Taking Personalized Senior Care to the Next Level
CHICAGO, Sept. 21, 2017 /PRNewswire/ — An exciting, new partnership between two innovative healthcare companies aims to make care for our nation’s elderly the best possible.
Chicago-based senior living care coordination company, Attuned Care, recently teamed up with CipherHealth to incorporate a revolutionary care management system.
It’s called View. So what does this mean for the future of senior care? More personalized and efficient management of needs of loved ones who face specific challenges in assisted living facilities. The View technology works to track those needs in a more precise and personalized way, facilitating optimal care.
Most people choose to transition from home to a senior living facility due to a major life change or health issue. The goal for seniors and their families when making this decision is to receive compassionate, professional care beyond what was possible at home. Unfortunately, many seniors and families end up feeling frustrated by the disjointed relationship between care providers, healthcare facilities, and senior communities — a lack of coordination that too often results in major care gaps.
And for Attuned Care’s CEO Dr. Benjamin Berk, the problem is personal.
«My grandfather suffered from Parkinson’s disease,» Dr. Berk explains. «After several years, he made the difficult decision to move into an assisted-living community. We had this expectation that a lot of the problems would come to an end, but, like many families, we found this was not the case. There was a huge gap between our expectations and the actual outcomes.»
Thanks to the View platform, Attuned Care is now able to effectively track and manage field teams in order to see where resources are needed most and why. And by centralizing the care management process and creating a network of care teams with common objectives, Attuned Care is significantly improving the quality of care for seniors, reducing avoidable hospital admissions and improving communication among care providers.
CipherHealth’s View technology also meets Attuned Care’s demands for scalable innovation and agile development. This is tech that can grow with the needs of senior-living communities.
«We designed View knowing that this platform would need to grow with the organization,» shares CipherHealth co-founder Zach Silverzweig. «We’re ecstatic about this partnership because care coordination technology like View is helping achieve the seamless care experience that many expect within senior-living communities and, most importantly, improving lives and outcomes for their residents.»
Together, Attuned Care and CipherHealth are providing personalized, cross-provider care solutions through a reliable, centralized management service to create a brighter future for seniors.
