San Francisco Chronicle Reports on linkAges Signal Detection Component

Posted on Nov 11, 2013

One of the components of the linkAges program is called “linkAges Connect.” It’s purpose is to spot meaningful shifts in the social and physical health of seniors before it’s too late.  linkAges Connect attempts to do this by utilizing passive signals in the home (such as utilities/water usage patterns) to prevent acute care incidents and support well-being by detecting indicators that something might be wrong so that an appropriate responder/caregiver can receive a timely alert.

Recently, San Francisco Chronicle health reporter Victoria Colliver wrote about what we’re doing with this. Here is a link to  her article:
