When doctors and nurses are not available most of our health teams become refocused to our families and community. Just like practitioners, these health coordinators- parents, children, aunts & uncles, friends- need tools to help maintain the health of the patient. Monitors in the home, web platforms that collect and organize health data are enhancing the experience of the extended team and improving the health outcomes of the patient.
David Glickman’s co-founded a number of companies that help people including FairAir (transferable airline tickets) and CHALK (jobs for at-risk youth) and his most recent endeavor, Lively, is no different. With their in-home sensors, Lively gives the elderly freedom to live independently and their families peace of mind by tracking things like movement and medication adherence, while also giving them a refreshing and easy way to stay in touch.
