The VitalAlly platform is a virtual family health collaboration tool helping families care for their most precious relationships.
There is one constant for all living things and that is the surety that we will age. As we age, we lose our ability to manage our health, household and even aspects of our daily regiment. With senior care costs rising and a disproportionate segment of the population entering their sunset years, many of us rely on our families as our primary caretakers. As a consequence, family members often experience significant disruption to their lives, careers, and independence.
VitalAlly enables families and caregivers to collaborate virtually to help patients remain medically compliant and manage diseases so they don’t become life-threatening. The platform consists of a unique suite of virtual collaboration tools for each caregiver's profile (family, paid caregiver, etc.), all designed to collaborate on varying patient needs. Whether it’s sharing a special moment, paying for a caregiver, or reminding the patient to take their medication, VitalAlly replaces numerous texts, emails and phone calls, and handles payments. It provides the ability for everyone to be an active part of the care team while living far away or on the go. This is accomplished through automated daily health reports that are securely transmitted to the family members and outside providers.
VitalAlly comes from a personal story by our CEO and co-founder, Leslie Errington. The process was developed through her family story where her mother managed her diabetes without any issues for twenty-five years until she was diagnosed in 2015 with Alzheimer’s. Six months later, her diabetes became out-of-control, nearing blindness and hospitalization.
Leslie, living hours away, and her sister Lisa, living close by, came together in love and intervened in a way where they worked with her two times a day to help her stay medically compliant. Within six months her A1C levels dropped by four points and she was happier, healthier, and continues to remain independent.
