Care is consistent and high quality as everyone is sharing a single care plan and generating a central history of care and health status.
Communications are efficient and keep family, caregivers, and aides up to date.
Fewer trips to the emergency room because doctors and nurses have care histories that help them work with families to adjust care plans with confidence.
Keeping a parent comfortable, engaged, and out of the hospital can be a huge burden, especially if you are doing it alone. But how to get help? Will my help know and follow the care routine? How can I get a reliable picture of my parent’s well being without being there every day? How can we move quickly and engage doctors and nurses effectively in a crisis?
HandOff is here to address these critical problems for our elderly and the ones who love them.
HandOff is a simple mobile app for recording daily care routines and health status. It enables families and their care teams to manage a single shared care plan and health status history and to view trend and alert information that helps to spot problems before they become serious.

Families face increasing responsibilities for end of life care. This heavy burden on families consumes large and often hidden costs.
HandOff is a record keeping tool to reduce hospital readmission among the elderly due to lack of reliable daily care and health status tracking. HandOff enables family to share real-time care data and histories with each other as well as their clinical care team.
Additionally, access to daily home care records can reduce inefficient and ineffective visits between elderly patients and their doctors and nurses.
HandOff unites spouses, adult children and private-pay aids together into a collaborative, connected, and data-driven team to reduce costs and improve outcomes for patients, families, providers and payers.
HandOff will achieve this through an innovative cloud-based mobile collaboration platform that enables family to share real-time care data and health status with each other as well as their paid help and clinical teams.
