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.
