Leading digital health company, CarePredict is partnering with Maple Knoll Communities to launch CarePredict’s AI technology to improve preventative care. Their wearable device, Tempo, has been deployed at Maple Knoll Village in Cincinnati, Ohio, as a unified platform.
As a technology-first organization, Maple Knoll believes in the power of innovation and that technology can, and does, make life easier for residents, staff and families,” states Vice President and Chief innovation officer at Maple Knoll Communities, Andy Craig. “Our partnership with CarePredict underscores our commitment to bring the latest in proven innovation to our communities and is a part of our evolving digital strategy to drive proactive care.”
CarePredict’s wearable allows for remote monitoring of various aspects of care and has been issued, so far, to 22 patents. The device reduces hospitalizations and improves outcomes by detecting changes in the activity and behavior of the wearer. According to peer-reviewed studies, Tempo can reduce hospitalizations by 39 percent and falls by 69 percent.
Likewise, CarePredict’s device tracks the wearer’s exact location allowing for highly effective contact tracing. This also will enable caretakers to find residents in need of help quickly. In fact, staff response time improves by 37 percent when the wearable is in use, according to studies.
Beyond health capabilities, Tempo allows residents and staff to communicate via the Call and Chat features. In addition, the device integrates with keyless door entry systems, making life easier for residents.
“Adding new functionality catering to the needs of CCRCs reinforces our mission to improve the quality of life for seniors across all care settings,” CEO and Founder of CarePredict, Satish Movva, said in a press release, “We are thrilled to join Maple Knoll in their quest to empower older adults with technology that fits them.”
Health-related wearables are on the rise. Baymatob is working on a device that can detect when women in labor are at high risk for postpartum hemorrhage. Likewise, tech company H2 is creating an armband that allows users to feel pain and other sensations in the metaverse, which opens the door for further health applications down the line.
