Technological innovations in home care

The field of home care, like many other industries, has benefitted significantly from the development of new technology in recent years. With an aging population, technological innovations have helped people receive better and more efficient services.

Below is a list of 3 technological innovations that have improved home care.

1. Telehealth. Delivering health-related services without the need for in-person visits has allowed many people to receive services who would otherwise not be able to. Telehealth also offers access to specialists with shorter wait times to book an appointment.

2. Wearable health devices. These can track many features such as heart rate, activity levels, and sleep patterns. They can sometimes also be used to alert caregivers of things such as falls. If interested, Boom Health offers medical alert devices so you can get emergency assistance for you or your loved one.

3. Medication management apps. Managing medication is extremely important, especially for seniors who are forgetful or have complex medication schedules. In addition to providing daily reminders, some apps allow you to directly order refills so you can keep track of all your prescriptions in one place.

The Boom Health app allows users to book registered nurses, personal support workers, and personal care services, schedule transportation, order prepared meals, rent or purchase medical equipment, and get emergency assistance. Download the app from the App Store or Google Play Store.
