'Right now, after they do the initial diagnosis and prescribe medication, they don't get a lot of data from the patient, so the likelihood that the first time it will work is low, so now they get ongoing data to see if they need to modify treatment. 'That is a game changer for the physician,' explains Mr Kisch. Data gathered by this device is fed into large scale cohort studies, with nine currently running or about to run around the world.
