Minneapolis-based Simply Connect has launched an app designed to create efficient and secure ways for care team members to exchange data and coordinate resident care without using a phone or fax machine.

“The power of the care team is maximized … by allowing the core care team to seamlessly exchange real-time information through actionable alerts that will enhance the care of the patient,” Simply Connect CEO Craig Patnode said.

The app allows users to:

Automate event notification to the care team for incidents; changes in well-being to trigger care team action.

Communicate via secure text and video messaging to keep everyone informed and connected.

Access aggregated medical information in a secure personal health record app.

Make appointments, choose new providers and schedule rides to appointments.

Add providers, friends, family and others to the virtual care team.
