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.

ACCURATE REAL-TIME CLINICAL DOCUMENTATION – SYNCED DIRECTLY TO PCC

Cynthia was a registered nurse. Helping and healing those in distress had been a goal of hers since a young age. Despite all her skills and accomplishments, at times Cynthia felt helpless. While she possessed expertise and experience, she felt as though it was only put to use part of the time. Her patients required an extremely high amount of attention, as did their medical charts. It was important that she document and record things like changes to vital signs, administration of medications, progress notes and much more, which was incredibly time consuming. She often wished she could be doing more while she dejectedly sat entering patient data. 

One day while getting lunch with her friend Thomas, a fellow RN who worked at another facility,Thomas told Cynthia about MyCooey, an end-to-end health monitoring mobile platform that covered everything from nursing to assisted living to post-surgical rehab. He explained how easy it was to track data in real-time. Data could even be logged hand…

DISTILLING CARE FROM IoT & Mobile USING 3X3 THE MICROSOFT & AMAZON WAY!

At 30 years of age, Jeff Bezos saw the internet revolution take place with the web usage growing at 2300% a year. The growth rate of web usage was crazy enough for him to build the right framework for e-commerce; lo and behold Amazon was born.
Today, they are not only among the most influential people but they continue to leave a lasting legacy with their unfaltering persistence to make this world a better place.
Radical change happens when an industry or market segment changes the way it operates.
Chronic disease management or long-term healthcare is one such segment that is going through this phase. No one could effectively solve it till date even though multiple attempts were done by both big and small players.
Long-term healthcare today presents you with myriad of problems t…
