FocusCura, the Netherlands-based provider of innovative services for the IoT healthcare sector, is adding Essence’s Care@Home PERS+ and Care@Home Pro solutions to its offerings. FocusCura plans to market them in the Netherlands, Belgium, and other EU markets.

“Essence’s Care@Home PERS+ and Care@Home Pro solutions perfectly complement our products, enhancing our line of healthcare innovations,” said FocusCura CEO Dr. Daan Dohmen, “We are launching these services under the banner of cAlarm, integrated into our own FocusCura UI and data infrastructure. The services will be available to all our FocusCura homecare, hospital and insurer partners as of the end of 2017.”

Essence’s Care@Home PERS+, a Social Alarm system, and Care@Home Pro, a self-learning solution based on behavioral pattern analysis providing full monitoring and notifications, are natural additions to the FocusCura suite of home monitoring, video care, medication support, home access, and health alarm products.

These Aging-in-Place telecare services from Essence offer a seamless monitoring experience that allows seniors and special needs populations to maintain their independence. FocusCura will offer the services as “cAlarm Home” and “cAlarm Sense.”

Care@Home Pro learns a person’s specific lifestyle patterns and sends alerts to family members, healthcare professionals, and/or monitoring centres when the patterns change, indicating a change in the resident’s well-being. Care@Home PERS+ is an enhanced Social Alarm designed to bring innovative solutions for seniors who wish to live independently at home, giving them extra confidence with its advanced emergency alerting capabilities.

The Essence Cloud Services Platform for Service Providers supports all Essence solutions, both for inside the home and outdoor applications. It’s a powerful backend IT solution that features hosting, data analytics, multi-level support, and full customisation, fully leveraging the power of digital communication.

The system eases integration with FocusCura’s existing systems and provides them the big data analytics that will help them better understand their customers to target specific services to expand their market share.

“FocusCura’s and Essence’s visions are perfectly aligned in providing safety and monitoring solutions to ensure independent lifestyles and continuity through ongoing life events,” said Dr. Haim Amir, Essence CEO and founder. “Our partnership will bolster FocusCura’s product line and continue both our expansions.”
