Healthsense to Present Its Technology Solution for Reducing the High Cost of Aging at 2nd Annual Digital Health Summit at CES
CEO Brian Bischoff will participate in panel discussion of the role of remote monitoring in digital healthcare systems
MENDOTA HEIGHTS, Minn.–(BUSINESS WIRE)–Healthsense Inc., a leading provider of low power Wi-Fi-based safety and wellness monitoring technology for senior care, will present its groundbreaking solution to the high cost of aging at The Digital Health Summit at the 2011 International CES on Jan. 7, 2011 in Las Vegas.
Healthsense President and CEO Brian Bischoff will participate in a panel discussion of the role of remote monitoring in digital healthcare systems. The highly anticipated panel will bring together industry leaders to explore one of digital health’s most talked about subjects – using remote monitoring technology to keep seniors safe and independent, while significantly reducing the cost of care.
“Healthsense employs advanced low-power Wi-Fi sensor technology to allow seniors to live safely and independently with a high quality of life either in their own homes or in less expensive, lower acuity care settings,” said Bischoff. “The widespread adoption of Wi-Fi makes a low power Wi-Fi solution simpler, more reliable and more cost-effective than other approaches.”
Bischoff added, “The cost of our technology is minimal compared to the expense of nursing home care – $125 per month per person versus $6,000 per month per person. Spending on aging services, especially with the pending retirement of the baby boomer generation, is clearly reaching unsustainable levels. The Healthsense model of technology-supported independent living is the solution to the high cost of growing old in the United States.”
Now in its second year, The Digital Health Summit at CES focuses on the growing market of consumer-based innovations that sit at the convergence of technology and healthcare. The one-day summit and exhibition of more than 65 companies will bring together healthcare industry executives, developers, manufacturers, buyers, distributors, service providers, academicians, and more, to examine the fast-growing digital health industry, and take a look at the trends and technologies leading the way and explore its future.
The Digital Health Summit will be held at the Las Vegas Convention Center, LVCC North Hall, N253 on Jan. 7, 2011. The panel discussion on the role of remote monitoring in digital healthcare systems will be held from 10:30 to 11:30 a.m.
