Digital health company Quil Health is expanding its reach into home health care with a new sensor-based technology platform aimed at aging seniors and their caregivers.
Quil—the healthcare joint venture of telecom giant Comcast NBCUniversal and Independence Health Group—is offering new technology that combines ambient sensors and voice-activated technology in the home to help caregivers monitor patients’ movements, the company announced during the HLTH 2020 virtual conference Monday.
The company launched in 2018 to leverage Comcast’s technology capabilities to provide healthcare guidance through consumer’s laptops, phones and even their TVs. In 2019, Quil Health launched its first product, Quil Engage, a consumer engagement platform that leverages smart devices and motion sensors in the home to help patients safely recovery after surgery.
Quil’s newest platform, called Quil Assure, is the first integrated sensor-based technology platform that connects patients to their clinical team and caregivers from their homes, according to the company. It’s part of Quil’s focus on supporting the aging at home experience for millions of seniors.
The solution combines a smart in-home sensor network that monitors patients’ movement along with integrated emergency assistance and caregiver coordination tools and resources. The aim is to connect caregivers to aging family and friends who want to live independently at home but need support.
