Valentia Technologies announces the launch of Vivasta – a revolutionary integrated care platform
Dublin, Ireland
Wednesday, 19 May 2010

Valentia Technologies today announced the launch of Vivasta™, a revolutionary software platform that empowers older persons and those with long-term conditions to manage their health and wellbeing anytime, anywhere.

Aimed at public and private care service providers, Vivasta™ transcends telecare and telehealth offerings by facilitating an end-to-end continuum of care service delivery within a single integrated platform.

Vivasta™ assists individuals with varying ranges of dependencies, ranging from individuals with long-term chronic conditions who require complex multidisciplinary assistance to active elderly clients requiring assistance with specific tasks. The system offers unlimited possibilities for personalisation, both for clients and their remote care teams.

A unique feature of Vivasta™ is that it does not require proprietary device hardware and is designed to operate with all standards-based in-market care devices and technologies. The platform utilises already-available pervasive communication channels, including mobile phones, internet, sms and email.

Mr Peter Nelson, CEO of Valentia said: “Vivasta™ provides a comprehensive ecosystem for enabling connected and fully-managed telecare, telehealth, social care and independent living support services within a single platform. All these services are further enhanced by the availability of full back-end control and monitoring centre applications. Because Vivasta™ is designed to be standards-based, we are confident that it will confer great flexibility and cost advantages to care services providers and also to their end clients or patients.

Although Valentia’s focus is primarily on community-based healthcare technology development, I am also pleased to announce that we will shortly be announcing the availability of the first Vivasta-based services centre in Ireland, via a dedicated care services provider.”
