WellAWARE Systems, a developer of wellness monitoring solutions for senior care providers, recently announced it has entered into a technology integration collaboration with American Medical Alert Corp. (NASDAQ:AMAC). AMAC provides remote patient monitoring technology and 24/7 healthcare communication services to enhance care, accelerate response time, improve operational effectiveness. WellAWARE and AMAC are delivering an integrated health monitoring solution that incorporates AMAC’s personal emergency response system (PERS) technology with WellAWARE’s sensor-based wellness monitoring solution and is currently pilot testing the integrated solution with its first joint customer, The Evangelical Lutheran Good Samaritan Society (Good Samaritan). If an adverse event occurs, the combined system of devices will activate the PERS for two way voice communication with AMAC’s 24 Hour Medical Response Center to obtain immediate assistance and contact medical and personal responders as needed.
Frederic Siegel, Executive Vice President of AMAC commented, “We are excited to collaborate with WellAWARE to drive innovation and accelerate the adoption of remote patient monitoring technologies that will continue to keep seniors safe and independent at home. WellAWARE has developed break-through sensor monitoring technologies that will enhance our traditional PERS service. The blended solution provides a 24 hour, electronic safety-net for at-risk individuals while keeping caregivers and healthcare providers in close continual contact during potentially life threatening situations.”
“Teaming up with AMAC, a leading provider of PERS technology, is an ideal opportunity to demonstrate the ease of integration with the WellAWARE solution,” said Jeff Noce, CEO of WellAWARE Systems. “By continuing to collaborate with complementary telehealth and healthcare technologies, we enable caregivers to proactively identify and address existing or developing health conditions, as well as emergent situations such as disabling falls.”
