Up until now, an elderly person suffering from a fall or heart attack could use a device around his neck to send for assistance – if he happened to be at home. AT&T* is working to overcome this limitation with a mobile health (mHealth) solution that will automatically connect people in distress to medical assistance, in their home or elsewhere. Equally important, the system should track a person’s location in real time and let neighbors or relatives know when – and where – a loved one has suffered a mishap.
This innovative mobile Personal Emergency Response System (mPERS) solution, being developed in collaboration with Valued Relationships Inc. (VRI) and Numera Libris™, plans to use Machine-to-Machine (M2M) connectivity to link people in distress virtually anywhere, at anytime to a professionally staffed monitoring center. Unlike current monitoring systems, which are often confined to a person’s home and require the individual in distress to manually press a button for assistance, AT&T’s mPERS solution intends to overcome these limitations by automatically triggering a notification to the monitoring center if something happens.
For example: A person wearing a small, portable mobile device suddenly falls. Without that person having to do anything, a sensor within the device alerts the monitoring center. A professional from the call monitoring center would attempt to reach out to the individual through instant two-way wireless voice communication enabled on AT&T’s network. If the center decides further assistance is needed – or isn’t able to get a response from the person – within minutes it would alert emergency services to send an ambulance or other emergency medical personnel, as needed.
Provider/technologist meetups – whether live or virtual – are unlikely to provide a panacea for our nation’s healthcare challenges; however, they could easily spark ideas and establish connections, and lead to new approaches to medically relevant...
