H. pylori infection is one of the leading causes of atrophic gastritis with a 92.7% prevalence rate among cases. Atrophic gastritis brings a variety of physical and psychological conditions including delayed gastric emptying, reflux symptoms, peripheral neuropathy, impaired immune function, impaired wound healing, depression, psychosis, and many others. Even worse, it can further lead to gastric cancer.
It is imperative for someone suffering from atrophic gastritis to receive continuous medical supervision and personal attention to enact necessary healthy lifestyle changes, benefit from treatment, and prevent their condition from worsening or even progressing to cancer.
The Care.Wallet would a be great solution for this. It would come with strong monitoring capabilities such as the How Are You Feeling Today (HAYFT) Care.Card. These Care.Cards can give the physician daily updates on the condition of the patient. And Care.Circles can be created to allow help and support from family and friends. The Care.Wallet also provides access to care networks like the Global Telehealth Exchange or Team.Care Network. The GTHE’s concierge services would allow the physician to look after the patient for whole care and treatment episodes, bringing greater efficiencies to care continuity.
The Care.Wallet is not just a single app. It is uniquely positioned to become a portal for patients to receive exactly the right kind of care for their health needs. It combines the whole range of healthcare services in one place. People will no longer wait to arrange a doctor’s appointment or pay the bill. They will be able to do all of these actions easily through a smart device.
