El Camino Hospital/Pathways Home Health & Hospice Receive Pilot Pioneer Award from Aging2.0

Sunnyvale, CA—May 21, 2015— El Camino Hospital in partnership with Pathways Home Health & Hospice receive a notable award for their trailblazing willingness to try new things.  El Camino Hospital/ Pathways Home Health & Hospice were awarded the Pilot Pioneer Award by Aging2.0 at their Global Innovation Summit.
 
Aging2.0 is a global innovation network and “start-up accelerator” with a mission to fast-track innovations for improving the lives of older people.  El Camino Hospital/ Pathways Home Health & Hospice were honored with the Pilot Pioneer award because Pathways has been among the first to try out some of the leading-edge technologies. 
 
Pathways is piloting the use of devices worn on the legs that capture data about a person’s walking gait, including irregularities which can help guide their physical therapy and identify those at risk of falls.  Pathways is also conducting a trial of a tablet that makes the internet simple for people unfamiliar with technology.  One goal of the tablet is to reduce the isolation many seniors experience.
 
Aging2.0, headquartered in San Francisco, connects entrepreneurs, technologists, designers, long-term care providers and seniors themselves in their efforts to speed creative solutions for the elderly.  El Camino Hospital and  Pathways Home Health & Hospice were jointly invited to be part of the Leaders Circle which brings together 15 corporations that Aging2.0 believes have unparalleled insight, access and reach into senior care.  Nearly 100 corporations are also currently participating in the Aging2.0 Alliance, a broader corporate membership program.
