QMedic Launches Multi-lingual Coronavirus Outreach Program for High-risk Older Adults


BOSTON, March 16, 2020 /PRNewswire-PRWeb/ -- Leading medical alert service provider QMedic has launched a remote multi-lingual outreach program to deliver coordinated Coronavirus (COVID-19) messaging and guidelines to older adults living at home. This outreach program is being conducted in partnership with QMedic's managed care organization (MCO) partners across the country.

"The growing COVID-19 pandemic demands a personalized evidence-based messaging strategy that targets geographically and linguistically diverse members who are most vulnerable to contracting Coronavirus," says QMedic CEO Sombit Mishra. "In collaboration with our MCO partners, QMedic is committed to translating and broadcasting CDC and evidence-based guidelines to our multi-chronic members, most of whom are socially isolated and may not have access to unbiased information regarding Coronavirus."

The typical QMedic member has 3+ chronic conditions and receives QMedic services through an MCO partner. "Addressing geographic and language barriers is critically important to this endeavor," says Mishra. "For example, members who speak Spanish or Creole in South Florida should receive different information in their preferred language versus a Mandarin speaker in New Jersey or an English speaker in Minnesota. With our smart technology platform, QMedic is well positioned to scale up unbiased personalized messaging to these at-risk populations, and to do so quickly."

About QMedic:
QMedic was recently named the #1 medical alert system for disabled seniors by The SeniorList and partners with leading Fortune 500 MCOs including Anthem, Blue Cross Blue Shield, Centene and United Healthcare. The company specializes in two-way emergency response, proactive behavioral monitoring and personalized outreach to support healthcare service delivery. QMedic has received numerous awards from the National Institutes of Health and is a former winner of the Cleveland Clinic Future of Medicine Award.
