Care Innovations collects frequent and diverse information from a wide array of sensors and data sources on consumers outside of the clinical setting. The collaboration with OSF will focus on integrating activities of daily living (ADLs) data, such as how often someone gets out of bed in the middle of the night or if someone regularly takes his/her medications, with biometric, clinical data, such as weight, blood pressure, and blood sugar levels, and outcomes data from electronic medical records (EMRs). Care Innovations and OSF intend to bring together these disconnected sources to provide patients, family caregivers, and clinicians a more complete and accurate picture of a patient's health and daily life, as well as effective intervention and care plans. As part of this program Care Innovations will leverage advanced technology solutions to collect, aggregate, and analyze the data.
"Today, most clinicians have a limited or inaccurate view of the daily lives of their patients, which inhibits the advancement of effective, cost-efficient care. Seamless integration of data from the home with research and everyday medical care will help clinicians and other healthcare providers design and implement population health programs that work," said
OSF is committed to transforming healthcare via the education, research, and innovation initiated at Jump. A collaboration with the
"The talent at Care Innovations has demonstrated their expertise collecting data from the home and effectively engaging patients to enhance patient care," said Dr.
Research studies will employ a variety of advanced technologies, including Intel-GE Care Innovations™ QuietCare®, a smart sensor system used to monitor and learn the activities of daily living of the patient being monitored to alert a professional caregiver if any activities are out of the ordinary. Studies will also use the advanced technologies from partnerships forged by Care Innovations, such as Lively and RespondWell. Lively develops activity sensors placed on pillboxes, refrigerators, house keys, and other movable objects to log patients' daily routine in the home. Care Innovations and Jump will aggregate the data collected from Lively sensors to help determine if patients are adhering to the care plans as outlined by their care teams at OSF. If a patient is not adhering to the care plan, an OSF clinician will be alerted so the clinician can contact the patient to conduct an educational health session through Care Innovations' remote care management platform, using that moment as a learning opportunity to positively influence the patient to adhere to the care plan.
"The global demographic 'tsunami' is driving enormous need for home care that cannot be fulfilled with human beings alone," said
The RespondWell Platform is a software application that demonstrates and instructs patients in the correct method of performing a physical therapy exercise or skill prescribed by a clinician. Care Innovations and OSF will work with the RespondWell Platform to develop an overall program that addresses falls risk and prevention to enhance population management. The RespondWell platform is an important part of filling the information flow between the home and clinical settings to improve the management of the risk of falling for these populations. In addition, RespondWell's friendly and engaging patient experience encourages extended use so activity becomes more frequent.
"Given that nearly a third of adults over 65 fall each year, being able to provide these patients and their clinicians with the tools to learn their likelihood of falling can translate to fewer falls related injuries," said
Experts in technology and behavior change, Care Innovations identifies the best methods for health care providers and health plans to capture and integrate real-time data from the home into care delivery. The company's third-generation remote care management solution, Connect RCM, delivers insights for timely intervention and superior patient engagement with patients outside the formal care setting. The Connect RCM application is built with a smart filter and predictive analytics platform that sorts the complex array of aggregated data captured from a wide array of sensors and sources present in the daily lives of consumers.
