WellAWARE partners Philips Lifeline to monitor 700,000 resident seniors in USA

WellAWARE Systems : 27 January, 2011  (Company News)
WellAWARE Systems enters into a co-marketing agreement with Philips Lifeline, which is the leading provider of medical alert services in North America, monitoring more than 700,000 subscribers.
The companies will collaborate to deliver their monitoring solutions into the home for the benefit of resident seniors.

WellAWARE’s monitoring solution is used to analyse resident senior activity trends and physiological information, allowing proactive notification to caregivers of potential, emergent health conditions in an effort to help improve health related outcomes via early intervention.

The Philips Lifeline offering includes the innovative Philips Lifeline with AutoAlert medical alert service. Lifeline with Auto Alert offers an added layer of protection by featuring the only medical alert pendant that can automatically place a call for help if it detects a fall and the user is unable to press the button themselves.

“One of the greatest threats to seniors is falls and associated injuries,” said Rob Goudswaard, Sr, Director of Innovation for Philips Lifeline. “Implementing the Philips Lifeline technology in conjunction with WellAWARE’s monitoring system will help provide a wider safety net, supporting seniors’ desire to live independently.”

“The use of WellAWARE and Philips Lifeline technology offers a robust, resident-centered solution for seniors,” said Jeff Noce, Chief Executive Officer of WellAWARE Systems. “We’re excited to have this opportunity to work with Philips Lifeline. By using both solutions, senior living community operators and home health providers are better able to deliver proactive care to seniors using WellAWARE’s wellness monitoring service, while also being able to respond more quickly and confidently to emergent situations through Philips’ industry-leading Lifeline response solution.”
