It takes a village
Today in the United States, there are more than 45 million seniors over the age of 65. The vast majority of them want to remain in their homes as they age in place. For many seniors, this independence can unfortunately lead to more isolation and physical risk, particularly when mobility and wellness decline.
We've all seen the commercials that play on these fears: "I've fallen and can't get up." This is the fear that mom or dad will fall and no one will be around to help. Today's solutions for this fear are reactive. There's a panic button for after mom falls, or a trip to the emergency room because dad had forgotten his medications, or a decline in mental health as a result of loneliness and isolation. This is not what we'd call "aging well."
Motum was founded on the principles of aging well. Trading on knowledge rather than fear, we believe in the powers of foresight and human connectedness. Using seamless, virtually transparent technologies, we are focused on solutions that allow seniors to remain independent, while at the same time equipping them and their caregivers with the tools for proactive engagement and intervention when their health and wellness are at risk.
The cornerstone of aging well is the ability to maintain independence. Independence relies on five essential conditions: feeling safe and secure, staying socially engaged, managing health and wellness, achieving restorative sleep, and retaining healthy mobility.
These conditions are not binary states. They are complex, dynamic, and vary by individual. For seniors and their caregivers, the ability to identify and manage trends among these conditions provides proactive opportunities for coaching, reinforcement, alerts and interventions.
Leveraging the power of machine learning across a broad spectrum of objective and subjective information, Motum provides unique insights that allow seniors and their caregivers to stay informed and in touch, and engage together proactively.
Activity and Ability
A key measure of a senior's ability to remain independent is their ability to successfully perform basic Activities of Daily Living (ADLs) and more complex Instrumental Activities of Daily Living (IDLs). The basic ADLs include eating, bathing, grooming and mobility. IDLs are more involved tasks that include shopping, transportation, meal preparation and medication management.
Motum collects subjective and objective information to provide timely insights, notifications and trends from among these activities. Data points include:
Mobility: Activity, Gait Quality, Fall Risk
Eating: Nutrition, Hydration
Sleep: Quality, Duration
Objective Measures such a glucose, weight and blood pressure
Subjective Questionnaires such as pain, mood and energy level
Care Givers Often Need an Assistant
Today’s Care Management solutions are largely reactive, lack useful insights and require caregivers to pull limited information from a variety of systems and services in order to remain informed. All to often, seniors fail to Age Well due to issues which could have been avoided.
Motum’s Care Management solutions equip seniors and their caregivers to proactively engage and intervene when their health and wellness are at risk. We do this via an intelligent virtual care assistant, Alice, that supports and extends existing care models.
Leveraging passive monitoring, predictive models, and proactive notifications, we extend traditional remote monitoring to also include sleep and mobility for expanded analytics-based care assistance for both professional and non-professional caregivers.
Always analyzing, learning & engaged
Motum's solutions harnesses the power of machine intelligence to acquire, interpret and enable proactive care. Our solution has been designed for easy integration with existing care management and remote patient monitoring solutions, and is easily able to ingest information from a broad variety of data sources.
Our Care Management Assistant, Alice, serves up proactive notifications, risk alerts and information for informed action, whether you are a caregiver or patient managing a chronic condition.
