GrandCare chosen as featured speaker at June 3 InControl Wisconsin event

GrandCare Systems’ Laura Mitchell has been selected to lead a discussion exploring how digital health technologies (activity, medication management, telehealth, socialization) can enable seniors to remain safer, happier and healthier wherever home is. It also engages multiple levels of caregivers, who can better and more efficiently care for an aging client or loved one.

Stop by GrandCare’s booth to experience why GrandCare is a leader and pioneer in the digital health and wellness industry.


Laura Mitchell, VP Business Development, GrandCare Systems Topic: Senior Cyborgs & Technology powered “digital caregivers”

This course is an exploration of how digital health technologies (video chat, activity, telehealth and medication monitoring) will empower the aging and chronic disease mgmt population while providing caregivers and health providers with BETTER information, eliminating the “noise” and enabling proactive, predictive and preventative care.  With the backdrop of the affordable care act, health providers are being penalized for cost of readmissions within 30 days.  Meanwhile, this society is faced with a huge disruptive demographic: the aging population. One can hardly discuss the aging tsunami without addressing the rising cost of healthcare, typically more is spent in the later years in life.  Everyone is looking to provide more cost-effective care where we turn caregivers into “zone players” vs. old school man on man.
