The Center for Future Health is working to create personal health technology for proactive health systems.
The Center for Future Health (CFH) was founded in 1998 to give patients, caregivers, and physicians better health status information through personal health technology. We are working toward a proactive health system that supports the personal health care needs of all.
What is a Proactive Health System?
- A system designed for early detection, personalized care, and caregiver support rather than crisis management
- A system that summarizes personal health information for individuals and caregivers to promote better health decisions by individuals at home
- A system that travels with them: At home, in community centers, and when visiting their medical provider
In summary, a Proactive Health System puts healthcare technologies into everyday lives, and off loads formal institutions when appropriate. It is a system of sensors and information technology that alerts individuals when their health status trends away from normal, and helps them return to health.
