Northland PACE

Northland PACE (Program for All-inclusive Care for the Elderly) receives capitated payments to care for high-risk seniors in the community. WalkWise allows their providers to continuously screen for signs of illness or infection, reducing costs and short-term skilled nursing utilization. They can promptly deploy paramedics to homes after a fall has occurred, rather than waiting up to 72 hours for the next scheduled touchpoint. During physical therapy, WalkWise data is used to encourage activity at home, leading to dramatic functional improvements. One participant was inspired by the WalkWise graphs to increase their mobility from 100 feet a day to 900 feet a day, and this ultimately reduced their hospitalizations. WalkWise has become an essential tool for keeping PACE participants safe and healthy at home.
