BOSTON – August 19, 2019 – LifePod Solutions Inc., the groundbreaking, proactive-voice caregiving service, today announced that CEO and Co-Founder Stuart Patterson will speak at the sixth annual Connected Health Summit: Independent Living & Wellness, hosted by research firm Parks Associates. The three-day summit will be held August 27-29, 2019 at the Pendry San Diego in San Diego, CA. Stuart will participate in the expert panel, “Innovation at Transformative Life Stages: New Parents and Caregivers,” on August 27 at 4 p.m. PT.
The interactive panel examines the ways in which companies identify, engage and form lasting relationships with individuals undergoing life transitions – particularly parenthood and caring for elderly parents – and offers innovative solutions for these pivotal moments. According to Parks Associates, research shows more than one-third of people in US broadband households are current caregivers or will be in the near future, and they rank emergency alerts as the most valuable home living feature.
“As the caregiving market continues to grow – currently reaching $279 billion – LifePod equips professional caregivers as well as family members with AI-powered, proactive, advanced voice technology to monitor and support loved ones,” said Stuart Patterson. “I look forward to sharing the company’s insights at the Summit as well as all the ways in which LifePod provides peace of mind to both caregivers and patients.”
The Connected Health Summit features keynote presentations from CirrusMD, GreatCall, Livongo Health, Philips and UnitedHealthcare, with more than 300 industry healthcare and technology leaders networking and discussing case studies for successful solutions in the complex digital health industry.
“The expansion of connected medical devices and telehealth services into the home, as well as the increasing movement of consumer devices into health and wellness, is growing new markets for independent living solutions that serve the elderly, patients with chronic conditions, rural households and caretakers,” said Elizabeth Parks, president, Parks Associates.
