People with chronic disabilities are systematically disadvantaged when seeking medical help. This often results in missed diagnoses, lack of early interventions, substantial healthcare costs, and inadequate long-term management. Access to primary care remains the number one culprit.
We propose an innovative mobile application, CareGoggles, featuring a location-based list of healthcare services and interactive notifications to remember appointments, manage medications, and share HIPAA-compliant information. Integrating wearable technology with CareGoggles will enhance self-monitoring and allow real-time medical evaluations. CareGoggles will improve primary care access and health outcomes, thereby empowering patients to become better stewards of their own health.
While a few similar services are available, none are as patient-friendly and cost-effective as CareGoggles. We have partnered with the Rutgers-affiliated Student Family Health Care Clinic to pilot our application.
