From clinicians’ point of view, most elder adults are self-neglecting patients. Even if they show up for a periodic (once per year) “superficial” test, their real situation is not known. Elder adults avoid complaining about health related disturbances, being or afraid that they may be moved to Nursing Homes, or assuming that these disturbances come normally with aging.
In most cases, elder adults, like young people, visit the physician office, when they feel sick. Then it is already too late to take proactive preventive action to avoid the unnecessary frailty symptoms or elderly diseases. Last minute visits, in many cases require severe intervention at a hospital Emergency Room (ER). This is the Traditional Model medicine is practiced today.
PerlisCare ™ Perlis’ main product enables early detection of significant functional degradation, discriminating those significant for elder adults’ professional caregiver from other noisy signals. The report sent to verified caregivers, enables them to call only those (patient), who really need the visit in time for Predictive Care (PPC).
Our system monitors functional activities, also known as Activities of Daily Living (ADL) and our Intelligent Decision Making machine calculates a value for each measured change in activity. If this value is over the predefined threshold, a report is sent to all listed subscribers. In this way security and privacy are respected and enforced. This is graphically represented by a clock type control panel interphase.
