National Association for Home Care & Hospice (NAHC)

The National Association for Home Care & Hospice (NAHC) is the voice of home care and hospice. NAHC represents the nation’s 33,000 home care and hospice providers, along with the more than two million nurses, therapists, and aides they employ. These caregivers provide vital services to Americans who are aged, disabled, and suffering from chronic disease. Some 12 million patients depend on home care and hospice providers. They, in turn, depend on NAHC for the best in advocacy, education, and information. NAHC is a nonprofit organization that strives for excellence in all respects. We help our members maintain the highest standards of care.


We hope you can make it!

Spaulding Clinical Announces Strategic Partnership with GrandCare Systems, Delivering Integrated Home Diagnostic ECG Monitoring

West Bend, WI – September XX, 2011 – GrandCare Systems and Spaulding Clinical Research today announced a strategic relationship to integrate Spaulding’s hand-held, portable Spaulding iQTM Electrocardiograph into GrandCare’s remote activity & telehealth home monitoring system.  The result of combining these two disruptive technologies creates an exciting industry first: a telemedicine home diagnostic ECG service, currently unavailable in the Aging and Technology Industry. Interestingly, the two internationally recognized companies were both founded in West Bend, Wisconsin, which results in seamless collaboration.

“We have a major healthcare crisis on our hands,” states GrandCare Systems Founder and CEO, Charles Hillman.  “If we don’t change how care is delivered, the aging boomers will bankrupt this country.  We need innovative technologies that can offer a more proactive, preventative, personalized and predictive in-home care experience.  This is what the GrandCare/Spaulding Clinical collaboration is all about”.

“There is a rapidly growing number of elderly adults with chronic cardiac disease that need close monitoring to remain at home,” states Randol Spaulding, Founder and CEO of Spaulding Clinical Research.  “The simple, one-button, portable design of the Spaulding iQ makes it an ideal home care product, and when combined with the telemedicine platform that GrandCare has developed, this innovative system will enable chronic cardiac patients to safely live in their homes, rather than expensive assisted-living or nursing home facilities.”

Spaulding Clinical and GrandCare will be exhibiting and collecting clinical feedback on this cutting-edge integration at the National Association of Home Care and Hospice (NAHC) Annual meeting in Las Vegas, October 1- 5th (booth 1068) and in Washington DC October 16 – 19th at LeadingAge (booth 2340).   Expect the official GrandCare/Spaulding ECG product launch in early 2012.

GrandCare Systems (www.grandcare.com) combines activity of daily living & telehealth monitoring, senior social networking, medication management and cognitive assists into one user-friendly touch-based system.  GrandCare can be customized to fit anyone’s needs to assure independence, security, happiness and overall wellness.
