Falls are a prevalent occurrence and common concern for seniors. In addition to causing distress, they can lead to hospitalizations and threaten one’s ability to live independently. Among seniors 65 and older, falls are the leading cause of non-fatal injuries and hospital admissions for trauma, as well as injury-related deaths.
Organizations face a common challenge around containing healthcare costs for this growing population. Public healthcare for today’s 16 million Medicare beneficiaries2 and 21.8 million veterans1 amounts to $55.83 and $583 billion4 every year.
How Lifeline Can Help
At Lifeline, we are dedicated to partnering with you to help improve the quality of care at the state, local, and federal levels. We work with an array of organizations – Managed Care Organizations (MCOs), Area Agencies on Aging (AAA), PACE Providers, ACAP Programs, Humana Providers, Medicare/Medicaid agencies, and Veteran Hospitals and Outpatient Clinics – to help them meet the needs of the clients they serve with efficient and potentially cost-effective care.
Our suite of home monitoring solutions – including Medical Alert Services, Medication Management, and Predictive Analytics Engines – can help clients remain independent, with technology designed to help keep them safer and healthier in their own community. This can potentially reduce hospital admissions and the growing associated costs of healthcare.

In addition to enabling better outcomes for your clients, we offer dedicated Response Centers based in the U.S. and Canada, a strong customer service department, and a personalized, responsive service.
