Family caregivers can use the website to build their care team, create a comprehensive care plan, and communicate for action. This proven three-step approach to caregiving is called The Care3 Way.

“My mother had COPD, heart failure, ulcerative colitis, and was hospitalized 12 times in one year before we developed this approach.” explains Care3 CEO David S.

The new Care3 website is free and walks each caregiver step-by-step along the path of The Care3 Way. 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 also offers paid subscribers 1:1 consulting by a registered nurse to support care plan development and analysis of care plan adherence barriers.

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.

Subtle user interface differences between the iPhone version and the iPad version highlight greater visibility of actions for care-sharing for those with higher amounts of actions to complete. Care3 works with any wifi-enabled system so doesn’t require a cellular phone connection to be used.

Care3™ Raises $500K to Make All Care Instructions Mobile for Patients and Family Caregivers

(Los Angeles, CA) – April 26, 2016 – Care3™, a leading  developer of mobile health technology, has raised $500,000 from a blue chip collection of angel investors to mobilize paper care instructions including those provided at hospital discharge. Care instructions today are typically paper-based, full of clinical jargon and shared only with patients and not family caregivers. These factors make care instructions difficult to maintain, follow, and implement successfully leading to costly hospital readmissions.

“Our founding team and investors have been through the situation of caring for someone discharged from the hospital,” explains Care3 Co-Founder and CEO David Williams, “Distributing these critical care instructions via paper is simply unacceptable in 2016.”

Care3™ plans to work with hospitals, health insurers, and other health entities to digitize and mobilize their care instructions while also making them more consumer friendly. Care3 will deliver each task step-by-step over their HIPAA-compliant care-sharing mobile app.

“I invested in Care3 because the founding team has both personal experience caring for loved ones and decades of highly relevant healthcare industry experience.” explains Jabari Reeves, MD, MBA, a San Francisco-based emergency medicine physician.

Family caregivers can also send Care3 their discharge or other paper-based care instructions to make them mobile for FREE for a limited time. Caregivers simply email their paper discharge plans after signing up for the service.
