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."

Given the popularity of the containers, further investment in the telco/cable industry is needed to transition existing VM-based solutions to containerized cloud native deployments. The networking architecture of the solution isolates the network traffic into different network planes (e.g., management, control, and media).

IoT solutions exploit operational data generated by Internet-connected smart “things” for the purpose of gaining operational insight and producing “better outcomes” (for example, create new business models, eliminate unscheduled maintenance, etc.).

You know you need the cloud, but you’re hesitant to simply dump everything at Amazon since you know that not all workloads are suitable for cloud. You know that you want the kind of ease of use and scalability that you get with public cloud, but your applications are architected in a way that makes the public cloud a non-starter. You’re looking at private cloud solutions based on hyperconverged infrastructure, but you’re concerned with the limits inherent in those technologies.
It is ironic, but perhaps not unexpected, that many organizations who want the benefits of using an Agile approach to deliver software use a waterfall approach to adopting Agile practices: they form plans, they set milestones, and they measure progress by how many teams they have engaged. Old habits die hard, but like most waterfall software projects, most waterfall-style Agile adoption efforts fail to produce the results desired. The problem is that to get the results they want, they have to ch...

For organizations that have amassed large sums of software complexity, taking a microservices approach is the first step toward DevOps and continuous improvement / development. Integrating system-level analysis with microservices makes it easier to change and add functionality to applications at any time without the increase of risk.
