Improving the quality of life for Alzheimer’s and dementia patients is a vitally important concern to families and the healthcare system alike. Healthcare Interactive, a Larta portfolio company in our 2014-2015 NIH CAP is specifically positioning itself as a central player in the area of training of caretakers of patients afflicted with this debilitating condition.
The company has seen a 30% increase in domestic sales, which means more patients and their families may soon feel the positive effects of the startup’s methods. Their novel approach is also catching on globally. They are currently engaged in early-stage talks to expand into China, Hong Kong and Romania.
Cost-effective and available online 24/7, Healthcare Interactive provides institutions and professionals with a certified training program that is flexible and meets the increasing national and state-level requirements. Their signature person-centered CARES Approach proves that identifying and managing the smallest change in the caretaker’s approach can make the biggest difference in how the patient’s situation unfolds, improving care and the quality of life for everyone involved from caretakers to patients and families alike.
Healthcare Interactive’s video-based curriculum includes “before and after” scenarios with real-life Alzheimer’s patients and caretakers, never before filmed, demonstrating specific care techniques.
“For such a small company to establish themselves as the go-to company in the US for Alzheimer’s and dementia care training is truly remarkable,” says Ferey Faridian, the Principal Advisor Healthcare Interactive worked one-on-one with in Larta’s 2014-2015 NIH CAP.
Healthcare Interactive’s products are the only online ones co-developed and co-branded with the national office of the Alzheimer’s Association, and the only dementia-specific online training specifically recommended by the Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services (CMS), the American Healthcare Association (AHCA), the National Center for Assisted Living, and the Joint Commission.
Clearly, we are proud to profile Healthcare Interactive as a “company worth watching!”
