|Description||Home Health Care Monitoring|
eCaring is an easy-to-use, web-based at-home care monitoring and management system that delivers real-time information from the home to care managers, providers, and family members.
eCaring is a unique web-based electronic home care record. It enables home health aides, family members, and patients to easily document significant behaviors, trends, changes, and problems so that providers can identify and respond in real time, preventing avoidable deterioration and hospital readmissions. By generating timely data from a vital new source—the home—eCaring provides a stronger Analytics platform for care management than any other system. eCaring fills a systemic gap in patient-provider communications, raising care coordination to new levels.
eCaring Basic is comprised of four interrelated products: • CareTracker™, an intuitive, culturally competent, icon-based interface that enables home health aides, family members, and patients to enter detailed real-time health information about a patient’s physical and mental state, eating, toileting, vital signs, medication adherence, and other critical information regardless of computer or English literacy • CareJournal™, a comprehensive view of information on all activities, conditions, and mental and physical states entered in CareTracker • CarePortrait™, a customized view of clinically significant data—such as sleeping patterns and medication compliance—over time and in relation to behavior and other potentially significant factors • CareAlerts™ (in development), a customizable email and SMS Alert system triggered by pre-selected criteria such as dangerous fluctuations in vitals, lack of medication compliance, falls, or indications of depression
In compiling and delivering real-time information from the home to care managers, providers, and family members, eCaring can improve the quality and cost-effectiveness of healthcare services, enable collaboration among all parties in the continuum of care, increase case manager productivity, reduce patient, family, and provider stress, and lead to better health outcomes.
