WEST BEND, Wis., Aug. 12, 2014 /PRNewswire-iReach/ -- GrandCare Systems, a leader in the digital caregiving technology industry, is delighted to announce an increased emphasis and investment on a sales program directed towards professional in-home caregivers, long term care and healthcare providers. In order to build and maintain a strong and dynamic sales team, the organization has organized a robust outside sales program consisting of territory directors and has created an inside sales team.
Although GrandCare remains available direct to consumer through the GrandCare online store or on Amazon, the company's focus is on professional caregiving organizations, including: non-medical homecare providers, home health providers, long term care organizations and the newly formed accountable care organizations.
"Moving away from our previous direct to consumer model, the mentality of this new configuration and strategy is to better align our inside and outside sales team to drive strategic growth and in the end better serve and support our aging population, by arming caregiving experts with the best in innovative technology," said GrandCare CEO, Daniel Maynard. "The technology is affordable and has proven revenue success with professional caregivers, enabling them to offer extended caregiving services beyond the traditional hands-on care hours".
GrandCare is designed to increase profit margins for non-medical and home health providers by allowing for new service models and helping to reduce unnecessary hospital admissions and readmissions.
"Our home care agency has seen significant results using GrandCare technology, including patient and caregiver satisfaction, reduction of emergent care utilization as well as enhanced care coordination and education for the patient" comments Anne Major, Knute Nelson's Vice President of Home Care and Hospice. "Our services span 26 counties in West Central Minnesota and GrandCare has allowed us to better connect individuals living in rural areas with health care tools that help to manage their care in their own homes."
Organizations like Knute Nelson also use it as a competitive advantage and a socialization connection resource for families.
"It's a great way to feel like I'm in touch even though I am across the country from mom," said a Knute Nelson customer. Another chimed in "[GrandCare has] the ability to continuously receive current pictures from family and friends, from any computer to my mother's. The GrandCare system has greatly contributed to my mother's overall mental health. "
GrandCare Systems starts at just $699 and $49 per month for retail consumers and offers volume discount packages for professional caregiving, long term care and healthcare organizations.
