The grant funding was included in the 2016-17 NY state budget as a way to evaluate the program over a 3 year period to analyze its effectiveness and make recommendations to implement restorative care programs statewide.
"Our driving mission is to develop innovative technology and concepts which are transformative in the delivery of health care services to our senior population," said Dr. Anthony J. Bacchi, MD, who developed the groundbreaking demonstration project.
"Dr. Bacchi's innovative concept has transformed the quality of care being delivered, and I am happy to help them secure this funding that will allow them to continue their good work and serve as a model to establish similar restorative care programs and improve quality of care throughout the state," said Senator George Amedore.
"I'm pleased to have worked with Senator Amedore, Dr. Bacchi and the Department of Health to secure this grant for TeliStat™," said Senator Kemp Hannon (R-Nassau). "We included this in the 2016-17 State budget to review, evaluate, and analyze the restorative care program for effectiveness and replicability and to propose recommendations for statewide implementation. This will allow TeliStat™ to showcase their efforts statewide, becoming an effective exemplar for additional restorative care programs throughout New York."
TeliStat™ has entered into a strategic partnership with Marist College in Poughkeepsie, NY to use high performance computing and analytics to provide IT support, as well as product research and development for existing and future technology.
"One of our goals as a college is to offer technologies to like-minded organizations that create a lasting impact on our local community," said Bill Thirsk, Vice President of Information Technology/CIO at Marist College. "Partnering with an organization such as TeliStat™ provides the opportunity to support our local and regional community by sharing services in support of community needs."
The Restorative Care Unit was piloted at Golden Hill Nursing and Rehabilitation Center in Kingston, NY.
