LiveFreely Partners With RapidSOS to Provide First Responders With Real-Time Emergency Health Data
Premier digital health company LiveFreely, Inc. announced a partnership with RapidSOS to send life-saving data directly from its software app, called BUDDY, to 911 centers nationwide. Built in partnership with public safety, RapidSOS’s emergency response data platform securely and automatically links life-saving data from connected devices and apps directly to over 4,700 emergency communications centers nationwide.
The nation’s 911 infrastructure was built in the 1960s for landline phones, requiring individuals to verbally convey information to 911 personnel in an emergency. With this partnership, emergency personnel can receive critical alert notifications and access real-time health-related data while en route, enabling faster diagnosis. “We are reducing time-to-triage, creating a more holistic view for first responders in emergencies, allowing them to act with greater precision when seconds count,” said Dr. Arthur Jue, LiveFreely CEO and co-founder. “This is especially critical for seniors who are experiencing increasing isolation during COVID-19.”

Initially developed with seniors in mind, BUDDY is a personal health assistant app that monitors and helps manage factors such as fall prevention and detection, medication reminders, GPS location, and emergency notification alerts. The platform utilizes artificial intelligence and machine learning to optimize sensor capabilities in smart wearables, such as Fitbit smart-watches, predicting and detecting irregularities as well as tracking critical health information.
