Blended care model powered by Navigil

With sophisticated and easy-to-use technology, Navigil S3 and Navigil Rafael service enable the vulnerable persons to get timely assistance either from family and friends or from a 24/7 alarm receiving centre.

Navigil Rafael service includes industry benchmark routing features for help request calls and notifications. This enables family members and friends to share the care workload reliably and safely. By the Rafael service caregivers can easily define a weekly prioritized calendar schedule for routing help request calls and alarms among themselves.

Secure routing ensures that the reachability sequence doesn’t end up on a voice mail box. Instead, the call is automatically connected to the next person in the sequence if there is no response from a caregiver.

Additionally, Rafael service supports automated are-you-well call setups between a loved one and caregivers. Everyone involved in the care provision is able to know the status at all times and can rest assured that vulnerable person is safe and reachable.

“At Navigil, we are committed to deliver secure and high availability services to our customers and end users. Working with a telecom provider such as BT enables us to do this not only in the EU but more importantly in other global markets”, says Matti Räty, CEO of Navigil. “Reliability, control and flexibility are very important criteria in telecare and personal safely solutions. Thus, we are very happy to be in good hands with the BT Control Centre”.

“BT has a proud history of innovation and is a natural partner for Navigil. I believe the performance, flexibility and reliability of our IoT platforms and support team gives Navigil the high level of confidence they need for a global deployment “, says Chris Sims, MD Marketing & IoT, BT.
