Symptomatic Alleviation

Innovations relieve both expected and unexpected consequences of illness

Implications - While short and long-term illnesses often come with expected consequences such as grief and lifestyle interruptions, initiatives in the medical field are focusing on alleviating some of the less anticipated consequences of being hospitalized – focusing on enhanced accessibility, emphasizing routine, and predictive care. This comes as hospitals and researchers in this field aim to prioritize an all-encompassing approach to healthcare – in the hopes that in the long-term it will ease the burden on both patient and provider.
