Never a company to get stuck in a rut or fall behind the times, Pittsburgh-based Automated Security Alert has a finger on the pulse of public preference: social networking. Although most people view popular social networking sites such as Facebook and Twitter as a fun way to keep up with friends, Automated Security Alert sees the potential of social networking as way to educate the public about the options and benefits of medical alarms and monitored medication dispensers.
Jason Seyler, the company’s Director of Life Safety, commented, “Social media is a great place to find news, information, and reviews on healthcare professionals and similar providers of healthcare related services. With over 175 million Twitter accounts and 800 million active Facebook users it’s imperative to educate people with these platforms . . . Many are unaware of our technologies.” Automated Security Alert is using Facebook, Twitter, and blogging to reach thousands of people to make them aware of how simple precautions such as medical alarms and monitored medication dispensers can save lives, provide immediate intervention during a health crisis, and prevent serious medication errors. By using social networking to expand their reach, the company wants to further its mission to keep people out of nursing homes and in the comfort of their own homes for as long as possible.
Automated Security Alert, Inc., has provided freedom and security since 1988 to over 60,000 consumers through the use of technology and services that enable seniors, physically-challenged persons and recovering patients to maintain an independent lifestyle in their homes. ASA’s creative, dependable solutions include medical alert systems (“personal emergency response systems”); fall detection systems; and medication management systems, including electronic pill dispensers and monitored automated medication dispensers.
