Facility owners, administrators, healthcare providers, including care coordinators interested in innovative ways to improve effectiveness in the effectiveness of programs offered by their organizations. Researchers are likely to find this content beneficial as well.
An overview of care coordination processes and methods that participants may wish to consider adopting and/or using to modify their organization’s care coordination model.
Emphasis will be placed on the ways in which the embedded sensor technology, initially developed at TigerPlace and offered by Foresite Healthcare commercially, can support proactive intervention in a preventative, person-centered model.
We will take an in-depth look at actual case studies that demonstrate the power of early intervention as a means of preventing avoidable deterioration in health status or adverse events, with particular attention paid to the use of this technology aided model to manage residents whose safety may be enhanced and cognitive decline slowed by appropriate interventions.
Researchers and those wishing to adopt the TigerPlace Aging in Place Model
A research-oriented day with details on how the algorithms were created for the Foresite technology and in-depth examination of Aging in Place and Care Coordination models. Dr. Rantz will be present on Day 2.
Foresite has commercialized the sensor technology we use at TigerPlace for early alerts. Costs of adding the technology to your facility would be negotiated with this team.
You can fly in and out of: St. Louis Lambert International Airport, Columbia Regional Airport, or Kansas City International Airport. You are responsible for providing your own transportation to and from TigerPlace for the Institute.
*Unfortunately, there are no hotels in a good location for walking to and from TigerPlace; you are responsible for your own transportation*
