The area of home health care is exploding in our nation because of the aging population. Here’s a brand new solution from Grandcare Systems that is eHealth Tech worthy.
Dr. Eric, the Medical Director for Grandcare Systems, joins Health Tech Weekly guest host Chris Montera to talk about this in-home tele health monitoring device. It was initially created for increased socialization opportunities for shut-in populations among the elderly. As the technology was continuously developed, there was an opportunity to begin to collect health and medical data using the system.
Using that information from the patient’s home gives caregivers and medical providers more opportunities to treat problems among the aging population of users before these problems become serious. Even when the patient is not seen in the doctor’s office, they can be safely and effectively monitored from a distance by family and health professionals.

One thought on “Grandcare Systems Help Elderly Stay at Home Longer”
Thanks for taking the time to interview our new chief medical officer, Dr. Erick Eiting. One clarification regarding pricing for your GrandCare System, the pricing varies (determined by the model chosen, sensors deployed and added caregiving/monitoring services).. GrandCare is offered across the country and in Canada, New Zealand & UK through authorized reselling partners. Systems can be bought or leased. Dr. Eiting referred to a general activation fee when a system is leased. This would be accompanied by a monthly software maintenance charge (sometimes including added alert monitoring/caregiving services). Leasing monthly cost can range in the low hundreds.
