Healthcare, particularly management of chronic disease, and the associated costs are all on our mind (and that of our country).
But what if all payers and providers agreed to a process that uses technology to deliver the least cost, most appropriate care at the right time, right place? This presentation introduces the idea of “Calibrated Care’ and the need to deploy a process that has saved money for the VA and Kaiser Permanente.

GrandCare is used to “AGE RESPONSIBLY”

GrandCare is a communication, cognition & wellness assessment program that allows boomers/seniors to “age responsibly” by taking their wellness into their own hands. Besides the basic ADL monitoring, GrandCare also allows for blood pressure, weight, pulse oxygen readings and glucose level reports. These are transmitted wirelessly and automatically to the GrandCare System, without the resident having to do anything. Care-partners can acess this information online and set up parameters to be notified in case of extreme circumstances (e.g significant weight gain, irregular readings, etc.) Meanwhile, care-partners can send cognitive assists, reminders, trivia, photos, videos, instructions, calendar appts and more to a dedicated touch panel monitor in the home.

Today’s conference call: Med Adherence

Leveraging Technology to Simplify Medication Management, by Jerry Hahn

Mr. Hahn entered the telehealth industry in 2003 after spending most of his career developing space shuttle, robotic, and a wide array of automated systems.  His early experience has served him well enabling him to leverage his automation background into the development of MedSignals, a state of the art, talking, communicating, intelligent, portable medication management device and system.

When used by a patient, MedSignals automatically captures medication adherence detail and forwards it to a server that supports remote monitoring and caregiver alerts.  MedSignals remote management also enables an authorized caregiver to adjust MedSignals regimens on the system and to download new settings to the patient’s device.
