About

Dr. Kenneth J Dupin
Dr. Kenneth J Dupin

  Addressing the isolation and loss of independence for aging loved ones is my life passion.. MyPart app will track phone calls, visits and appointment transportation by giving a numeric value to the activities of caregivers. Encouraging family members to embrace the responsibility of taking care of their loved one as they received care is the focus. This is a tool that will allow family members to acknowledge their role. It rewards those who own the responsibility with an optional financial incentive. Support services such as transportation, shopping, personal care or moving have a numeric value in our society and should be acknowledged as such. MyPart app will define this process and allow families to determine how to use this information.

Risks and challenges

The two most regulated industries in the United States are healthcare and home construction. Yet, our company N2Care was able to navigate the challenges and launch a new product, the MEDCottage, affectionately known as the Grannypod. The MEDCottage received Entrepreneur Magazine's designation as "One of 100 Great Ideas" in 2011. Understanding that everything has barriers is step one to overcoming whatever challenge is yet to be known. As exciting as new concepts are, they are proportionately as difficult to implement. Unlike other known products or even apps, you merely need to make a product better and less expensive to have some measure of success. For a new concept such as the MEDCottage or the app MyPart, there must be an understanding of how this product can affect one’s life by solving a problem or adding value to one’s current situation. Our first barrier is for the consumer to understand our product and then to actually apply the app to a problem that has resisted other solutions. Nevertheless, in time all mainstream products were able to overcome this reality and so shall we.
