Davis and Martin Talk About Remote Monitoring and Technology at NASDDDS ConferencePublished: Monday, June 25, 2012
|Mark Davis, President of the Ohio Provider Resource Association, spoke at the 2012 mid-year conference of the National Association of State Directors of Developmental Disability Services in Sacramento, California. Davis co-presented with John Martin, Director of the Ohio Department of Developmental Disabilities, at the event.
Speaking at the national conference titled "Smart Solutions through Technology and Leadership Practices," Davis spoke on June 7 about how OPRA members use remote monitoring and technology enabled support for individuals with developmental disabilities. Martin talked about how the state of Ohio implemented remote monitoring as an HCBS waiver service. The systems, including use of cameras, sensors, motion detectors, and other devices, assist individuals with activities of daily living and keep them safe. Also, the technology promotes independence and integration in the community for people with developmental disabilities.
The new technology was launched in July 2011 in Ohio, making the Buckeye State a leader in remote monitoring and enabled technology support and among the first states in the nation to offer the assistance.
