BALA CYNWYD, Penn. (May 3, 2022)—Connect America LLC, a provider of connective care technology for seniors and vulnerable populations, has announced the launch of Connect America Home—the next-generation, artificial intelligence-enabled digital health and safety platform that provides secure, nonintrusive, continuous monitoring with emergency and nonemergency support to help aging and vulnerable populations live safely, independently and well at home. This first-of-its-kind solution integrates innovations in personal emergency response services (PERS) and remote patient monitoring (RPM) with a suite of supporting services, including AI-enabled virtual health assistance and social determinants of health (SDoH) support—all in a single platform.
The integrated platform includes robust data and analytics that help understand critical changes in an individual’s health, activity and mobility, enabling more informed clinical decision-making, smarter interventions and fewer adverse events. The result is dramatically better outcomes, lower care costs and extended quality of life. The innovative technology suite is being launched under new brand, Connect America Home (CA Home), underscoring the company’s commitment to transforming the way senior adults and vulnerable populations age in place with its mission to be “How Health and Home Connect.”
CA Home represents a tremendous leap forward to more holistically addressing the complex physical, emotional and social vulnerabilities that make it more difficult for aging seniors to remain independent. CA Home is not only helping to improve access to care and quality of life, but it is also helping payers and providers transition care to lower-cost, at-home settings by providing detailed data and insights that inform smarter decision-making and transform the way care is delivered.
“It is imperative that we pull every lever possible so that everyone—regardless of age, income or ability—has the opportunity to age gracefully in place. Doing this not only benefits at-risk individuals, but also creates tremendous value for the health care system as a whole,” says Janet Dillione, chief executive officer, Connect America. “That is why we accelerated the pace of innovation, leveraging our proven reliability, to build this next-generation platform to improve care delivery in the home and provide peace of mind to seniors, vulnerable populations and their caregivers.”
Through Connect America’s 24/7 concierge call center and services hub, and in conjunction with their care partners, CA Home also helps connect individuals to non-emergency services that can address critical issues such as food insecurity, transportation and social isolation. The solution features voice integration with an in-home virtual health assistant and offers an array of devices from watches and pendants to blood pressure cuffs and pulse oximeters to meet the unique needs of this population, regardless of age, tech-ability or medical acuity.
