CareMeda: Enabling Connected Care through Contactless Automated Monitoring Solutions

Throughout the world, there is considerable attention being given to the unprecedented rate of the aging population and the public health expenditure dedicated to older dependent individuals. While the aging population continues to expand, there is a significant global shortage of trained and qualified personnel to provide care for them. In effect, several government entities are pushing toward the “aging in place” initiative, encouraging seniors to stay at home longer. Nonetheless, without appropriate resources and support available to age in place, the influx of seniors into independent and assisted living facilities continues to increase at an overwhelming rate, thereby burdening already stressed staff and support systems. In addition to staff burnout, the pandemic exposed existing issues with communication between facilities and families. Already strained communication channels became virtually non-existent during the pandemic.



This is where CareMeda steps in. The company delivers comprehensive remote care and wellness management solutions to empower seniors to receive better care and stay connected with their caregivers and families. “We offer an easy-to-use, self-guided application that focuses on providing improved care to seniors, enhanced efficiencies for facilities, and elevated peace of mind for families. Our core philosophy is based on ease-of-use, operational efficiency, and better care,” states Damon Fieldgate, the CEO at CareMeda. “We aim to provide simplified wellness monitoring, as well as improved communication for seniors with their family members and caregivers. Our solution can help improve operational efficiencies and prevent errors that result from overburdened staffing and limited resources,” he adds.

CareMeda’s hardware-agnostic monitoring platform is customized to meet the specific needs of seniors living in assisted, independent, and memory care facilities, as well as those aging in place at home. Remote wellness monitoring is combined with a virtual communication platform to facilitate the easy collection of key vital signs and clinical information and improve communication with caregivers and family members. “Our solution is designed for seniors, making it easy for them to navigate, regardless of their level of experience with technology,” mentions Fieldgate. CareMeda’s application presents important information via readily accessible, user-specific dashboards, which keep caregivers, family members, and seniors connected and informed at all times. CareMeda’s family application allows family members to view important information, get daily updates, communicate with their loved ones, and participate in virtual visits.

The CareMeda platform relieves facilities from the burden of managing multiple devices and applications for properly monitoring residents. The CareMeda application is a comprehensive solution that drives operational efficiencies and improved communication. It can easily integrate with existing systems, thus making all pertinent information available in one easy-to-access application.
Going beyond that, CareMeda has also seen great traction among insurance companies concerning liability management.The application plays a crucial role by offering a detailed log of clinical information and interactions between seniors and caregivers. In the case of a change in a senior’s vital signs, embedded health alerts allow for proactive action from caregivers and providers. With real-time information available on the dashboard, the amount of time staff must spend checking on residents is drastically reduced. For enhancing social wellness, CareMeda also offers pre-built or customizable surveys that can be used as virtual check-in tools or to promote and track social events within the facility. These can be run daily, weekly, or monthly, based on the facility’s preference.



Along with its software solution, CareMeda also offers 24/7 customer and technical support. The company assists every user with onboarding and ongoing assistance and delivers backend support to facilities. Even though CareMeda’s core focus is senior care, its application is dually suited for the healthcare industry and at-home virtual care. “We want to emphasize that our application is not only beneficial to the senior care industry, but it is clinically suited for healthcare and at-home monitoring,” adds Fieldgate.

The company will continue its growth and expand its outreach to senior living facilities and home care organizations throughout the U.S. “We strive to offer peace of mind to seniors and their families, while at the same time improving operational efficiencies for facilities. We all share a common goal: better care, improved communication, and superior quality,” concludes Fieldgate.
