This week, The LeadingAge Center for Aging Services Technologies [CAST] released Preparing for the Future, a case study initiative, providing a comprehensive view of the way in which 19 aged care leaders in the US have adopted and deployed technologies in their communities.

The 19 organizations featured in this case study collection offer a full range of long-term services and supports in a variety of settings, including nursing homes, 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.

Many technology solutions employed by case study participants were designed to help the organization carry out strategic initiatives and were tied to a specific and well-developed operation, service or support. Those solutions included technologies for infrastructure, safety, health & wellness, documentation and social networking.

Many of the organizations included in the study will be part of the IAHSA/CAST Technology Study Tour in April 2012.  Participation on this tour provides an excellent opportunity to learn first hand about how to integrate these into your organization.  Register today!!
