CommScope, a provider in home networks, has launched HomeSight, a new connected care system that enables remote care services for healthcare and home-care markets.

The HomeSight system makes possible a wide array of connected homecare services by third party application providers, such as remote patient monitoring, video calling for consultations and social interaction, community connections, health education, in-home environmental monitoring, and more, the company says. HomeSight includes connected devices that help improve remote care delivery, reduce loneliness and isolation, and support longer independent living.

The HomeSight system leverages the TV in the home to seamlessly connect healthcare and family caregivers with patients and loved ones in real time, without the need for a scheduled appointment or the technological barriers of navigating a mobile device or laptop. The simplified end-user experience improves patient accessibility, engagement and adoption of care services, reducing the need for in-person appointments or visits.

The HomeSight system combines a TV-connected smart camera with edge compute, a comprehensive cloud service for data transfer and device management, environmental sensors, and an LTE connectivity module for homes without broadband access or for use as a back-up connection. Third party connected medical devices may be used with the system for patient monitoring. A set of Application Programming Interfaces (APIs) is available for application providers to integrate applications and workflows to deliver innovative, reliable, and secure in-home patient services.

“We believe there is a tremendous opportunity to bring extraordinary value to the healthcare and homecare markets,” says Joe Chow, senior VP, Home Networks, CommScope. “We are leveraging our legacy and expertise in delivering innovation in devices, software, and services for the home to advance the quality of care through connected care solutions with the reliability and security that patients and care providers demand.”

CommScope also announced today that the first deployment of the HomeSight system is by Kraydel, a developer of homecare applications, to deliver Kraydel’s Konnect platform to healthcare and homecare service providers. Konnect is a remote monitoring platform that supports a user’s independence by utilizing the existing TV together with the HomeSight hardware in the home for easy access to health and care services, while providing peace of mind to their family and friends, the company says.

Kraydel’s Konnect platform is the first application to leverage the HomeSight system, leading the way in advancing personalized home care services. CommScope is licensed to resell Konnect in select new markets.
