5.1.3 M2P interactions
In the healthcare solution model, a simple M2P interaction involves the equipment used to monitor John. When John’s glucose is too low or too high, and he begins to show symptoms, his health can be compromised very quickly. Without treatment, he will quickly become unable to treat himself, and will need medical attention immediately. The health monitoring company system sends an alert to John’s devices which he must acknowledge. If John fails to contact the health monitoring company, medical personnel will be dispatched to his location. This M2P interaction helps to prevent John from entering a diabetic coma.
These are some additional examples of where M2P interactions in the healthcare solution model help to improve healthcare for patients:
- The health monitoring company system sends a one-time-use code to a tablet carried by personnel on the mobile patient treatment center so that they can enter John’s house easily when they arrive.
- The health monitoring company collects all of John’s glucose monitor data so that he can see his levels, allowing him to administer the proper amount of insulin.
