A new contract with Movement Interactive and Iveda is increasing veteran access to medical tech devices across the U.S.
June 27, 2023
Movement Interactive and Iveda have been awarded an eight-year contract to provide digital health care services to 72,000 veterans across the U.S.
Movement Interactive, a medical wearable startup powered by Iveda tech, will provide fall detection and telehealth technology to support the health and safety of veterans, in the contract worth just more than $1 billion.
Iveda’s medical tech services IvedaCare and IvedaAI will also be provided as part of the contract, offering bot-enabled ambient fall detection, medication adherence monitoring and real-time location monitoring capabilities, all of which can be accessed via a mobile app.
Data on patient behavior and progress will also be collected to improve ongoing care.
“Our partnership with Movement Interactive continues to reach new heights through this VA subcontract,” said David Ly, Iveda’s CEO. “It’s fantastic to see the U.S. government investing in updated technology infrastructure, all in the interest of bettering our veterans and senior care.”
“As more veterans choose to age at home, the need for patient monitoring technology is becoming more critical than ever,” said Eric Luster, Movement Interactive’s CEO. “Iveda’s robust roster of AI and IoT technologies is providing veterans and caregivers alike with unmatched peace of mind, knowing real-time alerts can be transmitted to the appropriate parties and immediate and informed action can be taken.
“Our goal is to simultaneously monitor the well-being of our veterans while also enabling their independence.”
According to the Military Times, the number of veterans aged 75 or older using veteran health care is expected to reach 3 million within the next decade. As the veteran population continues to age, demand for health care innovations is rising, with the need for accessible, user-friendly services a necessity for both caregivers and patients alike.
The news follows the partners’ announcement in April that they would deliver AI and IoT technologies to senior living communities, rolling out the same technologies as seen in the VA contract to communities across the U.S.
