JEAN DICKOW, 78, never wanted the latest whiz-bang technology. But her gadget-friendly daughter, who lives in Norway, was worried that Ms. Dickow would fall in her apartment and no one would know.
So Ms. Dickow was persuaded to put on an Apple Watch look-alike called the Lively safety watch, which has an alert button to push if she falls. Wearing a medical alert pendant that screamed old age was not an option, she said.
Besides displaying the time, the safety watch is also a step counter and even has a medication alert. But Ms. Dickow especially likes the watch’s chic look. “My club members ask me where I got the Apple Watch,” Ms. Dickow, who lives in Oakland, Calif., said with a smile.
“This is a new wave of electronics and how your kids can watch over you,” said Ms. Dickow, who does not own a smartphone. “It’s a wonderful time for seniors.” Read more →
Doctor-on-demand service Pager raised the funds from the movie star’s venture-capital fund and another investment group.
Pager a Manhattan-based doctor-on-demand service, has raised $14 million in Series A funding from Maryland-based New Enterprise Associates and Ashton Kutcher’s Sound Ventures.
The funding will be used to expand to cities outside New York, including San Francisco within two months, and to upgrade the company’s technology, said co-founders Gaspard de Dreuzy and Philip Eytan. Mr. de Dreuzy and Mr. Eytan founded the company in May 2014 with Oscar Salazar, a co-founder of Uber. Other investors in the round included Goodwater Capital, Lux Capital and Montage Ventures.
The service, available in all five boroughs, gives patients the option of forgoing the emergency room or an urgent-care center and summoning a doctor for a house call for treatment of, for example, common infections such as bronchitis. A home visit costs $50 for first-time users and $200 thereafter. Patients can consult a doctor by phone for $25 and exchange text messages with photos in the case of a condition such as a rash or insect bite.
The goal, said Mr. de Dreuzy, is delivering care at the time and place that people need it.
