Global Wireless Health Limited (GWH) has introduced its Vidapoint Certified Service Provider program for businesses and organizations to offer a comprehensive yet cost effective personal emergency monitoring solution for delivering help to elders. The program, unlike any other PERS offering, is a complete solution, planning and implementation service. As a result, it makes it easier for more organizations to implement VIDAPOINTTM to control and reduce the costs of potential elder injury, recovery and care, especially from falls.
Falls by the elderly are an increasing cause of death and injury consequently care costs can increase significantly due to delays with help arriving. “Fall death rates in the U.S. increased by 30% year on year and in a recent published review, over 646,000 individuals were affected annually across the globe.” said the World Health Organization (WHO).
“With the aging population rapidly increasing the market for personal emergency response is expected to be a 9 billion dollar global market by 2022.” according to Global Market Outlook. “VIDAPOINTTM will uniquely facilitate that growth opportunity” said Steven Beeferman, Managing Director of GWH. “We are providing a turnkey offering to those who want to take advantage of this business opportunity”, he added.
The VCSP program provides a full, yet flexible, range of products and services to facilitate faster local emergency response to the elderly, by making it more available and affordable in existing and new markets. Investment is significantly less than in typical central station call centres and service costs are lower due to new technology that makes VIDAPOINTTM affordable. The VCSP program has extremely low startup and operating costs whether added to existing businesses, such as hospitals and home care or elder support programs. The VIDAPOINTTM solution is available in any language, making it very adaptable for organizations wanting to have it integrated with its ’local speakers’ and local language programmable spoken medication reminders and other voice announcements, keeping the user informed and calmer.
GWH’s Chief Knowledge Officer, Pedro Correa, said “we have provided a locally compatible solution design and delivery all the way from the user device customization to the Help Centre software and call-handling protocol development resulting in a reliable yet simple vital service for older people that can be a benefit to the user, community and families”.
VIDAPOINTTM software suite also includes the VIDAPOINTTM mobile APP that allows family and caregivers to remotely set the service parameters (medication times, fall detection levels, Geofencing, location) via any smartphone without requiring contact with the call centre to assure cost effective call operation. Vidapoint Certified Service Providers have full control over the VIDAPOINTTM APP implementation and responses from pendants and the subsequent dispatch of emergency assistance and notification of family, caregivers or professional services.
The VCSP program is available as a subscription service available for use in over 120 countries. Initial service offerings can be as low as 100 devices, expandable to tens of thousands of users. GWH also offers VIDAPOINTTM service marketing support as well as implementation management services for large projects.
