Acacia Living enables seniors, their families and friends, and their team of health care professionals to easily connect with each other and to others through an innovative, easy-to-use platform, The Acacia C.A.R.E. Network. Unique to Acacia's solution is a holistic approach that supports physical well being and safety, while also nourishing the connections essential to maintaining mental well-being and healthy engagement.
When there is an event requiring the member to respond, an alert
window pops-up while the tablet plays an audio alert chime. This calls the customer
to the frame so they can respond to the notification. Their response
(or lack of response) is captured and the originator receives a text
or email confirmation.
The Acacia CARE network web application provides the place for clinical, social and family care givers to come together to support the member and each other. The heart of the application is a calendar engine that manages the information and interactions that support the members. This information is bifurcated into two categories, social and protected health information (PHI). The protected health information is stored and managed in a secure manner and shared with members that have permission to view health information.
Members have access to supportive information and services through the Community, Activities, Resources and Education areas in the CARE Network. Patient and member-centric information and support can be shared with care givers and family. These features drive member engagement and keep everyone in the CARE network informed and up-to-date.
The Acacia C.A.R.E. Network is disruptive technology designed to empower people
to change the way they age in America and beyond. When accessing the CARE Network
from the Internet our first step is to engage the aging person with a platform that
supports both the clinical and social dimensions of aging. This information is shared
without the traditional encumbrances of silo-ed healthcare information systems. The
web-based CARE Network can share healthcare information with appropriate providers
without excluding family and friends. This approach allows patients to be supported
throughout the care continuum because the CARE Network maintains communication with
the care team members when the patient discharges from the hospital, recovers in a
skilled facility, receives professional care giving services in their home or recovers
in other supportive environments. Their "Network" stays with them throughout consistently
faciliting interaction between clinicians, other care providers, services and their
social support team.
In the patient's home, Acacia provides support to the senior through an easy-to-use Internet tablet appliance. In default mode the CARE appliance is a networked, electronic picture frame displaying images of family, friends and encouraging messages.
