The executive conference, sponsored by Alarm.com, athenahealth, Becklar, Nortek Security & Control, Softeq, and Sprosty Network, features presentations from key executives in the connected health space:

“How COVID changed telehealth and the future of care delivery,” by Tori Ames, MPA, Manager, CincyKids Health Connect, Center for Telehealth, Cincinnati Children’s

“Explosive Growth in Telehealth,” by Dr. Donna O’Shea, Chief Medical Officer of Population Health Management, UnitedHealthcare

“Telehomecare in the COVID-19 Era,” by Mark Dunning, President and CEO, Care Planning Institute, and Gene Wang, CEO, People Power

“Better Together: Extending Healthcare to the Home,” by Richard Culberson, Executive Director, Cox Homelife Strategy & Operations, Cox Communications

“When everything changed, what stayed the same? Healthcare’s evolution in a time of pandemic and humanitarian crisis,” by Angie Kalousek Ebrahimi, Executive Director, Mind-Body Medicine, Blue Shield of California

“Transforming Healthcare with New Models to Connect Patients, Families and Providers,” by Yuri Quintana, PhD, Chief, Division of Clinical Informatics, Beth Israel Deaconess Medical Center, and Assistant Professor of Medicine, Harvard Medical School  

Parks Associates research finds COVID-19 is forcing seniors into new routines with smart home and healthcare technologies, which may result in new willingness to use tech-based solutions. Fifty-four percent of seniors who used a video conferencing solution during COVID-19 did so for the first time. Additionally, use of telehealth services rose five times year-over-year, with 29% of seniors reporting telehealth use in Q2 2020, compared to just 6% in 2019.

“COVID-19 is forcing consumers, smart home companies, and the healthcare industry to try new solutions and forge new partnerships to realize a complete, home-based experience in healthcare delivery,” said Brad Russell, Research Director, Connected Home, Parks Associates. “At Connected Health Summit, we will examine market forces driving a range of new technologies, like virtual health assistants (voice/text/avatars), AI-powered diagnostics and navigation tools, AR and VR experiences, and robotics, and highlight industry perspectives on issues such as the potential impact on health outcomes, efficiency of healthcare delivery, market viability, expected speed of implementation, and important issues to consider when applying emerging technologies.”

SDM Magazine (logo)

Genetec and HID Survey Shows Higher Education Ready to Move From Legacy Access Control Systems | #TpromoCom #AccessControl #AccessControl #Tech #Trending | While access control is a fundamental element of security in higher education, many aging access control systems urgently need to be upgraded, according to a survey of 1,800 higher education security and IT professionals conducted by Genetec and HID Global (SDMmag.com).

The survey shows that 33.76 percent of readers, 30.6 percent of controllers and 24 percent of software are more than six years old. Older technologies such as barcode, magnetic stripe and 125khz low-frequency proximity continue to dominate physical access control systems in higher education. More than half of survey respondents still use mag stripe, and almost a quarter still use 125khz prox. Sixty-four percent of survey respondents said their current access control system experiences malfunctions.

Google ADT partnership could result in market disruption

Security world hotel (images)

Google ADT partnership could result in market disruption | #TpromoCom # # # | Earlier this month, Google announced it was buying a 6.6% stake in ADT for $450 million. The brands will also commit $150 million each for co-marketing, product development and employee training, according to Reuters and ADT. Blake Kozak, Principal Analyst, Smart Home and Security Technology at research company Omdia, suggests that this new partnership could be the initial step that disrupts the smart home and alarm monitoring markets.

Kozak says that this partnership could be a bit different to other major pairings that the market has seen in recent years in that, this time, Google is investing $450 million, something it did not do when partnering with Brinks Home Security.  Here, Blake Kozak discusses the potential scenarios of how the new partnership may play out and the changes that the market may experience as a result.

DICE and Tristar help central station affected by storm | #TpromoCom #DICE #Tristar #Monitoring #Security | DICE Corporation and Tristar Monitoring stepped in to help a central station that was without power and battling flooding due to Tropical Storm Isaias (Security Systems News).

“We got a call from DICE asking if we were willing to assist,” said Tim LeBlanc, president and co-founder of Tristar Monitoring. “My immediate response was, ‘Absolutely.’”

Tristar had been in the same position before, aiding a central station in Florida for two months, while the company returned to full operations. The process of transferring the signals to Tristar was a seamless process that was made easier with both central stations being DICE customers and on the Matrix platform. The IT teams from the three companies got together and Tristar was receiving full operations including all signals and phone calls in only 45 minutes.

Value of Services to Customers (image)

The webinar, on Wednesday, August 5, 11 AM CT, addresses adoption of connected products, the multiple levels of an IoT strategy for CE companies, the challenges in the transition to a connected platform, and strategies to capture the lifetime value of customer.

“Consumers are increasingly looking for connected products when looking at retail and virtual shelves, and with more manufacturers introducing affordable devices with advanced connectivity features, many companies are in a race to develop and deploy an integrated connected experience to their customers,” said Kristen Hanich, Senior Analyst, Parks Associates. “Our research shows one in three CE device owners have experienced at least one technical issue with their devices, so product manufacturers can compete on the experience they deliver to their customers.”

The webinar features the following topics:

  • New strategies and tools to expand the CE business model from a single transaction to embrace the lifetime value of the customer
  • Consumer interest in new revenue opportunities, including subscriptions, ecosystem sales, and brand loyalty
  • Key CE marketplace trends and the factors for success or failure in the transition to connected devices
  • Strategies for using user-generated data to drive customer engagement, improve product strategy, and lower returns

Moderated by Kristen Hanich, Parks Associates, this webinar features the following panelists:
