Lancaster-based OneWell, a nationwide home health services provider, is adding a remote care platform to help its clients stay independent and safe in their homes and communities.
SmartCare by OneWell, powered by Artemis Care Inc.’s eCare4You, will provide clients with timely reminders for medicines, social and medical appointments, and activities of daily living, along with daily check-ins in their preferred language.
Those with medical needs can utilize easy-to-use equipment to measure vital signs and submit health assessments via Alexa or smartphones, a release said. Clients may also book Uber rides and schedule in-home assistance through SmartCare.
SmartCare by OneWell uses conversational technology – like Alexa – to ensure participant safety and a regular daily routine. Data is collected via approved medical equipment to produce readings through an easily accessible portal. All information is securely managed in compliance with HIPAA and other requirements.
“We made a promise to build an integrated system to deliver health care efficiently at a lower cost,” said Aytekin Oldaç, president and CEO of OneWell. “SmartCare by OneWell delivers on this promise by providing higher quality care at a lower cost to our clients, allowing them to be safer and healthier in their homes and communities.”
Arun Bantval, founder and president of Artemis Care, a remote care technology company based in Plainsboro, New Jersey, added: “This opportunity to … integrate our technology with OneWell’s superlative services brings the best of all worlds to the participants … . The ability to personalize and customize the solution to individual care needs means that the participants will get the right care they need when they need it.”
