EMA-Care

Affordable and higher quality health care.
There are many challenges associated with care coordination ranging from poor communication to a lack of necessary resources, such as time, knowledge, and money. Breakdowns in the care coordination process can lead to health risks for the care recipient and additional stress for the caregiver.

Our internationally patent pending application provides a more precise analysis of the needs and abilities of an elder in their own environment and a complete tool to plan and track the best care or support plan.

Stakes

There are now more Americans age 65 and older than at any other time in U.S. history. According to a new Census Bureau report, there were 40.3 million people age 65 and older on April 1, 2010, up 5.3 percent from 35 million in 2000 (and just 3.1 million in 1900).

The 65-and-older population jumped 15.1 percent between 2000 and 2010, compared with a 9.7 percent increase for the total U.S. population. People age 65 and older now make up 13 percent of the total population, compared with 12.4 percent in 2000 and 4.1 percent in 1900.

By 2030, there will be about 72.1 million older persons, more than twice their number in 2000.

In the field of care coordination for elders, called case management by the professionals, current technology does not offer real IT applications with diagnostic results from algorithms that score and assist in the interactive analysis of several risk factors.

Therefore there is not a comprehensive view of the patient's condition in their environment to build a real Individual Care and Support Plan including technical help and care with a full coordination between all actors.

Everyone uses their own evaluation tools and their own IT systems which limits the number of people sharing important information. This is essential to better coordinate the actions and to monitor the effectiveness of each care plan.

It is a tool to evaluate the autonomy and independence of elders through 17 daily acts including mood.

Instead of a “checklist” of ADLs and IADLs that are very subjective, this unique (first of its kind, patent-pending) evaluation adds on three additional dimensions to the assessment of each daily act:
  1. Cognitive Ability
  2. Cognitive + Physical Ability
  3. Physical Ability

This gives a more precise evaluation of the needs and abilities of an elder in their regular environment and daily life. This adds an in-depth and multi-layered awareness and understanding to an evaluation that has until now been missing in the current subjective assessment methods.

Objectives

After evaluating each person, the application gives you a visual summary of the “level” of autonomy and independence for each daily act. You can then quickly and literally “see” the abilities and needs for each elder.

After getting all the information, the goal is to improve or maintain each elder’s psychological and physical status and well-being, or make sure to maintain baseline and prevent decline.

The App provides you with what we call an “Individualized Care and Support Plan” (ICSP) for all daily acts. The ICSP is where we add our observations, share our thoughts, and provide care and support solutions to improve the plan.

The goals and objectives focus on making the elder’s life easier, secure, more pleasant, by improving well-being and quality of life, not just quality of care.

The App is an excellent tool for care partner team communications and sharing information between all care partners. The ICSP becomes a “living document” that can be continuously updated, improved and shared in real time.

With the notification center, you can easily send and receive messages between all members of the “care partner team loop,” as well as easily choosing and editing exactly who to include as a recipient of each piece and level of information.

A schedule/calendar is also included so that elders and all care partners are always able to find out and be aware of what is scheduled to happen 24/7. In addition the App can be used as a time sheet for all care givers and partners.

Features

Our research team designed an evaluation table which identifies the abilities and needs for people to be able to remain independent at home - wherever home may be.

This table is really easy to use through its web application so it can be updated and shared by all professional and non-professional care partners, thus ensuring excellent “Case Management for Elders at Home.”

The App considers autonomy in all daily needs at home: Moving in Regular Environment, Moving Outside, Using Daily Objects and Devices, Shopping, Food Preparation and Clean Up, Housekeeping, Laundry, Managing Money, Maintaining Social and Cultural Life, Toileting and Continence, Bathing and Hygiene, Dressing and Undressing, Grooming, Eating and Diet, Following and Managing Health, Medication Management and Taking Medicines, and Mood.

The App houses all important files and information including: Profile, Social Statement, Social Life, Environmental Assessment, Medical Information...

It also includes a journal to report and share all important events, alerts and decisive health parameters.

Offers

For individuals:
  • A monthly subscription fee to access the application (Computer, tablet and smartphone).
