FORT LAUDERDALE, FL–CarePredict, a leading AI-driven digital health company that predicts potential health conditions in seniors by continuously monitoring daily activity and behavior patterns, announced their partnership with CareWorx, a top-50 global managed service provider and market leader in technology solutions for the senior care sector.
Based on the premise that health declines in seniors manifest first as changes in the daily activity patterns, CarePredict uses lightweight sensors and smart wearables to continuously collect rich datasets on the daily activities like eating, drinking, sleeping, walking, toileting, grooming and so on. Machine learning and neural nets are then used to classify these data sets and surface actionable insights on possible health declines like urinary tract infection (UTI), depression, and increased risk of falls, days ahead of clinical diagnosis. CarePredict’s end-to-end solution uses the senior living community’s existing WiFi to collect the activity data and trigger just-in-time alerts autonomously. CarePredict also uses proprietary technology and WiFi to provide two-way voice communication that allows senior residents to communicate directly with the caregiver.
“We are thrilled about our partnership with CareWorx,” said Jerry Wilmink, CBO, CarePredict, “WiFi is ubiquitous, has a broad range, and allows us to gather the massive amounts of kinematics and other sensor data that we need to continuously and remotely observe the evolving health of the senior. Having a robust, enterprise-grade wireless network infrastructure like the one CareWorx provides can make this data collection and delivery seamless and efficient.”
With devices and IT services in over 5,000 facilities across North America, CareWorx provides complete technology solutions for senior care including wireless strategy, implementation and 24×7 support. The CareWorx Technology-as-a-Service offering gives senior care communities greater flexibility in technology planning and dependable WiFi without the need for large up-front costs.
“Solid infrastructure and a reliable network are necessities for today’s senior care communities who want to take advantage of incredible innovation from companies like CarePredict,” said Mark McIntyre, EVP and GM at CareWorx. “We are very happy to be working with an organization like CarePredict that is dedicated to using technology to better the lives and care of seniors.”
