Israel’s Largest Healthcare Monitoring Provider Chooses Essence’s Care@Home[TM] Senior Independence Seamless Home Care Solution
HERZLIYA, Israel, February 24, 2014 /PRNewswire/ –
Essence, the leading provider of M2M connected-living solutions announced an agreement
with Natali Healthcare Solutions, the largest health solutions provider in Israel, for
Essence’s Care@Home[TM] to promote senior independence and provide peace of mind to family
members. Care@Home[TM] is a seamless M2M, cloud-based in-home care solution for the
elderly and chronic disease sufferers.
“We chose Essence’s solution because they have more than 20 years of home monitoring
experience,” says Haim Cohen, VP Business Development of Natali Healthcare Solutions.
“They developed the product hand-in-hand with end-users and healthcare providers, so our
clients are receiving proven technology that encourages the highest quality of life
possible as their health challenges increase.”
The Care@Home[TM] solution consists of mobile and web apps, a control panel, a set of
wireless, easy-to-install devices, and remote management tools for service providers – all
backed by a unique smart algorithm, an analytics engine, and cloud technology. The
self-learning monitoring system collects real-time information on a senior’s daily
activity levels and builds recognition of personal patterns. When those patterns deviate
from the norm, the system alerts both caregivers and family members, allowing them to take
immediate action. The system also monitors fire and water leakage, adding an additional
layer of safety and security.
The product has already demonstrated efficacy in detecting early warning signals for
changes in health conditions, enabling prevention, proactive care, and rapid intervention,
consequently, preventing health deterioration and enabling independent living at home for
seniors and the chronically ill.
“Life expectancy has grown significantly over the past few decades; the elderly
population is expected to reach ~10% of the world population by 2020,” said Dr. Haim Amir,
Chairman and CEO of Essence. “This has a direct impact on people’s quality of life as well
as on health systems worldwide. Naturally, people want to maintain their independence at
home as long as possible, and countries need to ease the burden on the public health
system. We developed this technology to reduce cost and directly address these needs.”
Natali Healthcare Solutions has already begun to deliver the Care@Home[TM] system to
its clients, providing a unique “independent living at home” service.
Essence is a privately held, global company and provider of scalable, end-to-end
connected-living solutions for security, communication, and healthcare service providers.
Over the past 20 years, Essence has built an impressive installed base, with over 10
million products deployed and used by Tier-1 service providers worldwide. Essence is
committed to developing and supporting solutions that both enhance partners’ businesses
and enable people to live fuller, better lives. http://www.essence-grp.com
