My colleagues and I are building a community that supports family caregiving, providing education, support and access to providers. Our members will wear health monitoring bands, so their vitals and those of their charges can be monitored, enabling medical professionals to offer guidance in real time. We will also be collecting the data, scrubbed for HIPAA compliance, to researchers to use for development of cures and treatments. Participation in studies and research will be baked in to the community model, and all participants will be aware of this direction and will be encouraged to take an active role in providing data as well.
