CAREASCEND EARNS AWARD FOR EXCELLENCE IN TECHNOLOGY
Signature HealthCARE is honored to earn the Silver Award in the McKnight’s Long-Term Care News Excellence in Technology award competition.
The award was earned in the High-Tech, High-Touch category, which honors communities who have implemented a technology that improves team interactions to enhance care of residents and patients. Signature HealthCARE was recognized for their digital platform, CareAscend.
CareAscend helps post-acute and long-term care providers engage with their medical directors to assure full compliance with various regulations. CareAscend is a collaboration between Signature HealthCARE and MavenSphere.
The digital application is the first in the industry to address the important issue of medical director engagement by setting systems for their seamless connection with facility leadership regarding key activities such as quality assurance, staff education, and many other critical tasks. The application provides medical director training resources including on-boarding and ongoing education.
“Engaging post-acute medical directors more, to enhance their partnerships with facility leaders is one area that just has not been addressed before,” Dr. Arif Nazir, Chief Medical Officer of Signature HealthCARE, said. “With CareAscend, we are seeing an improvement in medical directors’ involvement in skilled facilities’ strategic and quality improvement aspects, an approach which is a must for the value-based systems including PDPM.”
Signature HealthCARE is excited to earn an award in the McKnight’s Excellence in Technology Awards for the second year. In 2015, they were honored for their Spirituality pillar in the innovation category.

DigiBiomarkers Technology Award
A new innovative application platform, DigiBiomarkers...
A new innovative application platform, DigiBiomarkers, has been developed by Indiana Biosciences Research Institute (IBRI) in collaboration with MavenSphere, Inc., to facilitate the rapid deployment of tools based on Apple’s ResearchKit, HealthKit, and CareKit software frameworks to capture digital information from individuals or patients.
See Indiana CTSI news release: https://www.indianactsi.org/news_/new-mobile-research-tool-rfa/
DigiBiomarkers (www.digibiomarkers) enables a wealth of data to be captured from patients which has not been available up to this point in time, and brings more objectivity and efficiency to clinical trials, thus accelerating the pace of quality research. The opportunity to remotely and continuously monitor patients provides a more contextually valid picture of patient health, while increasing the number of data points researchers have from which to draw conclusions.
The Indiana CTSI is now offering access to this platform. Applications to this program are limited to a total of $10,000 for customization of the software. Duration of the project may vary, depending on the research needs.
Researchers considering an application for use of this platform should contact Bharath Bynagari of DigiBiomarkers to discuss their project and receive a demonstration of the application platform prior to submission: bynagari@MavenSphere.com or 317-590-8275.
