Clairvoyant Networks Declared 50 on Fire by Austin Inno for Innovation in Caregiving Technology that Extends Independent Living for Care Recipients
AUSTIN, Texas, Sept. 19, 2018
AUSTIN, Texas, Sept. 19, 2018 /PRNewswire-PRWeb/ -- Clairvoyant Networks, LLC announced today that Austin Inno, a leading online portal covering technology, startups and innovation, has honored the Company and its president and CEO, Stephen Popovich, with the prestigious 50 on Fire™ designation in the Healthcare and Medicine category for its remote monitoring technology for family and professional caregivers.
Austin Inno looked at startups that have had a banner year — people and companies with new funding, recent product launches, hot hires and innovative approaches to solving problems. Clairvoyant's launch of their Theora Care™ line of caregiving solutions in March at the HIMSS 2018 Health IT Conference, coinciding with an AT&T connectivity announcement, a recent Caregiver-Friendly Product Award from Caregiver.com, plus their overall passion for caregiving, all supported Austin Inno's selection of Clairvoyant Networks as a 2018 beneficiary for the 50 on Fire award.
Brent Wistrom, editor and founding staff writer at Austin Inno Beat, explained how 50 on Fire recipients are chosen. "Austin is a hotbed for technology and entrepreneurship. In this competition, we literally review hundreds of applications for individuals and companies who are driving Austin forward before we finally select the 50 on Fire. To be selected means your business stood out amongst a group of very talented visionaries by solving a significant problem that people and/or businesses are facing. This is what makes them leaders and innovators."
The affordable Theora Connect™ wearable for care recipients, coupled with the powerful Theora Link™ smartphone app for caregivers, provides a complete, pre-activated solution to enable care teams to stay connected with care recipients, understanding that family and professional caregivers cannot always be present 100 percent of the time. Theora Care is the first technology to use situational awareness – knowing how, when and where a care recipient may need attention. Situational awareness information provides peace of mind for caregivers, and independence for those aging in place, or with conditions such as Alzheimer's, dementia, Autism, and Parkinson's where additional oversight is needed. Theora Care solutions support a care recipient's desire want to live in their own home longer, pursuing their usual activities but with the added security of knowing their care partners know where they are and have direct communication.
Clairvoyant started shipping product this summer to family and professional caregivers, where the care gap is at critical levels due to the number of Baby Boomers – which includes many healthcare workers – entering retirement age. Popovich, also a named Fellow of Texas A&M University Center for Population Health and Aging (CPHA) comments, "The (Clairvoyant) team and I are thrilled to be a recipient of the Austin Inno 50 on Fire for Healthcare. It's exciting that we can now leverage technology to dramatically improve the lives of busy caregivers, people with long term illnesses, and retirees who want to live independently as long as possible. Remote monitoring provides more flexibility for caregivers, more peace of mind, and can save families thousands of dollars by enabling care recipients to live in their own homes, longer."
Professional home care is also engaging point of care technology to maximize caregiving, and insight provided by Theora Care technology can help home care providers identify opportunities for increased operational efficiencies, so that caregivers can focus on caregiving, and less on administrative tasks. Theora Care solutions are scalable, allowing easier integration with other EHR and telehealth platforms.
The affordably priced Theora Connect pre-activated cellular wearable is only $197, with $29.97 monthly service or less than $1 per day. It can be ordered at http://www.theoracare.com. The Theora Link smartphone app for caregivers can be downloaded free from Google® Play and Apple® App Store.
