Recently, Director of Clinical Solutions, Jennifer Bowers presented as the Keynote Speaker at the Innovate Care Virtual Conference.
The conference, October 5th-6th, Innovate Care (IC2020) worked in collaboration with the NS Dept of Seniors, Aging 2.0, Northwood, and other organizations to showcase Nova Scotia as an innovation hub for innovative home & health care, aging, senior, mobility, and independent care solutions.
The focus was independence for those senior citizens requiring care at home, at a home care facility, or within a health care system. Designed as a think tank setting, the conference provided a forum for today’s frontline healthcare providers and technology solution providers along with startups, investors, and major innovators.
“We recognize that our populations are living longer and requiring tools to not only manage their health but share health data with family and caregivers alike,” said Robin Wiener, President Get Real Health. “Our platform is designed with patients and their families in mind as this “sandwich generation” cares for aging parents in addition to their own family.”
The presentation, Importance of Using Flexible Technology in the New Healthcare Landscape,
highlighted the ways in which Get Real Health’s platform is uniquely suited to serving an aging population.
“Using a flexible platform to manage your patients’ care is key to growing with the changing needs of your organization as well as the ever-changing landscape of the healthcare world,” said Bowers.
Attendees got a glimpse into the capabilities of the Get Real Health platform for aging populations and those caring for them. The main take-away centered around the concept of life-long health record controlled by individuals.
“When you offer patients the ability to maintain a life-long health record, they become invested in their well-being,” added Bowers. “The ownership of the data and decision making regarding whom it is shared with is vital as well.”
The presentation included not only Get Real Health’s messaging features but also the newest telehealth capabilities; both vital to empowering elderly patients.
“Providing easy to use, effective tools to senior citizens aligns with our main mission of patient empowerment regardless of computer literacy,” states Wiener. “We strive to create privacy ensured data ecosystem for every family member from the youngest to the oldest.”
