Caremerge and Lively Announce Partnership to Improve Senior Care

Health Tech Coming Together to Combine Daily Activity Monitoring with Clinical Data and Social Behavior to Catch Early Health Decline, and Share Real-time Information with Families & Providers

CHICAGO, Feb. 6, 2014 /PRNewswire/ -- Caremerge LLC, a revolutionary communication and care coordination platform for senior care providers, announced today a new partnership with Lively, which offers activity-sharing products that help older adults live independently longer. Lively uses passive sensors applied to everyday household objects to measure daily activity levels and automatically notify family members, or other designated caregivers, when anything may be amiss. Under the terms of the partnership, activity data derived from Lively sensors will be combined with the clinical and social activity captured within Caremerge's platform to correlate any physical health decline or frailty risks for caregiver intervention, improving care delivery and lowering hospital admissions.

The timely data will be available to stakeholders responsible for seniors' health and wellness, including senior living communities, home healthcare, home care, family members, providers, managed and accountable care organizations, and more. For example, when medication is prescribed for a senior and managed via Caremerge, the Lively sensors will detect any changes in the older adult's routine and correlate it with activities being tracked in Caremerge, resulting in actionable information that effectively complies with care directives.

"We are thrilled to be partnering with an innovative company such as Lively," said Asif Khan, founder and CEO, Caremerge. "The addition of the Lively's sensor technology to the existing Caremerge care coordination and communication platform continues to allow us to provide a higher quality of life for seniors at home or in a senior living community, better decision making for care providers, and peace of mind for the families."   

"We all know that knowledge is power and when it comes to health, the more timely information you have, the more informed the decisions and a better experience for everyone involved" said Iggy Fanlo, co-founder and CEO, Lively.  "This partnership is about creating technology solutions that enable us to provide the best care possible for our aging population and allowing family members to participate in their loved one's care with real-time information. At the same time, this will allow us to continue to provide independence for older adults and a complete picture delivering peace of mind for care providers."

The Internet of Things (IoT), in all its myriad manifestations, has great potential. Much of that potential comes from the evolving data management and analytic (DMA) technologies and processes that allow us to gain insight from all of the IoT data that can be generated and gathered. This potential may never be met as those data sets are tied to specific industry verticals and single markets, with no clear way to use IoT data and sensor analytics to fulfill the hype being given the IoT today.
More and more brands have jumped on the IoT bandwagon. We have an excess of wearables – activity trackers, smartwatches, smart glasses and sneakers, and more that track seemingly endless datapoints. However, most consumers have no idea what “IoT” means. Creating more wearables that track data shouldn't be the aim of brands; delivering meaningful, tangible relevance to their users should be. We're in a period in which the IoT pendulum is still swinging. Initially, it swung toward "smart for smar...
