What is the missing link , is there any product that offers 360 degree solutions including drug delivery at home

CVS Health is looking to do something here with Uber. A big part of the missing link that no one is tackling is that prescription orders are part of the patient discharge plans when they leave the hospital. About 1/3rd of patients don't fill their scripts upon discharge and another 1/3rd don't adhere correctly to the the discharge plans. Underttanding the patient journey is key. - Denise

A true 360 telehealth system would require sensors that can provide doctors with the data they need for an accurate diagnosis as well as sensors to monitor a patient's compliance with their medical/medication instructions. Compliance is a greater concern for elderly patients who are often being treated for multiple conditions. While the appropriate sensors may already exist as part of smart home technology, I am not certain that any company has created an integrated system to diagnose and monitor patients remotely except in specific cases such as telemetric heart monitors for patients with heart disease.
