MESA, Ariz.--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Iveda® (NASDAQ:IVDA), the global solution for cloud-based AI, announced today that Movement Interactive, powered by Iveda, has delivered on a $200,000 contract with Waymark Gardens, effectively supporting hundreds of residents aging in place with AI and IoT-enabled telehealth and fall detection technology. By delivering IvedaAI™ appliance hardware and software as well as 150 HIPAA-compliant IvedaCare kits, outfitted with IvedaAI and Iveda’s proprietary IoT-enabled sensors and devices, the contract will support the ongoing care and safety of patients residing within Waymark Gardens’ facilities. This sale and installation of IvedaCare is on the heels of an eight-year Veteran Affairs contract worth $1.032 billion––this win will showcase Iveda and the IvedaCare product as a viable solution for roughly 4,000 additional care facilities across the country covered by the Veteran Affairs contract.
“As IvedaCare continues to expand into homes, hospitals, and care facilities across the U.S.––taking patient care to the next level through AI assistance––we believe that Waymark Gardens’ deployment will act as a blueprint for assisted care establishments countrywide,” said Iveda CEO and founder, David Ly.
Iveda CFO, Bob Brilon added, “We delivered the product to Waymark Gardens on behalf of Movement Interactive during our third quarter this year and look forward to working with additional Waymark Garden Facilities, supported by Movement Interactive, as well as the potential for the 4,000 additional care facilities across the country covered by the Veteran Affairs contract.”
According to KFF, 81% of nursing homes nationwide need to hire additional staff to meet Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services (CMS) standards. IvedaCare’s patented AI-driven, predictive software learns users’ lifestyle preferences and patterns to make informed decisions around health and security, acting as a critical force multiplier for short-handed care providers. By providing real-time awareness of patient abnormalities and allowing for more effective care and patient monitoring, the technology effectively reduces false alarms. Additionally, IvedaCare’s easy-to-use system provides unparalleled peace of mind to residents’ family and loved ones, with real-time alerts accessible through Iveda’s Trusted Circle monitoring app.
"We are proud to have one of the most innovative on-site Telehealth Suites in the country at Waymark Gardens,” said Dr. Eric Luster, Chairman of the Board, Waymark Gardens and Seniors Rising Homes. “This facility is a flagship for the future of senior living and will serve as a model as we expand to multiple facilities across the state, and eventually throughout the country. Iveda is a key partner in bringing top-of-the-line technology solutions to our resident Veterans, improving health outcomes, and extending their independence while improving quality of life."
A Waymark Gardens resident expressed to the Board: “Even though I live independently, I do fear falling because my balance has declined over the years. Living at Waymark Gardens allows residents access to IvedaCare technology, which gives my family the extra peace of mind and assurance that I’m staying active and they will be alerted if something happens outside of my normal routine. I don’t want my family to worry about me all the time; the IvedaCare Trusted Circle notifications are set up to communicate easily among my close friends and family.”
IvedaCare continues to reinforce Iveda’s mission to effectively care for and protect the people, places, and things that matter most. For more about IvedaCare, visit www.ivedacare.com.
