Care Angel is revolutionizing the way we care for our aging loved ones. Fact is, we all could use help caring for aging loved ones but traditional options are costly, technical & complicated to use and maintain. Introducing, "Angel", every families' virtual caregiving assistant (like Siri-for-Seniors). Angel uses powerful AI & voice-recognition to interface with a simple telephone, so mom doesn't need anything other than any landline or mobile phone to help mom be safe. In less than 2 minutes a day, Angel does check-in calls to your elderly loved ones and has a guided conversation gathering mental, physical & emotional well-being measures that includes medication adherence and overall health vitals status.

"Caring for your aging parents is an emotional undertaking," said Wolf Shlagman, Chief Angel and Founder. "Since losing my father years ago, and now supporting my mom living in another city, I have been working diligently to help caring families have more peace of mind and for seniors to live healthier lives independently at home. Care Angel's high-touch, no tech AI monitoring technology is proven to empower families to reduce stress and lower costs." Care Angel is currently launching in Canada and the United States with major partners to empower millions of families to take better care.

The 4th annual HealthTech Conference

Once again we gathered around 400 of the brightest minds in Healthcare and Technology this week at the two-day event in Santa Clara, CA. Hosted by Anne DeGheest and Carl Bouthillette of HealthTech Capital, the conference focused on how to build sustainable HealthTech businesses and how to move the needle in improving healthcare delivery by bringing together the best minds - providers, payors, technologists, investors and entrepreneurs. Key takeaways from this year's conference include the significance of developing earlier scalable solutions as the payers and providers are consolidating into larger organizations. Another key point was the need for innovator to differentiate between filling the needs for consumers vs. patients: "Consumers make choice and are not defined by their disease. Patients receive care"

A unique aspect of the exploding HealthTech sector is the increased collaboration between hospitals, established industry players and entrepreneurs to improve healthcare delivery models through technology innovation and partnerships. In line with this theme, HealthTech Conference hosted over 100 match making meetings between 46 exhibitors and 24 potential customers or business partners. In addition, our HealthTech Conference Venture Competition focus on discovering innovative companies that leverage technologies to change healthcare delivery, decrease cost and empower patients.

The People's Choice

In the Exhibitor Hall, conference attendees met entrepreneurs and explored the latest HealthTech products and services. All our attendees received a ballot to vote for the most exciting exhibiting company. Most attendees voted, and when the ballots were counted, CareAngel won The People's Choice after a tight race between exhibitors.
