They say home is where the heart is. It’s also where most seniors want to be. Of the 52 million seniors in the U.S., 76 percent want to live at home for as long as possible.
To help them do that in the safest way possible, mobile tech companies like WellCare Today are rolling out innovative solutions for medication management, remote patient monitoring, and personal emergency response systems.
WellCare Today has built all three into one easily customizable Samsung SmartWatch.
The HealthAssist Watch was designed to alleviate the caregiver’s worries and provide loved ones with the ability to see the senior’s location any time they want, while also allowing physicians to monitor them remotely.
This lifesaver of a watch collects heart rate data every hour and activity levels every day. Patients can simply and easily connect up to Bluetooth-enabled devices so they can collect glucose readings, blood pressure, and weight.
All of this information as well as other relevant information like age, medical conditions, and medications, are analyzed to produce a health outcome and the likelihood of hospital admission.
The system closely monitors all of this information and biometric data and alerts caregivers and physicians about any troubling changes or patterns. Medicare/Medicaid pays physicians monthly who remotely monitor their patients as it reduces hospital admissions.
The HealthAssist features an interface that’s both intuitive and easy to use. This is particularly useful for seniors who aren’t very tech-savvy.
If at any point the wearer is in distress and needs help, they can press the bottom of the watch stem or the 911 icon on the watch face. HealthAssist will dial 911 and alert the family caregiver immediately.
