SimpliHere is a mobile application that simplifies caregiving for those impacted by ALS and other neurodegenerative diseases. The app allows patients and caregivers to communicate, manage daily life, and stay connected to each other. The mission of SimpliHere is to help patients and families face the overwhelming nature of ALS by helping them to communicate basic needs, easily reach caregivers, and find comfort with other individuals sharing the same challenges. Additionally, SimpliHere encourages patients and families to contribute valuable information to medical communities in order to advance critical research on neurodegenerative diseases, including ALS.
Through a simple interface, SimpliHere’s three primary capabilities are augmentative and alternative communications, connection to communities, and access to valuable resources such as news updates, products, and other services to help manage daily life. The app also features Louise- a personal voice assistant that allows patients and caregivers to request a variety of actions or ask questions related to ALS.
The following features are available through the SimpliHere app:
Communicate: Use a voice assistant or one-click menu allowing to communicate basic needs in a single click- both in-person and remotely;
Contact Provider: Create and manage a care circle of selected individuals to streamline communication within families;
Find Equipment: Browse a sample inventory of equipment and other products available for purchase or borrow to assist in daily living;
Connect with a Community: Find the right community or forum with other patients and caregivers facing the same challenges;

Voice Bank tools: Leverage leading tools available to preserve patients’ voices to be later used with speech generating devices such as VocalID, Project ReVoice and Model Talker
SimpliHere recognizes the imposing challenge of neurodegenerative diseases– particularly that of ALS, and is determined to fight it at every turn. The priority is to generate awareness of the disease and its devastating impact on patients and families. The ultimate goal is to innovate and support the community while still searching for a cure.
