San Francisco

Healthcare CEO Peer Group

2nd Wednesday of the month  |  8:30 – 11:30 am  |  San Francisco, CA


Wednesday, January 8, 2020

Opening Discussion Topic:

Enabling Technologies for ‘The Home Alone’

According to AARP nearly 90% of us want to remain in our homes “as long as possible.” Fortunately, new technologies and apps are enabling what Aging2.0’s Katy Fike calls “connected independence,” including:

  • PERS devices, sensors & lighting
  • Smart home hubs
  • Electronic home companions
  • Med reminders & dispensers
  • In-home monitoring systems
  • Health monitors & trackers
  • Apps that deliver everything
  • Uber & Lyft to take us everywhere
  • TaskRabbit to do what we can’t

Our Group Discussion will open with your example of a technology, app, or service that you’ve discovered can help seniors you care for remain safely at home. Then we’ll segue to your top business and personal goals for 2020 – and look to hear suggestions from the Group on the best way to achieve them.

Then, our Featured Member, Art Hoffman, Founder & CEO of Vital Link Medical Alert Systems, will present how Vital Link has enabled thousands of seniors and persons with disabilities to live securely at home alone – for over 38 years! – as well as the “lessons” he’s learned in the process, and his goals for 2020 and beyond.

RSVP today!  And please alert us to any other Hot Issues we should be sure to include.
