Why we’re backing aging in place—join us

Natural disasters always shine a bright light on healthcare infrastructure holes. Case in point: despite mass digitization of patient records since Katrina, most hurricane victims’ digital records are still left behind—in an EHR, inaccessible when they need it most. On that note, New Jersey is developing a Master Person Index, making way for a possible universal record system.

In TX or LA? Doctor on Demand is offering free telemedicine care for hurricane victims.

Seniors are disproportionately affected by disasters—and healthcare issues. That’s why we’re supporting a new wave of solutions for low-income Americans to age safely. Apply by October 2nd for the 2017 Aging in Place Challenge. Pitch winners get $50K.
