Connecting the Circle of Care

The term Circle of Care has come to signify the support network that forms around a person undergoing medical care or treatment. For most people, this includes healthcare practitioners, professional and unofficial caregivers, as well as family members or close friends who are involved in their care and well being.

We developed aTouchAway specifically for people with complex care needs to bridge the gap between patients, their families, care team members and treating medical professionals.

Affordable and easy-to-use, the aTouchAway app has two main components as well as optional add-ons like a personal safety bracelet and robust metrics and reporting for organizations that support the care of multiple clients.

More information on additional functionality for facilities or managing groups of patients, please see aTouchAway Enterprise.
