Senscio Systems, Inc. and Full Circle America announced a business partnership to provide a comprehensive, home care management solution for Full Circle America clients living with one or more chronic conditions. The solution is based on Senscio Systems’ Ibis remote health platform that features an easy-to-use touchscreen device for two-way communications between caregiver and patient, and an advanced data-analytics engine that monitors and evaluates patient vitals and behavior in real time to identify potential issues before they turn into medical emergencies.
Full Circle America offers a 24/7 video-based monitoring and emergency support center. By integrating Ibis into Full Circle America's high-touch/high-tech patient support environment, Senscio Systems will help Full Circle America seniors to live more safely and with better health, while significantly reducing their medical costs. The system will provide 24/7 monitoring of client health signs and behavior using a range of passive and active sensors, assist clients to self-manage their conditions, and alert caregivers to intervene should any anomalies be detected.
Dr. Allan ‘Chip’ Teel, President of Full Circle America, said, “”The right care in the right place at the right time’ is not merely a slogan for us, it is a way of life. We are committed to providing our at-home clients the means to improve their health while opening up opportunities to reduce their loneliness through closer involvement with family, friends, community, and personal interests. IbisCare is a Medicare-eligible technology that will give us the ability to connect our clients to their doctors for improved clinical oversight and connect them to their families to reduce their isolation. The end result is more people will be able to stay where they want - in their own home.” Together the technologies and services provided by this partnership meet the requirements of the new Medicare reimbursement for 24/7 oversight of chronic conditions.
According to Dr. Piali De, CEO of Senscio Systems, “The partnership with Full Circle America is an important step in our effort to develop affordable and effective remote health care management technology. It gives us the opportunity to work with Dr. Teel, a visionary and thought leader in the field of compassionate elder care. The partnership will enable us to gain important insights into the technology required to meet the needs of senior citizens living alone at home or with relatives.”
