Lack of strong community support mechanism and professional personnels trained in serving children with congenital anomalies resulted in poor transition management and additional caregivers stress.
Children with complex care needs depend primarily on hospitals or post-acute care facilities which are not only costly, but also impedes re-integration of them into the community. Community based care options for such cases are currently limited, especially for younger infants and children who require specialized care techniques and equipment. In addition, traditional home care operations are hampered by manpower costs and transportation.
To deliver nursing care to children with complex care needs at home.
KK Women’s and Children’s hospital (KKH) and Jaga-Me are collaborating to deliver specialized nursing care to children with complex care needs at home by training Jaga-Me nurses with the necessary specialized skills, and deploying them efficiently via Jaga-Me’s proprietary on-demand platform. In this manner, Jaga-Me will deploy care professionals into patients' home in as short as 2 hours, and with as much as 40% of cost savings compared to the status quo. The platform will also support family caregivers with respite and caregiver skills reinforcement, and thus reduce caregiver stress and lower the risk of clinical depression.
Community nurses will be upskilled with specialized skills to provide accessible, just-in-time community care services for children with complex care needs at home.
