KORE and Medical Guardian, a provider of personal emergency response systems (PERS), jointly announce their collaboration on a medical alert device using eSIM technology. This technology is designed to overcome cell signal challenges and address healthcare access disparities by enabling electronic switching of service carriers for optimal 24/7 connectivity.

KORE OmniSIM technology provides Medical Guardian the flexibility to wirelessly switch to a network carrier that best meets members' needs. It streamlines logistics by allowing Medical Guardian to use a single SIM card to connect to multiple providers, future-proofing safety devices against network or carrier changes and enhancing member satisfaction.

The new eSIM is activated in Medical Guardian's newest PERS device, the MGMini, which was designed to facilitate "active aging," as defined by the World Health Organization (WHO). The device leverages KORE's reliable connectivity services and KORE OmniSIM technology to optimize opportunities for health, participation and security for aging adults. 

The MGMini enables seniors to live independently for longer by providing access to vital resources. Its two-way communication feature allows wearers to instantly connect with emergency operators and caregivers at the press of a button. In addition to responsive care, the MGMini's connectivity will provide proactive on-person touchpoints to improve health outcomes for Medical Guardian's rapidly growing membership of over 100,000 individuals enrolled in Medicaid Long-Term Services and Supports (LTSS), Dual Eligible and Medicare Advantage programs.
