Education Session

PERS, mPERS, the Sandwich Generation and Why it Matters
Friday, June 16, 2017 08:30AM - 09:30AM
Most adults prefer to age in place and Personal Emergency Response Systems (PERS) offer solutions to help family and primary care givers extend aging in place for adults as long as possible. However, this is more than the traditional “I’ve fallen and can’t get up” opportunity we’ve grown to expect. Mobile PERS (mPERS) has opened up the market, allowing us to GPS track an individual — meaning keeping up with children, lone workers and creating a vastly more sophisticated telehealth opportunity. In this session, you’ll learn:
• The differences between PERS and mPERS and what the target market really is
• The true buyer of the products and services
• How monitoring PERS and mPERS differ from traditional security monitoring
• What are the main factors that contribute to profitability
