CarePredict adds Covid-19 contact tracking for senior care facilities

Techstination feature for Wednesday, April 29, 2020

Techstination, your destination for gadgets and gear.   I’m Fred Fishkin.    A company called Care Predict is using a high tech wearable device to be able to monitor the contacts of people in senior care and similar facilities.   That enables faster tracing for exposure to Coronavirus…which has proven to be deadly in many nursing homes and such.     Care Predict Chief Business Officer Jerry Wilmink says with the residents and staff equipped with the wrist worn devices…

“If an individual is, in fact, infected, they can actually go to that individual’s profile in our software and the staff can then identify, for instance,  the resident and then it simply goes through all of the exposures and the interactions the person has made.”

The wearable also monitors health and there is a version for home use as well.   For more, go to www.carepredict.com.
