The Center for Technology and Aging, a not-for-profit organization promoting technology to improve home and community-based care for the elderly, is offering up to six grants for projects to expand the use of remote patient monitoring technologies.

Total funding for the grant program is $500,000. The goal of the Oakland, Calif.-based organization is to encourage more use of technologies designed to manage and monitor patients with chronic illness or prone to falls or wandering. The grants are targeted to technologies used in the home or sub-acute care that foster independent living, will improve the cost and quality of care, and reduce the burden on formal and informal caregivers.

Letters of intent are due by March 12. More information is available at
