GreatCall is making its products and services available in more than 4,000 Rite Aid pharmacies across the U.S.
The rollout includes GreatCall’s Touch3, Splash and Jitterbug5 phones, as well as the company’s health and safety services. The latter include the 5Star service with US-based NAED Certified Response agents, Urgent Care that provides 24/7 access to registered nurses, the MedCoach medication reminder app, and the GreatCall Link app that gives family caregivers peace of mind by providing both critical information in an urgent situation and snapshots of normal daily activities.
According to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), the cost of providing health care for one person aged 65 or older is three to five times higher than the cost for someone younger than 65. By making it easier and more convenient method to manage health needs, GreatCall is bringing older adults into the mobile health revolution, which benefits the health care system and also provides this population of people with much needed support.
GreatCall is bringing older adults into the mobile health revolution.“Today’s older adults are redefining the way we age, and GreatCall’s mission is to provide them with usable solutions to keep them thriving,” said Bill Yates, CMO of GreatCall. “Through Rite Aid, a company that shares our mission, we are bringing this vision to life. This is a critical step in a broader active aging strategy.”
