The key role of Caregivers and Family Caregivers

A lot of studies have shown that patients achieve better health outcomes when they communicate with their doctors and caregivers. Also, when they may participate in their treatment, communicating about their health, mood, and other activities.

Caregivers and family caregivers play a key role in patients’ engagement, treatments, as well as care coordination. Because they influence the patient’s health. Involve caregivers, and getting their feedback incorporated into patients’ health data, should be paramount.

In 2014, the AARP estimated that in 2020, will be 45 million family caregivers for 117 million patients. This is why they are most of the time overwhelmed with the work of caring for patients.

Healthcare technological solutions must show good results in the coordination of all caregivers’ activities. They need to provide timely tasks availability and set up status for them while reducing the overwhelmed work. Communication with primary care providers and other care teams needs to be easy.

Emergency response, wearables, and other wireless medical devices without an intelligence may cause false alarms that caregivers must cope with. Analytical and intelligent technology has to help to manage those devices and provide several response cases. In which caregivers should act and communicate with Home Health Agencies, primary care providers, and all other healthcare stakeholders. All of this, in a timely manner, sharing thoughts and concerns about the course of patients’ treatments.
