Description

GeriJoy's specially-trained remote care team interacts with patients through a capitivating virtual avatar and expert system, providing 24x7 coaching, reporting, and personalized engagement to ensure that care plans are executed correctly and to report patient progress and urgent alerts to clinical managers for better informed interventions.

Pilot Health Tech NYC recently awarded a total of $1 million to a handful of innovative pilot projects, and Pace University, Mount Sinai Queens Hospital, and GeriJoy were selected as award winners, to leverage GeriJoy's patient engagement platform to mitigate delirium in older adult acute care inpatients, as well as to reduce readmissions through post-discharge health coaching. Sanford Chamberlain Medical Center in South Dakota also has a Statewide Health Improvement Program grant to reduce cardiac and diabetes related readmissions through GeriJoy's post-discharge patient engagement and coaching program.

Results will be presented from these pilot studies and there will be a brief explanation and demonstration of GeriJoy's unique patient engagement and reporting platform.

Victor grew up in Canada, programming role-playing games for MS-DOS at age six. He graduated as Wesbrook Scholar from the University of British Columbia, majoring in Mechatronics Engineering and minoring in Commerce. After working stints in telemarketing, environmental research, aerospace manufacturing, particle physics, oil sands, medical robotics, and the military, as an officer, Victor won the Canada Graduate Scholarship and earned his Master of Science at MIT. At MIT, he developed novel neuromotor tests and conducted a study that quantified the ergonomics of manual control devices for NASA's telerobotic space operations, while assisting with a $1.7M clinical study on effects of fatigue and countermeasures on human performance.
 
Considering his grandmother who became depressed living by herself and was later diagnosed with dementia, Victor started GeriJoy to bring joy to older adults and to caregivers. Victor is widely recognized as a senior care technology innovator and thought leader, and has presented at the AARP Expo, Connected Health Symposium, CES Silvers Summit, TEDMED, US Senate Healthy Aging Forum, Health 2.0 Europe (via a GeriJoy dog avatar), Aging in America, On Lok Conference on Sustainable Long-Term Care, SOCAP Social Capital Conference, and other local, national, and international events.
