Care coordination meets sensor technology

Chicago-based Caremerge continues its partnering activity, announcing a partnership with Nashville-based Care Technology Systems. The news comes just two months after it announced a partnership with Lively.

Caremerge, which uses a cloud-based platform and an intuitive interface to enable real-time interactions between care team members, will now be able to integrate data collected from Care Technology Systems' passive sensors that are placed throughout a senior's home to gauge normal life patterns and behavior trends.

In a press release posted on Care Technology Systems' website, Asif Khan, founder and CEO of Caremerge, said, "We are excited to be partnering with Care Technology Systems. 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."

Jim Anderson, founder and president of Care Technology Systems, also noted: "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.”
