Home Health Care Services For Kids
Parents can benefit from getting help at home for their child’s unique needs, such as autism, a disability, or an illness. Physical therapists, occupational therapists, autism services, and speech therapists can play a part in your child’s home health care team.
Children with autism are often more comfortable at home than in group environments, as group environments result in noise and pressure to have social interactions. Learn More

Patient Safety In Health Care: How To Be Involved In Your Care & Treatment Plan
While health care providers aim to help their patients maintain or improve their health, it’s important to always be aware of your treatment plan, medications, and any risks involved. Whether you’re undergoing in-patient care, live in care, or senior care, being an active member of your health care team will ensure your patient safety and overall wellbeing.Learn More

Hearing loss often occurs so slowly that an older adult can have serious hearing problems without realizing it. However, vision problems tend to be noticeable right away. While seniors with vision loss are often aware that they should seek treatment, they may be afraid to seek help because they believe it will interfere with their independence or they’re afraid of the diagnosis.  Learn More

Spotlight on Technology

AI & Pattern Recognition: 
Prevention to Prediction in Healthcare
Panel discussion at the Canadian Embassy in Berlin, Germany

On behalf of our technology solution Health Espresso, our President, Rick Menassa, took part in a Canadian delegation participating in a collaborative initiative on Artificial Intelligence (AI) in Health.

The conference, held in Berlin, was a joint initiative between Canada and Germany, facilitated by the Canadian-German Chamber of Industry and Commerce.
Artificial intelligence is an important component of the Health Espresso platform. Focused on prevention and adherence, Health Espresso uses AI to power functions such as appointment and medication reminders, and the digital tracking of vital signs.

Menassa was invited to speak on Pattern Recognition as a component of preventative care. Drawing from his experience with Health Espresso, he explained how AI can help care providers get ahead of the curve, by moving from prevention to prediction. Learn More
