Icon of a concept that is incompleteExisting home health offerings address only singular aspects of aging in place and neglect whole-person care. Insurers and caregivers are supporting more patients at once with undesirable outcomes.

It’s time for a whole-person, data-driven solution for aging in place

HGS Healthcare Aging in Place™ (AiP) focuses on frailty and falls mitigation, and acute- and long-term care avoidance.

With analytics, AiP prevents and modifies the high-risk factors for needing higher-level functional assistance, while providing ongoing digital monitoring and education.

AiP is a specialized, end-to-end program and service platform that enables individuals to age in their own homes. By leveraging a proprietary frailty and falls risk assessment, HGS AiP deploys individualized interventions. Our proven methodology addresses frailty, cognitive decline, loneliness, activities of daily living (ADLs), home and transportation issues, and coordination of healthcare needs.

The AiP platform is built on a four-pillar framework:

  • Advanced predictive analytics
  • Multi-disciplinary and integrated care teams
  • Clinically evidenced methodologies
  • Digital channels of engagement

Customizable, end-to-end solution components are critical

Our end-to-end solution integrates healthcare specialists, community partners, workflows, and analytics in innumerable, innovative ways to ensure members, caregivers, payers, providers, and partners are working in sync to enable seniors to live at home longer.
