Easy to Set Up, Easy to Use

The set-up process is easy:

1. Agency representative brings the device to patient’s home.

2. Nurse, patient, family and caregiver participate in training with a Care Center program manager.

3. Device is ready to use 24/7.

The device requires no special installation and connects automatically through wireless cellular service. With the push of a button, the patient can be connected to a trained professional.

24/7 Access to Care

With SmartCare, your patient presses a button and immediately connects to a trained professional through a cellular phone line. The call is answered under the name of your agency to provide consistency and avoid confusion for patients and families.

Having patients call SmartCare instead of calling you helps reduce the burden of expensive after-hours call services.
