Alcor members requested a service to help monitor and improve response times for cases. Several monitoring services are available in the general market and some of them cost up to $50/month. Alcor extensively tested some of these services and formed a partnership to support an optional service that is now available exclusively for Alcor members.
The service provider offers live daily calls to the general public at a price of $30/month. On behalf of our members, Alcor was able to negotiate additional value and features for the same price that is offered to the general public! Alcor Check-In service supports:
- Live daily calls at a specific time with emergency support from 24/7 call centers;
- A mobile app supporting additional functionality, such as mobile check-in to suppress calls, declaration of emergency to initiate a call, geo-location, and more;
- Notification sent to our SST team and providers to help Alcor respond in case of emergency.
Alcor’s strategic partners, Suspended Animation (SA) and International Cryomedicine Experts (I.C.E.), both tested the Alcor Check-In and shared the following statements:
Suspended Animation was honored to be given the opportunity to beta test Alcor's new patient monitoring phone application. After using the service for 30 days, we were pleased with the timeliness of the check-in calls, professionalism of the representatives, and speed of service should assistance be needed. The additional utilities within the application provide a variety of coverage for the varied lifestyles of Alcor's members. This is a great value add to Alcor's member services and SA recommends this application to all Alcor members, especially those in rural areas, living alone, or outdoor adventurers.
International Cryomedicine Experts (I.C.E.) is honored to have been selected to beta test Alcor’s new check-in service. The service provides a level of security, knowing that if one of us were to become ill or incapacitated, Alcor would be notified. Because time is so important when it comes to optimal cryopreservation, this service would help reduce the time between deanimation and the start of cool down and stabilization. Kudos to Sarah and the Alcor staff for providing this service to the members and helping I.C.E. receive advanced notice for S.S.T.
Alcor Check-In is an optional service available to interested Alcor members. If you want to enroll in the service, want more information, or simply to test the service out for a limited time, please contact our Case Logistics Manager at Sarah.Kelly@Alcor.org.
