There are reasons to worry

Within the U.S., five million seniors live in long-term facilities while another 11 million live alone. Among those in long-term care facilities, 95% say they have been, or have seen another resident, abused.  Indeed, 50% of nursing home staff admit to abusing patients. Among those living alone, 40% report having a severe disability that requires some type of assistance making them prone to injuries or home-care abuse.

Of the 40 million seniors over the age of 65, the most vulnerable is the fastest growing segment age 85 or older. "Over the coming years taking care of our seniors is only going to become more challenging," claims Rhonda Harper, CEO. "The number of seniors over age 85 is expected to increase four-fold over the next few decades."

The number of Americans 65 years and older is projected to reach 73 million in 2030, up 33 million verses 2010. Serving this growing population is estimated to require five million direct-care workers by 2020, up 48% from 2010. Direct-care shortage levels are predicted to increase due to low compensation and high turnover. 

Working Americans are particularly impacted

Seventeen percent of the workforce is responsible for aging seniors. Among these workers, 70% claim work-related stress and 40% will quit or reduce their work hours. "Among those who continue to work, studies show workplace productivity will be reduced by nearly 20%," continues Harper.

"I founded Penrose Senior Care Auditors due to my personal experience," says Harper who took over responsibility for her aging father in 2013. "I learned that senior care facilities often didn't provide the level of care I expected, or that my dad deserved. I wanted to help others in the same situation."

Given the popularity of the containers, further investment in the telco/cable industry is needed to transition existing VM-based solutions to containerized cloud native deployments. The networking architecture of the solution isolates the network traffic into different network planes (e.g., management, control, and media). This naturally makes support for multiple interfaces in container orchestration engines an indispensable requirement.

If you want to scale in a certain way, let’s say you identified a need for more storage and want to add a device that is not sold by the HyperConverged vendor, forget about it....

Any startup has to have a clear go –to-market strategy from the beginning. Similarly, any data science project has to have a go to production strategy from its first days, so it could go beyond proof-of-concept. Machine learning and artificial intelligence in production would result in hundreds of training pipelines and machine learning models that are continuously revised by teams of data scientists and seamlessly connected with web applications for tenants and users.
Vulnerability management is vital for large companies that need to secure containers across thousands of hosts, but many struggle to understand how exposed they are when they discover a new high security vulnerability.
