"Technology for Long Term Care" is a Web site for
professionals engaged in planning, designing, managing, researching,
and care giving in long-term care settings. This site focuses on
technologies related to important care issues including: fall prevention/detection,
wander management, assistance call systems and incontinence management.
The Web site's content supports the dual objectives of informing
and educating the long-term care provider or potential consumer
about available technology products.
Technology for Long Term Care is the result of a research project
initiative by the Department of Health and Human Services to address barriers to bringing new technologies into residential care settings. Polisher
Research Institute and IDEAS constructed this Web site under contract
with the Office of the Assistant Secretary for Planning and Evaluation
of the Department of Health and Human Services.
Future of project
As future funding is obtained, Technology for Long-Term
Care will add care issues, expand existing care issues by including
more products, and provide supplemental resources to aid in the
selection and procurement of technologies for long-term care.
