As a Health Professional, you can't work harder, or care more deeply. 

Quickly keep up to date with the world's health-related technology products available and refer clients and patients to what's possible.  First comes your expertise, then your ability to help them know what health tech exists when they aren't with you or need help at home.

 

The Opportunity

As Health professionals, the one shared passion you have is to help people be well.  You spend your life studying, working, and striving for this.

These days, you're under a great deal of pressure. Your time with patients is short, the queues long, and the increasing incidents of chronic disease and an aging population, don't make it any easier.   These include an increase in conditions like dementia, Alzheimer's, Parkinson's, and chronic diseases like heart and diabetes.

You can't work harder, or care more deeply. Something has to change.

More than $US57b was invested by venture capital in new health-related technologies, just last year.  Up 79% from 2021 - aimed at just that. Helping people stay well, be independent, improve their health care and reduce costs.

Doctors, Home Care Providers, and Allied Health specialists have the opportunity to be a guide for people in finding better outcomes through health, home, and assistive technology. It's a chance to help them be inspired, informed, and have choices on their own where you can't be with them. 

Benefits to Clients & Patients:

  • Give them choices back that there's is more they can do

  • Help with related problems such as medication, falls, reminders, keeping in touch

  • Enable them to see what's happening with their own health, improve it, and share it

  • Get help from family, friends, and carers 

  • Increased wellness, independence, and prevention of incidents are possible outcomes

Benefits to Health Professionals
 

  • Quickly be updated and stay informed, for your peers, patients, and personal brand

  • Reduce time and provide more help to people through a resource to refer them, when you might not otherwise be able to help them when they leave

  • Provide new levels of care and value for those you look after

  • Increase your professional development, learning and efficiency or operations (carers at home)

  • Increase visibility to health tech and innovative growth opportunities for your organisation
     

It would have been enough of a driver to do so for patients' physical health prevention and preservation. Health technology can often be helpful in reducing worry, improving mental health, and giving people and their families choices they've never had before.

The Problem

How do we empower health providers, to deliver the best of their expertise, care, and advice - and then tell patients there are options between visits that might be of benefit?

How do we make it as easy as possible, for busy health and home care providers, to check out what's available, so they can form their own views, with this information?

Figuratively, 95% of what happens for your patients and clients, happens at home.  This is where we are motivated to be active, and where we prevent conditions (up to 40% of cancers and 70% of chronic diseases are considered by the World Health Organisation to be preventable).   

At home is where we manage health conditions, take medication (50% don't take it as prescribed), fall (60% over 65's will do this), where cardiac arrests occur (90%), where people wander (70% of dementia suffers and those with memory loss), carers visit and symptoms occur that we will try to capture or remember to share with our health professionals to improve insights and diagnosis.  

We all know health technology exists, but it's hard to know what's possible, to find it across hundreds of sources, to trust what's good, and to weave the technology and human routines together.  

Whether it's a specific set of 'outcome bundles' wrapped in a human experience for your clients; a co-branded site of specific health tech focus products and how to use them; or whether it's helping your team or organisation to understand the health tech landscape or improve your company operations or growth options ... Let's chat.

How Can Technology Help?

Technology can assist with a range of needs and goals.  Such as:

  • Reminders to do what keeps you well. Products like medication, drinking water or visits and appointments.
     

  • Getting help, detecting falls & being found. Products such as watches, sos personal alarms, GPS and geofence location and two-way talk and home sensors.
     

  • Measuring and monitoring health, motivating activity, tracking symptoms, notifications and remote monitoring or sharing with your doctor.  Products that take temperature, ECG, heart rate, breathing and oxygen, track sleep and apnea, blood glucose and stress.
     

  • Daily living at home to check movement, security, visits, smoke, taps, and turn on lights automatically or with just your voice. Products that help you move, dress, and eat. Products like door and window sensors, smoke and CO alarms, smart locks, cameras and smart plugs and appliances.

About helloEd

We're driven by a vision for the world to think differently about what's possible for every one of us, regardless of age or health challenges.

We're a team of health, mental health, and technology specialists who have our own stories. You'll see our story, our why and how, here.   

We are a digital health technology company that uses artificial intelligence to continuously scan the world, find, assess and turn it into 'technology that cares'.  We provide an inspiring marketplace of products, tips, ideas, and inspiration.  Once we've explained what's possible in human terms, here you'll click through to the provider's buy page to get the best and latest price. Here's how we're different.

 

We're independent. You get the best for you, not us.
 

For example, we don't offer any products of our own, nor do we let companies pay to list.  

We bring together products that don't usually exist together. To save you time.

For example, you'll find products for health, home, and assistive help together. We put them into Spotify-like playlists so you can find things you may not have thought about. If you look after someone with memory loss or dementia, you'll find help in one place for communication, reminders, location, monitoring health, safety at home, and products for delight and getting around (like if you're not driving anymore).

We assess what's good. 
 

We use 10+ indicators including brand, reviews, time on the market, approvals, clinical trials, endorsements, the technology used, battery life, and functionality. We don't get it right every time,

We keep it updated.

Because technology changes, across regions, versions, features, and prices.  Companies get bought, merge or cease production.   We  track hundred of sources, review thousands of products, and have around 450 on the marketplace currently.

We make it human and focus on outcomes.

We remove intimation, enabling you to browse, search or see visual stories and collections. The words, pictures, tips, flash-cards are designed to help you think and feel inspired to bring new experiences and routines to life, combined with your family, friends or health professionals.  We call it 'technology that cares'.
