Our siloed, disconnected healthcare system isn’t designed to meet the growing needs of an aging population with chronic diseases. From declines in chronic conditions to falls and injuries, these events typically happen inside the four walls of the home, making them more challenging to detect, prevent and treat in their earliest stages. Unsurprisingly, the lack of visibility into the home can often lead to unnecessary care usage and medical costs for this at-risk population.
Here at Connect America, we believe that the future of health is in the home. Virtual care at home can help address care needs, contain costs and improve outcomes.
You’re probably thinking – that sounds nice, but how can we make it happen?

Connect America recently announced fascinating results from two research studies. You can review them in this webinar hosted by Rosemary Kennedy, Chief Informatics Officer at Connect America, and Shane Curd, the Head of Healthcare Marketing at Connect America.
We found that personal emergency response systems (PERS), combined with analytics, can go far beyond fall alerts to identify at-risk and rising-risk individuals, enabling earlier interventions and proactive care.
Here’s a sneak peek at our results:
- A 68% drop in 90-day readmissions
- A 49% decrease in 180-day emergency medical services (EMS) encounters
- A 31% decrease in total hospitalization costs
How can I achieve these results?
Often, we find that organizations lack a strong technological underpinning or underutilize the digital connections they have in the home. As a result, they miss out on key inflection points that enable smarter interventions.
Connect America Home™, our next-generation, AI-enabled digital health and safety platform, provides secure, continuous, and non-intrusive monitoring alongside critical emergency and non-emergency wrap-around support services. This first-of-its-kind platform integrates innovations in PERS and remote patient monitoring (RPM) with a suite of supportive services, including AI-enabled virtual health assistance and Social Determinants of Health (SDoH) support. Robust data and analytics help identify critical changes in an individual’s health, activity, and mobility, enabling more informed clinical decision-making, smarter interventions, and fewer adverse events. This results in dramatically better outcomes, lower care costs and extended quality of life, as demonstrated by these studies.
