Care for Your Loved Ones with a Peace of Mind: SeniorConnect at Your Service

Imagine this: you’re busy at work, but you worry about your parents or grandparents’ health, especially when you’re not home. What if there was a way to keep an eye on them, even from a distance?

Well, Subang Jaya Medical Centre (SJMC) has a solution: SeniorConnect – a remote monitoring service that lets doctors monitor your loved ones right in their own homes.

Here's how it works:

  • Doctor Knows Best: First, a doctor checks your parent to see if SeniorConnect is a good fit. Your parent’s remote monitoring plan is customised based on their individual health conditions.
  • Gear Up: They’ll receive a remote monitoring kit to measure vital signs daily like blood pressure, temperature, heart rate, blood oxygen saturation, and blood sugar. All devices are medical-grade and approved and certified by the Medical Device Authority (MDA).
  • Daily Check-In: Every day, healthcare professionals in the TeleConnect team keeps an eye on all the readings. If something seems off, the team reaches out to you or your family member and will advise if you need to take your parent to the hospital.

Pretty neat, right? Here's why SeniorConnect is a game-changer:

  • Peace of Mind: You can relax knowing a doctor is looking out for your parent, even when you can't be there.
  • Freedom at Home: Your parent can stay comfortable in their own home, instead of being in a hospital.
  • Early Warning System: Catching health problems early can make a big difference.
  • Collaborative Effort: Doctors can work with families to keep everyone on the same page about your parent's health.

SeniorConnect is like having a hospital at home, all thanks to modern technology.

 SJMC Consultant Physician and Nephrologist, Dr Kenneth Lai shares that the system is like having a doctor right in your home.

Patients have seen great results with SeniorConnect

One patient with high blood pressure finally got her numbers under control thanks to remote monitoring and medication adjustments. Having taken various blood pressure medications with no improvement, she chose to stop taking medication altogether, causing her kidney function to deteriorate.

Enter Dr Kenneth Lai, Consultant Physician and Nephrologist at SJMC, who started monitoring her blood pressure through SeniorConnect, allowing him to adjust her medication dosage promptly. Her kidney function returned to normal levels, and she gained confidence in managing her blood pressure. She no longer needs SeniorConnect today, which shows that with technology, you’re in the driver's seat when it comes to your well-being.

“Forget constant hospital visits! These remote monitoring systems are like having a doctor right in your home, where doctors can keep an eye on patients’ health 24/7,” shares Dr Lai.

“Early detection is key. This system lets doctors catch any changes in a patient's health quickly. They can then reach out to patients or caregivers and take action to prevent small problems from becoming big ones. This is especially helpful for families – children can help keep an eye on their parents at home, giving them more freedom while the medical team stays in the loop. It's a win-win for everyone's health.”

Do You Know? 66% of Malaysians Prefer to Retire in Their Own Homes

“Although many people hope to stay in their homes for their twilight years, they still believe that they need to go to the hospital to get better medical care. We hope to change this pattern by shifting the perspective from patients to people, from healthcare to health, and from hospital to home,” said Bryan Lin, SJMC CEO.

“Imagine having hospital-level medical services with you at every corner of your home, no matter where you are, allowing you to receive treatment and care comfortably and conveniently. In concept, SeniorConnect can be a hospital that transcends all physical boundaries and borders.”

Guess what? A University of Malaya survey found that over two-thirds (66%) of people would rather stay put than move for retirement. Only about a fifth (22%) were up for a change. The rest weren't sure yet. Looks like home is where the heart wants to retire for most people.

SeniorConnect brings healthcare right to your doorstep. It is not just for hospital patients anymore. It’s for everyone who wants to stay healthy, not just get treated when they’re sick. Think of it as bringing the doctor's office straight to your home, but focused on keeping you healthy and happy, all from the comfort of home.
