HCSI Interview with Scott Roethle of World Global Network Episode: 14

In this episode, Lance King of Healthcare Compliance Solutions, Inc ( interviewed Scott Roethle of World Global Network, distributor of HELO wearable technology, and Medical Director of Lifelog Health.

What Scott Roethle Wishes You Knew About Him
Scott is a private practice anesthesiologist in Kansas City, Kansas.  He is more outgoing and willing to take risks than most people realize.  He says he wishes that most people knew that anesthesiologists don't just “put people to sleep;” they also keep people alive during surgery.  The anesthesiology field is moving towards a peri-operative model, meaning anesthesiologists are now trying to be involved in patient care before, during, and after surgery.  This approach leads to lower recovery times and patients feeling better after surgery.  He's recently gotten frustrated with the healthcare industry because of the sick-care model and has been working to shift the focus to preventative care and wellness.

HELO and World Global Network
Scott and some colleagues were talking about the potential wearables had in the healthcare and wellness industry a little over a year ago.  They all agreed that the current market offerings did not do anything very useful, so they started brainstorming what the perfect wearable device could/would do.  They came up with the HELO device, a wearable health tracking device.
 In the first year, 300,000 HELO devices were sold.  Recently, they upgraded the device in the HELO LX.  This model is able to do the following (the only ambulatory wearable device on the market able to do all of these): monitor heart rate, count steps, measure blood pressure, monitor sleep, read respiration rate, monitor mood and energy level, and conduct a basic ECG test. The HELO LX also has a panic button that users can push to call for emergency response personnel.  Within the next year, the company hopes to release a new model that will also be able to estimate blood glucose levels, blood alcohol, and blood oxygen.
The HELO LX wearable is a product owned by the company World Global Network, which distributes the device through direct sales and online purchasing.  The HELO LX uses BlueTooth technology to upload all the information to LifeLog Health.  Through the app WeCare, family members, healthcare service providers, trainers, wellness coaches and others can access user information.  All of this technology and information-sharing is HIPAA-compliant and secure.  The data is non-identifiable except to the people that the user specifically grants access.  Providers and care-givers with access to the data can continually monitor, periodically download reports, or receive a report directly from the user.  The biggest markets for the device are independent seniors who live alone, employees as part of a corporate wellness program, and people with chronic conditions.  Fitness trainees and commercial drivers are also large potential markets.

Personal Habits To Which Scott Roethle Attributes His Success  
Scott attributes all success in his life to God.  He has been given gifts from God and he uses those gifts to help others.  He says that he is willing to “go the extra mile,” learn more, do more, and learn from failures.  He says that he has faith that God will get him through failures and that in his life, the most growth has come after failures and disasters.

Three Truths to Being Successful and Fulfilled
First, being successful and being fulfilled are two different things and people need to recognize that.  Being successful is externally driven and being fulfilled in internally driven.  Scott likes to focus more on being fulfilled.
Second, raising good kids is key. Teach them to be appreciative and have a good heart.
Third, do as much as possible to help others. It doesn't have to be huge.  Just touching one life is a great place to start.
