Better Outcomes and Peace of Mind
SageMinder© is a preventative tool that prompts loved ones
to follow their medication and health management plan. It tracks
their self-reported responses, and alerts caregivers if and when
they need to intervene. Monitoring and reminder systems, like the
SageMinder©, directly improve health outcomes. SageMinder©
extends benefits to family caregivers, by performing the important,
yet tedious, task of providing reminder calls throughout the day
to a loved one.
Instead of just treating health problems episodically, the SageMinder©
is a proactive system allowing for three levels of intervention:
1) Providing structure for the patient to consistently follow their
home-care regimen, 2) Engage the family caregiver to oversee care
and intervene as necessary, and 3) Escalate to professional care
SMS provides family caregivers a simple and convenient way to set
reminders for a loved one. Reminders can be one-time or recurring.
The reminder messages can provide interactive information and will
automatically deliver the care recipient’s responses to the
caregivers in the manor they select.
For example, a family caregiver can receive regular updates regarding
a loved one on a cell phone or computer at work. This provides peace
of mind and critical information so the caregiver can more effectively
manage caring for an independent loved one with chronic needs.
