Health care should not be one size fits all.
That’s according to Dr. Erich Huang, Onduo’s Chief Science and Innovation Officer. Huang has a long career in academic medicine at Duke University, and now spearheads clinical evidence generating programs and research at the virtual care company, which is based in Newton, Mass.
Huang, who is a Ph.D. and a medical doctor, notes that in today’s healthcare environment, there is little room for personalization. But he and his team at Onduo are working hard to change that.
“We need to be part of people’s lives to get signals that are health relevant and then help navigate them to better health,” he says.
He discusses how health care providers need to look at an individual’s activities, or a series of tests, to find better ways to personalize their care. Taking these signals from the course of an individual’s life and using them to tailor care over time is the future, states Huang.
