When doctors and nurses are not available most of our health teams become refocused to our families and community. Just like practitioners, these health coordinators- parents, children, aunts & uncles, friends- need tools to help maintain the health of the patient. Monitors in the home, web platforms that collect and organize health data are enhancing the experience of the extended team and improving the health outcomes of the patient.
Sombit Mishra is the Founder and CEO of QMedic, a smart wearable medical alert service that passively monitors physical activity, sleep, and falls in the home, and sends real-time alerts to caregivers to identify abnormal behaviors and early signs of decline. While the technology is designed to change the way we monitor elders and provide elder care, a few clumsy Health 2.0 employees might benefit as well.
