The results come from Seniorlink’s VOICE Dementia Care pilot program which uses Vela to enable secure messaging and data sharing between caregivers, care teams and patients.

Home care technology company Seniorlink touted the results of a recent pilot involving dementia patients using the company’s Vela platform, which enables secure messaging and data sharing between care teams and patients or caretakers. When comparing the six months prior to implementation to six months of implementation, the company saw a 51 percent decline in emergency department visits, 18 percent decrease in hospitalizations, a 20 percent drop in caregiver burden and 13 percent increase in caregiver confidence, according to Seniorlink.

“We believe these results really confirm the strong relationship between reducing caregiver burden and increasing activation with improving clinical outcomes,” Jay V. Patel, clinical transformation officer at Seniorlink, said at CHC. “Our pilot shows that ability to connect asynchronously and provide coaching through Vela can be an effective way to build a relationship with caregivers, as well as keeping care teams more closely connected.”
