Get in on the free beta launch of KEAS, a new online service that provides step-by-step Care Plans to help you understand diagnoses and lab results, set health goals, and do what it takes to achieve your goals. I’m excited to be one of the founding experts, providing Care Plans on asthma and ear infections.
Ear infections are the most common acute illness treated by physicians in kids treated by physicians, the most common reason antibiotics are prescribed to kids, and the most common reason for kids to get general anesthesia.
Asthma is the most common chronic illness in kids, and a major cause of missed school.
We designed these free Care Plans to help you minimize symptoms, minimize medications, and prevent future problems. Click here to join for your child’s conditions or here to join for your own wellness goals.
You’ll also be able to ask questions of other KEAS members, offer answers to other parents with questions and add resources to the ever-growing community of people who want to be able to make their own healthcare decisions. And your feedback will help us build the best tool possible to empower people to take control of their health.
In addition to being the Co-Founder of DrGreene.com, I’m the Chief of Future Health at A.D.A.M., Inc., which offers one of the world’s largest continually-enhanced online consumer health information libraries and a host of other products and tools to help people manage their health, including Medzio, a cool iPhone app. As I look at the future, one of the most important trends I see is the emergence of new technologies to help people take charge of their health, and the emergence of new attitudes where professionals and patients view each other as equal colleagues in this venture – each with different perspectives, expertise, and responsibilities. Participatory Medicine is arriving.
