Designed using consumer insights and preferences, the system connects and engages patients, their families and clinicians through an easy to use interface where they can share health data, educational information, and best practices customized to individual situations.

Care Innovations chief executive officer Sean Slovenski said: "Today, much of the care delivered post-discharge in the home is fraught with issues of compliance and medication adherence.

"Care that is facilitated by a family caregiver has proven to be more effective than without a caregiver.

"Studies have shown caregivers can play a vital role in ensuring their loved one’s health improves when moving from the hospital to the home if they have the right information at the right time to help their loved one."

The system is aimed at improving the patient’s health as well as also simplifying the life of a family caregiver, keeping the patient at home where they want to be most.

Via Health Harmony, patients and caregivers can receive interactive, evidence-based educational content and securely send vital signs and other health information to clinicians.
