Earlier this month during CES 2012, Independa announced their plans for Health Measures, a platform combining conventional telephony with existing Independa cloud-based services to improve remote care for the elderly.Health Measures allows home-health and home-care professionals, as well as senior-living facilities and family caregivers, to easily record a multitude of crucial biometric data, including weight, blood pressure, glucose level, temperature, pulse and heart rate. Information entered using a wireline or mobile phone is converted to digital form and delivered to Independa’s cloud-based telecare solution. All information collected is merged with other data to provide a complete and perpetual view of a person’s body telemetry and bio-informatics. The information is presented on the Independa Caregiver Web App, which also enables caregivers to create and follow responses to automatic reminders for those being cared for to take their medications, exercise, eat, hydrate and keep medical appointments. Independa plans to make Health Measures available in February after a month of pilot testing.
