The LeadingAge Center for Aging Services Technologies (CAST) recently released a new report featuring 19 aging service organizations that are pioneering new programs, products, and business models involving new technologies that meet the needs of the growing older population.
The 19 organizations featured in this case study collection offer a full range of long-term services and support in a variety of settings, including long-term care communities, assisted living communities, independent housing, continuing care retirement communities (CCRCs), private homes and other community settings. They are located in urban, suburban and rural areas.
These organizations are also among the first providers to recognize that technology could help them improve the quality of their service programs and create new business models while honoring consumer preferences and saving health care dollars. The report offers practical information about developing technology-enabled business models.
