IRVINE, Calif. - Feb 24, 2014
Toshiba's Digital Products Division (DPD), a division of Toshiba America Information Systems, Inc., today announced a strategic relationship with GrandCare Systems, a provider of digital health and activity monitoring technology enabling better health outcomes for our aging population. Through this strategic relationship, GrandCare's telehealth and communication capabilities provide a path for seniors to connect with families, professional caregivers and healthcare providers while being monitored real time on health and activity throughout the residence. GrandCare will be delivering all of this on secure, high-performance Toshiba devices.
"New digital technologies are transforming caregiving, allowing individuals to be independent, but still giving families peace of mind knowing their loved ones are safe,” Patrick Mani, vice president of sales, Toshiba America Information Systems, Inc., Digital Products Division. "Through our strategic relationship, GrandCare Systems will have the Toshiba tools to make this possible."
"Our mission is to provide a cost-effective digital caregiving solution, enabling individuals to remain healthier and more independent, while empowering care providers with more meaningful, proactive and predictive data," said Laura Mitchell, VP of Business Development, GrandCare Systems. "To achieve this, we've aligned with Toshiba to provide top-of-the-line, innovative tablet solutions to seniors, care professionals and medical providers, truly encouraging "point of care", virtually anywhere.
The GrandCare System is connected to any dedicated Internet connection and communicates with wireless sensors throughout a residence. Designated caregivers log into the GrandCare website to send communications to loved ones, view activity graphs, access digital health and medication information, and customize automated rules and alerts. A caregiver may choose to receive a call, email, or text message if specified conditions occur, such as medications not being accessed, unusual motion throughout the home or other designated events. GrandCare's simple touch platform also enables a resident to view news and weather reports, shared pictures and videos, receive incoming messages, video chat with family, listen to music and play fun games.
Toshiba and GrandCare Systems will showcase this collaborative solution on the Toshiba Excite 7 tablets and PX30 All-in-One desktops in Booth #5889 during the 2014 HIMSS Conference & Exhibition on February 23-27, 2014 in Orlando.
