The Massachusetts Technology Leadership Council (http://www.masstlc.org/) will feature Ankota CTO Ken Accardi as the keynote speaker at their April 13th Healthcare Committee meeting, sponsored by IBM, Partners Healthcare, Blue Cross Blue Shield of Massachusetts and UK Trade and Investment. Ken's presentation is entitled Introducing the Silver Tsunami: Healthcare Technologies to Support the Elderly.
Here is Mass TLC's summary of the event:
With a record number of Americans living deep into their 80s and 90s, and the 75 million baby boomers starting to reach age 65 at a rate of 8,000 per day, health care for elderly Americans is becoming a major focus in healthcare technology. MassTLC members are welcome to join Ken Accardi, CTO of Ankota as he provides an introduction to the elder care landscape, including technologies for home safety, tele-health, improved care delivery, and more.
Ken's presentation will be followed by a planning meeting to discuss future MassTLC events including an upcoming program in May entitled "Using Technology to Improve Care while Right-sizing Costs, via Better Analytics", featuring representatives from Boston area health plans.
Ken's presentation will draw from Ankota's experience with home care, private duty care and emerging care delivery models such as geriatric care management, and will also pull from the works of Laurie Orlov, an elder care expert whose website is http://www.ageinplacetech.com/.
This event is intended for MassTLC members only and specifically for the healthcare cluster leadership team, however Ken is able to extend a small number of invitations (email ken at firstname.lastname@example.org for more details).
