Chicago, IL, April 2nd, 2014 – Caremerge LLC, a revolutionary communication and care coordination platform for senior care industry, announced today a new partnership with Care Technology Systems, a Nashville-based company that uses monitoring technology integrated into a senior’s daily life through passive sensors. The sensors are placed throughout a senior’s home to gauge normal life patterns and trends in behavior and an alert is sent to caregivers when there is an issue or threat to the senior’s health or safety.
Data and alerts captured by Care Tech’s sensors will enrich the clinical and social activity data already captured within the Caremerge platform and will offer more objective reporting to the various stakeholders (senior living communities, home healthcare, home care, family members, providers, MCO’s, ACO’s, etc.) responsible for seniors’ health and wellness. For example, by collecting data on the physical movement of seniors along with the ability to determine behavioral trends through the data collected, providers can have a better sense of fall predictors, allowing caregivers to offer timely, effective interventions.
“We are excited to be partnering with Care Technology Systems”, said Asif Khan, Founder and CEO, Caremerge. “By utilizing their data capture and analytics and integrating them into senior living workflows, both companies can provide significant value add to our clients. To begin with, fall prevention analytics will help provide higher quality of life for seniors, and then better decision making for care providers along with peace of mind for the families.”
“Entering into a partnership with an award-winning senior healthcare company like Caremerge, makes sense for us.” said Jim Anderson, President, Care Technology Systems. “This partnership is about providing the caregivers with the best tools and technology possible that generates the most relevant data. This enhances the quality of life for seniors along with much needed sense of relief for their families and caregivers.”
Caremerge forges meaningful connections between providers, families and seniors seeking to improve communication in today’s complex healthcare environment. With a revolutionary, easy-to-use cloud-based coordination platform, Caremerge keeps the entire care team informed and cohesive through an intuitive interface that enables real-time staff interaction, provides families with peace of mind and improves overall senior wellness.
