Topic Description: 10 steps to Home Health Technology

The population is aging and it’s far cheaper and more comfortable to let seniors age at home rather than move to an institution or extended care facility.  While many off-the-shelf home health tech products can serve this population well, it takes a focused business plan to succeed and be profitable in the aging-at-home marketplace.Until now, integrators have shied away from jumping into the home health tech market for several reasons including fear of liability and the inability to make a convincing case for selling pricey systems to consumers. But it doesn’t have to be that way.  In this highly informative session, CE Pro offers 10 entry-level home health tech solutions to get you jump started in this up and coming new market space.

Boomers and their parents continue to be the most powerful consumers in the marketplace, despite an increasingly challenging economy. In the United States alone, there are more than 108 million people over age 45 – a group with more than $2.5 trillion in annual spending power. The 78 million boomers born between 1946 and 1964 make up 28% of the U.S. population and own more than 77% of all financial assets, and the number of Americans age 65 and older is set to double by the year 2030. Your company cannot afford to miss this market opportunity.
