The Myth of older folks not wanting technology!

Dealing with the FDA is not for the faint of heart.
There is a workflow for dealing with the FDA. eg. Are you changing the intent of your product, Are you changing the hardware platform.

It has taken time to build the infrastructure and pioneer the prescription model.

It took three years to get software through the FDA. Because they were the first software app.

Do you focus on the most critically ill because they drive a lot of cost, or do you look at the larger population that could be sliding in to the critical zone. Dealing with the larger population needs scalable solutions.

Social Media has been a game changer for patient advocacy. ePatients are holding Health care accountable!
