The Department of Health and Human Services launched a Web site, www.TechForLTC.org, for nursing homes and assisted living providers so they can stay apprised of technologies for facilities – and improve quality.

The site gives hundreds of low tech and high tech options spanning four areas: fall detection and prevention, wander management, calling for assistance and incontinence management.

It also addresses providers' regulatory concerns.

Polisher Research Institute and IDEAS Inc. constructed the site under contract with the Office of the Assistant Secretary for Planning and Evaluation at HHS.
