Quil — which is the digital health joint venture between Comcast and Independence Health Group (Independence) — and People Power, a Palo Alto-based provider of AI and IoT technology for physical spaces, announced a strategic partnership that combines the strength of these companies to bring innovative senior and caregiver solutions to the market.
Why does it matter?
In April, Quil announced the limited commercial availability of Quil Assure, the company’s new connected home platform for seniors and their caregivers. The Quil Assure product incorporates People Power’s AI and Internet of Things platform, which utilizes ambient sensors placed strategically around a senior’s living space to discreetly monitor daily routines and notify a senior’s ‘Care Circle’ of any unusual developments.
With this partnership, both companies plan to continue to collaborate and bring innovative AI-enabled health-tech senior-focused solutions for aging-at-home.
On the record
“We are very excited to partner with People Power to solve an urgent market need for technology tools that support seniors and their caregivers while respecting seniors’ independence and privacy,” said Carina Edwards, CEO of Quil. “This partnership helps Quil get closer to achieving our mission of helping people organize and navigate their health lives in partnership with their providers, health plans, and loved ones.”
“Quil Assure leverages the most powerful AI platform for homes and communities, uniquely enabling the Quil team to personalize their own human-like AI Caregiving experiences for each family,” said David Moss, CEO of People Power Company. “This partnership is in perfect alignment with our mission to reduce caregiver burden while respecting boundaries for multi-generational families who deserve the peace-of-mind that’s delivered by Quil Assure.”
