12:00-12:30 Eastern | SmartMonitor
When the SmartWatch Inspyre™ by Smart Monitor detects repetitive shaking motion, it signals the user’s device (iPhone or Android phone) to send text and phone call alerts to whomever the SmartWatch Inspyre™ user designates, such as multiple family members and care providers.

Within seconds, family members receive these alerts which include the date, time, location, and duration of the event. SmartWatch Inspyre™ users can also summon help with the push of a button. 

12:30-1:00 Eastern | Health Risk Screening Tool
The Health Risk Screening Tool (HRST) is a web-based rating instrument developed to detect health destabilization in vulnerable populations. The HRST screens for health risks associated with a wide variety of disabilities, including developmental disabilities, physical disabilities, disabilities associated with aging and other conditions, which specifically affect systems of the body and the person’s ability to engage in functional activities. Part of the instrument examines the health risks associated with psychiatric or behavioral disorders, particularly those that result from medications, self-injurious behavior or restriction of movement.

The most important outcome of the HRST screening is to guide in the provision of health care support and surveillance. The instrument is used to determine the types of further assessment and evaluation required by the person to be safe and healthy in the least restrictive setting.

Once a person is screened, the HRST produces service considerations and training considerations.  Service considerations alert the supporting team as to what health-related services, such as a medical consultation, might be needed to address health risk. Training considerations guide the team on the types of training needed for support staff to be able to recognize and respond to health issues that a person may face.
