What makes Knute Nelson's technology offerings different than the rest?

Telehealth with Smart Home Technology
Empowering you to stay in your home

Have you recently been diagnosed with one or more chronic illnesses?
Do you feel isolated in the home and lack social interaction?

If you answered yes to either question, Knute Nelson's Telehealth technology can help. Telehealth with Smart Home Technology offers “peace of mind” for the entire care giving network, while giving the loved one, independence, freedom and happiness. Telehealth combines essential health care components and social connectivity while caregivers can be alerted if anything seems amiss (medication not accessed, unusual home activity) while the loved one enjoys two way interactive web chat with friends and family (via SKYPE), incoming communications (pictures, messages, emails, videos, music, calendar dates, etc.), trivia, and card games right on the interactive touch screen.

This technology was supported, in part, by a CS/SD grant from the Minnesota Department of Human Services (DHS) and the Blandin Foundation.

MedSmart
Medication Management made easy

Do you have complex medication schedules?
Do you have a habit of forgetting your medications?
Have you had recent medication changes?

If you answered yes to any of these questions, medSmart can help you! It organizes your medications, reminds you to take them, dispenses them to prevent errors, and can notify and send reports to your primary caregiver. medSmart reduces dosing errors, simplifies medication regimens, and improves overall health.

Personal Emergency Response
Live with Confidence

Have you fallen recently or feel that you are at risk for a fall?
Have you been to the emergency room or been hospitalized one or more times in the past three months?

If you answered yes to any of these questions, our Personal Emergency Response system can help! When seconds count, an Alert System can make a vital difference. According to the New England Journal of Medicine, getting help within one hour after a fall improves survival rate by more than 90%.
