Home Monitoring Solution to Help Keep Older Adults and the Vulnerable Safe During Social Isolation

UK, EU, USA, HK, CN April 16, 2020 – UK predictive care management start up Karantis360 is now offering its innovative at-home monitoring solution at cost price to assist caregivers in keeping older adults and the vulnerable safe during the COVID-19 crisis.

Karantis360 uses sensors to keep a watchful eye on the daily activities of at risk older adults and vulnerable people being cared for in their own home. Running on the IBM Cloud, the solution uses IBM’s AI and advanced analytics to identify and learn an individual’s typical behaviour based on movement, temperature and humidity readings. Through a mobile app, Karantis360 helps to provide reassurance to caregivers and family members who have access to a more complete picture of the wellbeing of the person in care and can be alerted to changes in normal daily routine which could point to a potential problem.

There is now an urgency to ensure older adults and vulnerable individuals, who are impacted by social isolation, can be monitored for indicators of risks to continued health, due to the current threats of exposure to COVID-19. Just as important, is to enable at-risk older adults and vulnerable patients to stay safely in their own homes, or assisted living facilities. This not only helps to free up much-needed hospital beds, but also drastically reduces the risk of cross-infection.

The solution, which is available across Europe, the USA, Hong Kong and China, has already been installed by a number of public-sector and private care providers in the UK including, York City Council and Consultus Care & Nursing. In Italy, care provider Sole Cooperativa is using the Karantis360 solution to monitor the health of individuals living inside one of its social living facilities.

During the COVID-19 pandemic, the solution is being offered to NHS, Local Authority and private care providers at the cost price of £10 per patient per month, for at least 6 months, plus the cost of the smart sensor technology from Pressac. In addition, care providers also have the option of an ‘install now, pay later’ finance agreement with Bluestone Leasing. Other project partners include Arrow Electronics, Tech Data, Softbox and IndividuALLytics.

Karantis360 is part of the IBM public cloud ecosystem, a new initiative to help clients create, modernize and transform mission-critical workloads on the IBM public cloud. The IBM public cloud offers the industry’s most open and secure public cloud for business.

Head of ICT & Digital Services, City of York Council

“Our ability to help reduce some of the impacts of social isolation and to help & support our social care colleagues in these challenging times through our work with Karantis 360 is one of the silver linings that has emerged over the recent weeks, and will help us face the challenge of a significant rise in the discharge process over the coming weeks and months” .

Roberta Massi

Presidente, Sole Cooperativa

“it is extremely reassuring to have access to data which indicates the wellbeing of those in our care.  I am therefore very happy to have a partnership in place with Karantis360, especially during this emergency situation, when it is crucial that we keep our eye on the activities of daily living (ADL) of individuals who live alone”.

Peter Burbidge

Managing Director, Pressac Communications

“Pressac are delighted to support Karantis360 with our hardware development and production expertise. This combination of all party’s smart technology not only reduces pressure on the NHS by keeping people out of hospital today, at this critical time, but supports vulnerable people in their own homes or assisted living facilities in the future – it’s a potential lifesaver.”

Lucy Abbott

Consultant Geriatrician

“in unprecedented times of enforced social isolation, the Karantis360 solution helps people to live more safely at home and provides reassurance for carers and family members”.

Helen Dempster

Founder & Chief Visionary Officer, Karantis360

“In unprecedented times such as these, it’s crucial for us to come together to do what we can to support the national and international efforts to stop the spread of the virus, and ensure that every individual’s health is cared for, no matter the circumstances. Together with our partners, we’re able to offer a solution on a not-for-profit basis that can support the heroic efforts of health workers by enabling vulnerable individuals to stay safely in their own homes. It is especially important that during this period of lockdown, families can be reassured of their ability to remotely monitor for changes  in the wellbeing of their loved ones.”

Professor Nigel Holt

Head of Department (Psychology), University of Aberystwyth

“I’m extremely excited how technology is being used to support the more vulnerable in our society. It’s not just about monitoring – data is the key to successful care and provides a scaffold for families who will be reassured by their knowledge of their loved one’s welfare.”  

Nic Palmarini

Director, National Innovation Centre for Ageing

“Today there are tremendous personal, social, but also financial incentives to keep people in their own homes. Evidence-based data, research and intelligence are more necessary than ever to support the strategic concept of ageing-in-place. Technologies like the one proposed by Karantis360 can help make our homes capable of a dialogue based on data, supporting a more transparent relationship between the different stakeholders across the care ecosystem. They also help increase safety and reduce the cost of care for end users, their families and care providers”.
