5.1.4 P2P interactions

These are some of the P2P interactions that take place in the healthcare solution model:

  • Patient to health monitoring company personnel – When alerted, John must call and speak with a healthcare worker at the health monitoring company. Without this important P2P step, emergency personnel will be dispatched to treat John immediately.
  • Patient to mobile patient treatment center personnel – When emergency personnel arrive, they will administer medical attention to restore John’s glucose levels to normal. This critical P2P interaction could save John’s life.
  • Doctor to patient – John must consult with his doctor on a regular basis to ensure that he is following directions to maintain a healthy lifestyle. His doctor may decide to adjust John’s treatment strategy based on this P2P interaction.
