CarePredict Announces PinPoint Toolset — Breakthrough Contact Tracing Technology for Senior Living Facilities
Automated contact tracing tools empower senior living facilities, nursing homes, and hospitals to identify, within seconds, all the individuals who have come in contact with an infected person.
CarePredict, the leading AI-Powered Digital Health company for seniors and their caregivers, has announced the immediate availability of the CarePredict PinPoint Toolset that consists of Contact Tracing, Location Tracing, Path Tracing, and Room Traffic tools for Independent Living, Assisted Living, Memory Care, Nursing Home, and Hospital facilities.
It is now well known that older adults who live in senior group living facilities and nursing homes are at higher risk for severe illness from COVID-19. In the United States, over 400 skilled nursing and senior living facilities have already reported residents with COVID-19, and most are now on lockdown to limit and prevent its spread.
Once a suspected carrier has been identified, CarePredict's unique and precise location tracking capabilities allow facilities to know within seconds:
• Contact Tracing: All people the individual had contact with, in the facility—including the time of day, duration, and location.
• Location Tracing: All the places the individual visited in the facility—including the time of day, duration, and location.
• Path Tracing: The exact path taken by the individual through the facility.
• Room Traffic: All people that spent time in the same area where the infected individual had previously spent time.
Armed with this information, facilities can isolate individuals who have been exposed, sanitize specific areas of the facility, and effectively curtail the spread to healthy individuals and save lives.
"Ensuring the health and safety of seniors is at the heart of what we do at CarePredict, and this has never been more relevant than today," says Satish Movva, CEO and founder of CarePredict. "In situations like these where everyday matters, CarePredict's PinPoint toolset can effectively and quickly help stop the spread of the coronavirus in senior living facilities."
"CarePredict has created a tremendous, proactive tool to help us protect our community in these unprecedented times," says Todd Bridgeman, executive director of Grand Retirement Communities. "If we suspect an individual has been infected, we can quickly identify residents and staff who have been exposed and streamline our safety and prevention efforts."
"The ability to understand the activity of our residents and team, in a time where social distancing and understanding movements have become even more critical due to COVID-19, will enable us to react and make real-time decisions for their safety and welfare," says Kimberly Erickson, president and chief operating officer of Lifewell Senior Living. "Kudos to the CarePredict team for responding so quickly to the senior living industry that is serving the highest risk populations, elderly, and health care workers through this global pandemic."
