Payor and provider organizations identify and enroll consented individuals with specific risks that, if proactively managed, can lead to improved experiences, better health outcomes, and reduced cost. Examples include monitoring for improper inhaler use or noncompliance with medications for people living with asthma, elevated heart rate or fluid retention for individuals with congestive heart failure, increased risk for falls for elderly or frail individuals.
We developed Project Safe@Home in response to the COVID-19 crisis, and in a manner that applies to many public health emergencies. This turnkey solution enables continuous vital signs monitoring for infected individuals while they self-isolate where they live or in quarantine settings, It warns healthy people in front-line settings – armed forces personnel, first responders, clinicians, hotel and restaurant staff, and countless others – of possible exposure or infection so they quickly self-isolate before infecting others and get the care they need. The solution enables people to more safely return to work, and when integrated with contract tracing and antibody testing systems, becomes a key part of a community’s public health response strategy.
More active health monitoring with a focus on reducing avoidable and unnecessary admissions, especially those that can be prevented by predicting falls or other acute episodes.
Patients, payers, and hospitals benefit from reductions in unnecessary length of stay, through reduced risk of complications, costs, and inconvenience. Advanced monitoring can increase safety of earlier hospital discharge and reassure the patient, family, and the health team that life signals are stable.
Patients readmitted to hospitals incur further risk, expense, and inconvenience. In-home monitoring can detect early or subtle changes in their status and allow healthcare providers to intervene prior to a potentially avoidable readmission.
Cherish Harmony is a data management platform that securely aggregates, analyzes, and activates permissioned life signals about individuals from all sorts of sources — from electronic health records to consumer and medical devices to social platforms — to improve people’s lives and proactively enable their care where they live, work, and play.
Cherish Harmony is a secure cloud or privately hosted infrastructure that assembles permissioned longitudinal data — life signals — about individuals from an ever-increasing array of sources. These range from electronic health records to consumer and medical devices to social platforms.
Cherish Harmony harmonizes often inconsistent data across all of these sources. It makes such data available for visualization, high-performance business analytics and machine learning, including at the edge. It activates this data via evidence-based guidelines, care pathways, and highly personalized recommendations. It integrates deeply into routine payor and provider workflows, often within their preferred tools. It does all this within the context of permissioning — highly granular consent, always under individual control. And as a standards-based and open platform, Harmony exposes all of these capabilities via APIs for Cherish and validated third parties.
