Partnership to help seniors connect to healthcare, educational resources

QUINCY, Mass. — Healthcare technology company CDW Healthcare and ConnectedLiving, an organization that provides technology for the elderly, have a deal to get senior living communities online, the two companies said Monday.

The two companies said that the deal, which will provide Web-based applications, information technology infrastructure, networking technology, computing devices and hands-on staff would allow elderly people to enjoy greater social interaction by connecting them with loved ones and providing open access to community, educational resources and healthcare resources.

More than half of adults older than 65 use the Internet today, and 85 million baby boomers will retire and enter care centers or require home health assistance in the next decade, according to CDW and ConnectedLiving.
