New Internet Service Delivers Relief to Families of Those in Long-Term Care
Date:11/25/2008

COLUMBUS, Ohio and PHOENIX, Nov. 25 /PRNewswire/ -- There is a new Internet service available that changes the communication paradigm in long-term care. Addressing the family's basic need to stay informed, it allows long-term care providers to give them regular proactive wellness updates through a secure web page, by email and text message without families having to call, no matter where they are.

Too much to do and too little time. It's a common problem that takes on special significance for the families of the more than 3.8 million people in the U.S. living in Nursing Homes, Assisted Living Facilities or receiving Home Care as they struggle to stay up-to-date with the well-being and needs of their loved ones.

"As one of the millions of people in the U.S. with family in long-term care," said Neil Moore, founder and chief executive officer of Connect4Healthcare, the company that developed the service, "I was shocked to find that with all of the technology available to us today, the only way we could find out how our loved-ones were doing was to visit or call the care provider. Most of us can't do that as often as we want; our lives are just too hectic."

After spending almost 20 years in the healthcare IT business, Moore knew he could do better. "That's why we created Connect for Healthcare(TM). It's become my personal mission. We (families) want and need the information; care for our loved ones is better when we are better informed, and good care providers want to communicate with us. It helps everybody involved."

The Connect for Healthcare(TM) service was developed by the company with input from families and care providers. "Although our primary objective is to help families and their loved ones," says Moore, "the role of the long-term care provider in our process is critical. Staff time and money continue to be their key challenges. The simplicity of our software and our unique business model address them both."

Today, the company is introducing their service to long-term care providers but plans to begin marketing directly to consumers early next year. "In the meantime," says Moore, "families that want the service should call the care provider and ask for it. Send them to our website or have them contact us. We can have them ready to start sending you updates in less than a day."
