117 million people in the US had one or more chronic health conditions and one of four adults had two or more chronic health conditions.
About 56.7 million people – 19 percent of the US population had a disability in 2011. The socio-economic consequences of this situation make disease management a major challenge for the 21st century. Disease management will be increasingly digital but cannot be just digital. We must combine the potential of e-health with the essential human side to make sense of care and life. Whether you are a professional caregiver, a family caregiver, a nurse, or physician, helping and caring requires human skills which guide, direct, secures and compensates the burden of disease and disability. The transmission of these skills and attitudes is a human challenge where “LVHS” is technologically engaged and humanly interested.
StakesLiving with a disability or a chronic disease is affecting more and more individuals for greater periods of time than in the past.
People with chronic diseases or disabilities want to be involved in the management of their ailments, seeking the best solutions for their individual situations.
Family, relatives, caregivers and health care providers involved in everyday life should have the opportunity to know and understand the disease, medications and their effects as well as all means and technology required to compensate and provide the best technical assistance and solutions that preserve the quality of life and life projects, despite these diseases and disabilities.
Training, assistance and monitoring solutions via the new digital technologies are a huge help in providing people better living with their chronic disease or disability.
MarketThere are many disease management markets.
These markets are related to all chronic disease with their specific needs in monitoring and support via the new technologies and associated services.

Their intended use, more and more is for caregivers, community or volunteers for their training in best practices and understanding of the disease.
They accomplish this by gathering all forms of medical institution and support services, patient associations, mutual help groups and individuals affected by various pathological conditions and/or disabilities.
