Ankota Launches Real-Time Family Communication Tool Tracking Health of Loved One
Date:5/27/2010

BALTIMORE, May 27 /PRNewswire/ -- Ankota, Inc., a Healthcare SaaS company, has launched Family Connect, an innovative software product that enables healthcare professionals and homecare agencies to provide real-time information to family members about their loved ones' health and well-being.  Taking as little as 3 minutes a week per patient, an agency can provide critical information directly to families - monitoring data such as activity level, state of mental health, daily routines, exercise, overall energy, eating habits and week-to-week changes.  Secured updates are sent via e-mail or text, to all authorized family members at once, whether they live close-by or across the country.  Family Connect includes the Quick Connect feature for instant, urgent family updates at any time.

According to Will Hicklen, Ankota CEO and co-founder, Family Connect offers families much needed peace of mind.  "When patients receive at-home care, it is often challenging for family members to track the progress of their loved one in a meaningful way. What Family Connect really does is help relieve the anxiety and pressure from family members. They are receiving information about their loved one which can help them make more informed healthcare decisions," said Hicklen.  

Key features of Family Connect - it is instant and simultaneous.  It is challenging for healthcare professionals to keep family members abreast of health updates on their loved ones when schedules demand visits to other patients and tasks requiring immediate attention.  Family Connect affords home healthcare professionals the ability to reach out to multiple family members in real-time alleviating missed phone calls.  In addition, healthcare professionals are able to view feedback or questions posed by family members and reply to them right away.  

Added Hicklen, "We are the first healthcare IT company to offer this vital service to our homecare clients and we know Family Connect will make a difference in the services they provide to patients and families."  Family Connect Video Link
