LifeAssist Technologies Inc., announced today that they have been selected by the Centre for Aging + Brain Health Innovation (CABHI) to participate in the Industry Innovation Partnership Program (I2P2).
I2P2 seeks to connect companies who have innovative aging and brain health products/services that are at an advanced stage of development, with healthcare institutions who are seeking solutions to challenging issues in aging and brain health.
LifeAssist competed against companies worldwide for the opportunity to showcase its solution within the CABHI’s esteemed and collaborative healthcare environment. The program will provide further validation of LifeAssist’s Circura + Rosie medication management and care coordination platform/device. The focus of the trial is on enhancing medication, and related compliance for homecare clients and long-term residents.
As a successful I2P2 innovator, LifeAssist will be partnering with two noted healthcare providers: Toronto Central Local Health Integration Network and Baycrest Health Sciences for the duration of the program. The team will endeavor to evaluate and validate medication adherence, efficiency, resource utilization and overall senior care participant’s satisfaction and engagement in health management.
“We are very happy to be an I2P2 partner with LifeAssist,” says Anna Ballon, Executive Director, Residential Living and Community Programs, Baycrest. “This I2P2 project will enhance care and connectivity across senior-friendly communities and specialized programs.”
Tim Pauley, Manager, Research & Knowledge Mobilization, Toronto Central Local Health Integration Network, added, “Our focus is assisting people during healthcare transitions and the care coordination that promotes independence. Our clinical trial with LifeAssist’s medication adherence technology and in-home device is a great opportunity to enhance medication compliance in a home setting.”
