Ochsner Health uses iPhone technology to remotely monitor patients

New Orleans-based Ochsner Health's chief clinical transformation officer, Richard Milani, MD, said the health system is using iPhone technology to monitor gait, AMA Update reported July 31. 

The health system uses artificial intelligence to identify patients at risk for falls and pairs that with the remote technology, which helps identify the populations most at risk. 

Ochsner then has a completely virtual program that patients go through so that they can reduce falls.   

The combination of remote technology and AI allows the health system to collect data through passive monitoring so that it can see "who's doing what and who's getting better," according to Dr. Milani. 

"I think what's going to happen over time is that as technologies continue to be more improved, our abilities to identify populations with a problem are going to be real," Dr. Milani said. "And we're going to not have to wait on them to figure it out. We should be able to help figure it out for them and respond in the moment."
