There are more than 42 million caregivers in the United States who are tirelessly caring for an aged or disabled loved one. One of the most significant barriers to providing good and efficient care is the poor and confusing communication channels that exist in our current healthcare system. Our platform allows providers, personal caregivers and loved ones to be comprehensively and conveniently involved in the care of those who need their support.
The largest complaint by caregivers is that they are not part of the communication process in healthcare delivery. In order to accomplish their roles effectively, companion caregivers must reduce their time in the work force by at least 20% and often leave employment positions completely. Our goal is to minimize both the time and stress associated with providiing effective care.
The Health- -Communication (HEC) platform has two basic functions:
- We help patients and caregivers communicate with healthcare providers, of all types, on their own time, with no appointments needed, and in a way that is secure and convenient for all.
- We help healthcare providers better manage their patients by providing a forum where members of the healthcare team can engage with patients, their caregivers and their circle of loved ones in a constructive, secure, efficient and effective manner.
HEC is a secure, HIPAA compliant, cloud-based communication, care coordination, care delivery and social networking platform that allows easy, effective, asynchronous interactions among patients, healthcare providers, caregivers and others who are important to the patient.
We seek to disrupt age-old, inefficient and disjointed healthcare communication systems; facilitate care delivery by eliminating wasted time; improve the coordination of care; and reward all those receiving and delivering care with greater value, quality and service.
