LifePod Solutions, the first proactive-voice caregiving service, has announced that it has won a Best of Show award in Patient-Focused Software at the 2019 Bio-IT World Conference & Expo. LifePod’s development partner, Newton-based Kanda Software, submitted LifePod’s Virtual Caregiver service for consideration to the awards program which recognizes the best of the innovative product solutions for life sciences on display at the annual conference in Boston.
LifePod is the first proactive-voice, AI-powered, Virtual Caregiver developed with a singular goal in mind: to support and improve the quality of life for both caregivers and care recipients throughout their journey together. LifePod’s customizable functionality fits the unique needs of a wide range of caregivers supporting older adults’ aging-in-place as well as those suffering from chronic illnesses or disabilities at home.
The “proactive-voice” service is configured to engage in natural dialogs with the care recipient at specific times of the day. These interactions are easily set up by a family member or professional care provider, in accordance with a designated care plan, using LifePod’s online Caregiver Portal. By speaking proactively to the care recipient, LifePod can help with adherence to health, wellness and engagement activities whether they be taking a medication, eating a nutritious meal, listening to music, or contacting a care provider in an emergency. The resulting independence makes LifePod care recipients happier, healthier and safer in their home while providing invaluable insights and peace of mind to their professional and family caregivers.
“LifePod is honored to be a winner, with Kanda Software, of the Best-in-Show Award for Patient-Focused Software at the Bio-IT World Conference,” said Stuart Patterson, CEO of LifePod Solutions. “Bio-IT World features next-gen technologies that leverage big data and deliver personalized healthcare to those in need, and that’s exactly what we are doing with LifePod’s voice-first Virtual Caregiver — enabling caregivers to monitor and support their loved ones or clients in their homes while simultaneously enabling those in need of care to live happier, healthier and more connected lives.”
