Health care that follows you from home to hospital and back

Professor Marjorie Skubic of the University of Missouri has created a suite of health care technologies that identify when an individual falls in their home or when their physical behavior changes over time. As part of the Closed Loop Healthcare team at the Smart Amercia Expo, Skubic worked to connect the technologies she's created with those developed by other teams with similar health care goals. The team's ultimate goal is to "close the loop" of health care coverage so devices, data and doctors' diagnoses can be integrated for the good of the patient.
