In Search of Solutions to the Rising Cost of Health Care

Much of the nation has been in search of practical and real world solutions to the rising cost of health care in the United States, as well as in other countries. This week in Technology Today, we present two possible solutions that seem to be working.

We’re joined by Catherine Calarco, VP of HeartMath, a medical consumer electronic device maker behind the emWave product allowing an individual to both track and self-regulate their heart rate and stress levels. Doing so, in the company’s view, significantly improves the short and long term health of the individual – and therefore reduces their use of the health care system bringing down overall costs.

We’re also joined by Dr. Matthew Miller, CMO of Danbury Hospital who has led numerous award winning initiatives that actually and demonstrably achieved the twin goals of improving the quality of care and decreasing the costs of delivering care.

We’ll ask both Catherine and Dr. Miller about how they have been able to achieve success and whether their solutions may in fact be the real solutions to our global health care crisis.

Are you part of an initiative to help provide a solution to the rising cost of health care? Share it with us. We’d love to hear from you!
