Participants will have the opportunity to practice installation and implementation of the socialization touchscreen monitor and all of the optional accessories including telehealth, HIPAA video chat, and activity of daily living monitoring. The training also includes comprehensive sales and marketing session discussing, sales strategies, effective online marketing campaigns, the competitive landscape, healthcare reform, long-term care opportunities, and how to brand your company as the "go-to" in the aging and health technology space.
GrandCare and CEDIA will co-host the event along with special guest speakers include Michele Ahlman from ClearSounds Communications discussing hearing loss in the aging population and Jeff Hill from MyGait discussing easy senior computing solutions.
"This training is an excellent opportunity for home technology professionals to learn more about the emerging home health market and how those offerings could be incorporated into their business plan," said Luke Amos, CEDIA senior director of learning.
