Care3 Launches New Product Features for PACE at North Carolina PACE Association Annual Conference

DURHAM, N.C. – April 12, 2018 — Care3™, the world’s first team collaboration platform for healthcare delivered in the home and community, is announcing new product enhancements for PACE (Programs of All-Inclusive Care for the Elderly). These enhancements give PACE providers greater influence over the care delivered outside of the center by including participant family members directly in care planning and communications through the award-winning Care3 platform.

“By focusing on how IDT members, family caregivers, and participants interact, we have designed new features that combine engagement and care task accountability,” said David S. Williams, CEO and Co-Founder of Care3.  “The result has been 100% participant family and staff collaboration on care delivered outside of PACE centers.”

Care3’s new mobile app features increase accessibility and ease of use while tracking care delivered in the home.

New Mobile App Features

  • Support for Spanish and Chinese languages
  • Improved in-app tutorials that teach caregivers how to use Action Messages to communicate care task completion in one tap
  • Action confirmations to improve adherence to care instructions

Care3’s Action Planning includes members of the participant’s family with the interdisciplinary team for action plan collaboration regardless of setting.

New Action Planning Features

  • Structured Problems and Objectives for increased Action Plan clarity and accountability for IDT and family members
  • Real-time Notifications when Actions are not “done” on time allowing earlier intervention to avoid hospitalizations

Care3 has transformed traditional PACE care planning to Action Planning to improve visibility and accountability of care delivered inside and outside of the PACE Center.  Care3 is dedicated to being the digital innovation partner for PACE. Stay tuned for future product enhancements that advance the mission and growth of PACE.

Care3 to Announce New PACE Features at North Carolina PACE Association Annual Conference

(Los Angeles, CA) – April 4, 2018 – Care3™ (www.care3.co), the world’s first team collaboration platform for healthcare delivered in the home and community, is sponsoring the 2018 North Carolina PACE Association Annual Conference. Care3 has partnered with the North Carolina PACE Association to help deliver innovative technology solutions that give PACE programs visibility and influence over care delivered at home. Care3 will showcase product enhancements and home care engagement data at the NC PACE conference.

“In conversations with NC PACE service providers they’ve told us that lack of insight into care delivered in the home is a clinical and financial risk to their programs,” said Care3 co-founder, William Mintz. “Care3 helps solve this problem by improving family caregiver engagement around care, and providing critical information about that care to the IDT.”

Care3 was recently hailed by AARP and HealthXL as one of three “Digital Health Companies to Watch” in their New Models in Care Report focused on the Aging at Home space. Care3 is currently working with multiple PACE programs to improve care collaboration between IDT staff, family caregivers, and home care providers.

Once the care plan is entered, the system readies the tasks for distribution to the Care3 mobile app. Caregivers can pay a $9.99/month subscription to automatically distribute the care tasks to the Care3 mobile app, track progress with real-time alerts and reminders, and analyze success via daily and weekly progress reports.

Care3™ launches Starter Care Plan feature to help caregivers get into their groove

2-care3-startercareplan(Los Angeles, CA) – July 6, 2016 – Care3™, a leading  developer of mobile health technology, has launched a new feature called Starter Care Plan for all iPhone and iPad app users.  Successful caregiving depends on having the goals set and the tasks laid in a routine that families can follow every single day. Starter Care Plan offers a set of the most common care tasks that family caregivers face when caring for a loved one, thus helping to integrate the tasks into a new caregiving routine.

“At Care3, we call this routine your ‘groove.’ Getting into your caregiving groove means you’ve integrated caregiving into your personal and professional life. When you’re in the groove, you’re efficient, effective, and your stress level is manageable.” explains David Williams, Care3 Co-Founder and CEO.

Starter Care Plan is designed to get family caregivers  into their caregiving groove as quickly as possible. Users first create their Care Team and then are prompted to create the Starter Care Plan. This creates daily and weekly Actions that families share so that no one has to complete all of the care tasks alone, avoiding high stress, missed days of work, and burnout.

Family caregivers can also send Care3 discharge instructions to make them mobile for a nominal fee. Caregivers simply email their paper discharge plans after downloading the FREE mobile app and signing up.
