Thoughts to ponder

Occasionally we find something potentially useful to share with others, especially regarding integrity, transparency, and accountability in the field of services. Health care, elder care, child care, pet care, home maintenance, lawn care, property management. The common theme is that people do things for other people millions of times every day. And today more than ever, we need to share what we learn with each other.

 
     
Tools to help coordinate care for family members

Tools to help coordinate care for family members

Apr 01 2014

Nearly one in every 5 adults in the U.S. now help provide care for someone else with medical, disability, or other long term care challenges. This significant and growing need has prompted new tools to be offered in recent years. I call this market "care coordination". In general, these tools help a team of people (typically family, friends, volunteers and professionals) manage the services that need to be given to the person in need. So for example, tasks such as "prepare meals", "help exercise", "provide physical therapy", and "transport to appointment" might be posted, scheduled, and a person assigned. The tasks can be viewed by authorized individuals, and a mobile phone app may be included to help report task status and track performance. (A great opportunity to merge with TaskAssure capabilities to provide verified task reports.) 

I thought it could be helpful to post my list of care coordination products. Some of these are still in "Coming Soon" mode, but most are available now.

In a future article, I plan to provide a comparison of the care coordination tools that I evaluate and find offer top value.
