Samarion CEO Mark Rodgers Named CAST Commissioner

Rodgers Will Help Lead Charge for Center for Aging Services Technologies (CAST) to Expedite Emerging Technologies Transforming the Aging Experience

WASHINGTON, July 15 /PRNewswire/ -- Samarion CEO Mark Rodgers was recently named commissioner to the Center for Aging Services Technologies (CAST) to help lead the charge to expedite emerging technologies that are transforming the aging experience.

CAST, an international coalition ensuring that technology solutions attain their fullest potential to meet the needs of our aging senior population, is comprised of nearly 500 technology companies, aging-services organizations, businesses, research universities and government representatives working together under the auspices of the American Association of Homes and Services for the Aging.

"Mark's company, Samarion, developed fall prevention technology that offers great potentials for the long term care industry," said CAST director Majd Alwan, PhD, a noted researcher and global authority on aging-services technologies. "Mark's dedication to improving the quality of life for the elderly, their caregivers and nursing home administrators and owners is valued and we're fortunate to have his leadership and expertise."

As a CAST commissioner, Rodgers will focus on driving a global vision of how technologies can improve the quality of life for seniors while reducing healthcare costs, accelerating technology research and development through pilot projects with seniors, advocating to remove barriers to the rapid commercialization of proven solutions, and promoting dialogue about standards to ensure interoperability and widespread access to aging-services technologies.

"As the population of seniors 85 and older entering nursing homes continues to grow dramatically, we must address the problem of falls, wandering and neglect now," said Rodgers. "We have the technology in place. Nursing home residents and their families deserve access to that technology now for improved quality of care and improved quality of life."

Samarion, a privately-held corporation dedicated to improving the quality of elder care, was recently recognized as an Emerging High-Growth Company to Watch. The company's signature system, SamarionSolution(SM), is the nursing home industry's only Enterprise Quality Improvement System. SamarionSolution provides groundbreaking restraint-free fall prevention; wandering and elopement prevention; resident, staff and visitor safety and security management; unparalleled staff management and facility monitoring; and an all-encompassing family-and-friends communications system.
