TORONTO, July 30, 2020 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Highmark Interactive, creators of the world’s first mobile, gamified, FDA cleared neurological assessment tool, is proud to announce its partnership with PointClickCare, the leading cloud-based software vendor for the senior care market. Through this partnership and using PointClickCare’s Marketplace APIs, Highmark Interactive has completed the integration of EQ Vitality with the PointClickCare platform and EQ Vitality is now listed on the PointClickCare Marketplace.
EQ Vitality, a module designed specifically for the senior population, is an engaging mobile technology that utilizes clinically based games to assist in the ongoing assessment of cognitive ability, mental health and balance function in seniors. Residents and patients at senior care facilities can proactively generate vital brain performance data in an easy and enjoyable way, leveraging the integration with PointClickCare’s EHR platform for ongoing data monitoring.
“EQ Vitality helps both seniors and their families understand the aging process in a way not done before,” said Dr. Sanjeev Sharma, CEO and Co-Founder of Highmark Interactive. “The platform provides them both with the comfort of knowing where their brain performance is currently, along with continuing to track it. This enables families to be proactive in understanding any upcoming additional support their elder family members may require; all through quick, fun, medically-backed testing.”
“Having this type of enhanced connection to our parents is especially important now, as we collectively struggle with a virus that makes our seniors especially vulnerable,” said Dr. Sharma. “We are excited to be partnering with a renowned market leader like PointClickCare, as their vast senior care network will enable EQ Vitality to make a meaningful difference in the brain health of seniors.”
EQ Vitality’s neurologic assessments are completed in just minutes, requiring nothing more than a mobile phone or tablet. By using medical-grade tests that have been gamified, seniors can enjoy the easy-to-use interface without experiencing the stressful, tedious nature of traditional medical testing. Caregivers and loved ones can then proactively monitor the ongoing data, which is integrated into PointClickCare’s API in real-time.
“Helping our clients manage and improve patient and resident care is our core focus,” said Chris Beekman, Marketplace director, PointClickCare. “With the help of our Marketplace Partners, like Highmark Interactive, we are continuing to expand our suite of integrated offerings to support that mission.”
