STREAMLINE CARE PLANS, IMPROVE FAMILY CONNECTIONS!


A young boy rushes in to see his grandmother, embracing her. The two have an indelible bond, perhaps cultivated by a sort of inheritance of his mother’s deep love for her own mother and maybe something deeper. 

“Oma,” the boy whispers. 

“My darling,” his grandmother replies. 

What gets in the way of family connections like this one? 

Too often it’s complex, cumbersome and downright hard-to-manage care plans, which interrupt everyday moments of connection. According to LeadingAge, the nation’s leading advocacy organization in the aging services industry, a typical care plan[1]can include lab tests and/or dialysis to be completed, coordination of rehabilitation care appointments, diet management, sensory care, assistance with recreational, spiritual and cultural activities, and so much more. With all of those permutations, it’s easy to see how complex it can be to manage a single care plan, let alone dozens or even hundreds depending upon the care setting. 

What that complexity means for individuals like the young boy’s grandmother is frequent interruptions of everyday life, including tender moments. 

Could simplified care plans minimize interruptions and improve family connections? 

Indeed. Simplification of care plans is possible thanks to the suite of technologies available through MyCooey.

One way MyCooey does this is through voice commandtechnology, which allows care providers, families and patients to ask questions and receive answers through a natural dialogue. Plus, MyCooey integrates with Alexato provide critical health reminders such as upcoming appointments and medication timing.  

What’s more, family connections can deepen when the patient and family use the mobile engagement platform. 

In fact, residents and their families can use this tool to:
  • Monitor elder’s or dependent’s health remotely
  • Receive alerts in case of slip, fall, or abnormal health vitals 
  • Manage interventions using checklists
  • Get reminders for appointments, medicines
  • Remotely monitor dependent’s health vitals such as BP, sugar, weight
  • See comprehensive analytics
  • Provide patient education


Certainly, simplified care plans make it easier on residents, families and caregivers to accurately monitor and manage care. More than that, simplification frees up more time for families to truly bond.

HOW HEALTHCARE IS USING AI TODAY?

Ever since John McCarthy coined this idea about 6 decades ago, artificial intelligence (AI) is fast being regarded as the go to technology for augmenting engagement levels at the touch of a button.

Apple Siri, Amazon Alexa, Google Assistant and Microsoft Cortana are just a few examples of voice-powered personal assistants that help you interact with a platform or a device to get your routine tasks done.

From these virtual assistants to self-driving vehicles, AI & machine learning is slowly but steadily making their way into our lives.

WHY AI WILL HAVE PROFOUND IMPACT?

Are you being told that AI is the future? Might be true. But there are innovative start-ups that uses matured AI aspects practically today as well.

All healthcare providers should be getting used to this term now (if they’re not already), because AI will have a profound impact on their business decisions in the days to come.

While it might seem ridiculously simple, you can actually apply this concept or principle in…

TURN YOUR PHONE INTO A PERSONAL SAFETY DEVICE!

What is the best time to prepare for a disaster?
Well, the answer is simple “BEFORE IT TAKES PLACE”!
Anyone who’s been there realizes the benefits of being the most prepared on the block. 
The good news is that you have the solution at your fingertips. One of the things that most of us carry at all times is our phones, so why don’t we make them smarter? 
Your phones can do much more than just checking emails, texting, and taking those selfies. They can be more than useful in an emergency situation as well!


If you watch this video, you will realize that how the solution is implemented in Japan by one of our customers!
It’s a combination of a one-touch SOS device (CallOut) and MyCooey platform.
It’s not that you’ll use it every day. But when you’re caught in a precarious situation, getting a word out could be a lifesaver. 
In an emergency situation, a short press on the CallOut device connects you to a pre-set SOS contact configured in the system, and it’s smart enough to locate you vi…

MyCooey, A CAREGIVER'S SMART COMPANION!

What’s that one thing that would make caregivers’ day more satisfying?

More often than not, the answer to this question would revolve around figuring out ways to make the lives of the ones, who they care for, more comfortable.

According to Bureau of Labor Statistics, caregiver jobs are projected to grow 69% by 2020, much faster than the average job, thanks to the aging of the baby boomers and increase in non-face-to-face services provided by physician or other qualified healthcare provider.


A caregiver is someone who offers enormous social worth by caring for loved ones and unfailingly assumes the responsibility for health or safety of their clients / residents.

And as residents, nothing can be more satisfying than be in a space where their care needs are taken care of without having to ask for it.

To provide good care, caregivers must have a plan to support the needs, preferences, and interests of their residents/clients.

Caregivers have to be there to make sure their clients get up…
