Secora is a secure, passive, and private platform to help gain insights into the care needs of older people as well as a monitoring platform to assess ongoing changes in these needs. The Secora system helps professional and family caregivers provide better care for some of the 12.4M elders who live alone in the United States.
Professional caregivers use Secora to assess the needs of their clients or residents and create care plans based on what is actually happening in the client’s home when caregivers or family members aren’t present. This enables high quality, personalized care plans that are justifiable to the client and their family. Secora can also document changes in care that may be required, as well as caregiver presence. Secora allows professional caregiving organizations to differentiate themselves by providing additional, high quality services without the need to hire more caregivers.
Family caregivers also use Secora to understand the needs of their loved ones. They can also receive real-time alerts to emergent conditions that may require their attention. Secora helps family members to honor the elder’s wishes to remain independent, while providing some insights into their needs and safety and thus more peace of mind.
With a mission to enable the highest level of care for individuals, and through the generous support of the National Institutes of Health (NIH), Secora is beginning to conduct studies on how our systems might be used to improve care for chronic diseases such as Congestive Heart Failure (CHF) and Chronic Obstructive Pulmonary Disease (COPD).
Secora is located in the Boston area and all products are designed and built in Massachusetts.
