Senscio Systems expands at-home care offering
Chronic care management at-home for Medicare recipients -- Ibis Health Program adds more New England States to its portfolio
Harvard, MA — Today, Senscio Systems (Senscio) announced that its groundbreaking Ibis Health program (Ibis Health) for chronic care management will be available to eligible patients in more New England states. The expansion plan includes Connecticut and Rhode Island, in addition to the existing Ibis Health states, Maine, Massachusetts and New Hampshire.
Senscio Founder and CEO, Piali De said, “We are thrilled to be expanding the Ibis Health program into more deserving homes throughout New England. Our innovative at-home care system is easy to use and empowers older adults to live their best days with less medical interventions.”
Senscio is a digital healthcare company committed to the advancement of care for aging adults. Its Ibis Health offering is a care management program that runs on the AI-powered IbisHub™ platform consisting of a tablet that program members use to receive care plan reminders and track their vital signs, symptoms, and medication adherence.
Ibis Health serves members with conditions such as, COPD, hypertension, diabetes, heart failure, arthritis, kidney disease, high cholesterol, depression, and anxiety. Older adults are disproportionately affected by chronic conditions with nearly 95% having at least one chronic condition, and nearly 80% of having two or more.1 At the same time, Medicare expenditures are expected to grow from approximately $769 Billion in 2020 to $1.5 Trillion in 2031, driven by the aging of the US population and the burden of chronic disease.2
In controlled trials, Ibis Health members have experienced 37 percent fewer hospitalizations over 94 percent of them would recommend the program to others. Senscio partners with an extensive network of healthcare providers, health plans and membership organizations including Prudential, Helper Bees and Aledade. In Massachusetts, the Ibis Health Program is made available to public retirees through formal partnerships with the Mass Retirees, an association that serves more than 52,000 public retirees, as well as, UniCare, a division of Elevance Health.
Mass Retirees CEO Shawn Duhamel: “For retirees managing chronic illnesses less hospital visits and more independence is key to happier retirement days. Ibis Health is a fantastic and easy to use tool to help retirees manage their own health. If we can lower healthcare costs, while helping retirees live healthier lives, then that is a true win-win”.
Daniel McIntyre, retired CEO of Charlotte Hungerford Hospital in Connecticut said, “The Ibis Health program allows patients to be partners in their own care through education, access, ever-present monitoring, coaching as well as applied A.I. technology. At the same time, it lessens the burden on emergency and acute care settings. I am excited that this offering is being expanded to Connecticut and beyond. It is a gamechanger for patients and the entire healthcare system.”
David Potter, a Rhode Island native and former executive in Fortune 200 insurance companies who advises commercial stage healthcare ventures said, “Keeping older adults healthy and at home benefits Life, Health, and Long Term Care insurers who are looking for solutions for their plan beneficiaries that also significantly reduce insurers’ financial liabilities.
