sources of care or have unmanaged chronic problems that forces them to become users of high cost healthcare resources. To improve the health of these high-risk populations, mHealth has shown strong potential to increase the health of these patients and decreasing their ED visits.
