Joining the ranks of other multinational consumer electronics providers entering the senior care space, Toshiba is betting big on the sector, which it views as $10 billion opportunity.
The Tokyo-based electronics conglomerate specializes in an array of technologies, from consumer-facing products like laptop computers and TVs to industrial power systems related to nuclear, hydroelectric and wind energies.
Most recently, the company is utilizing its expertise with LED televisions and imaging displays to launch its latest series of mobile tech solutions available for older adults, clinicians and other healthcare providers via its subsidiary, Toshiba America Information Systems, Inc. (TAIS).
“The healthcare industry is an important transition, becoming increasingly digital and depending on technology more than ever,” says Wesley Smith, director of Healthcare Information Systems at TAIS, Digital Products Division.
Headquartered in Irvine, California, TAIS comprises three units known as the Digital Products Division, Imaging Systems Division and Telecommunication Systems Division.
