Amendola Communications, a nationally recognized, award-winning healthcare and technology public relations and marketing firm, announced that Connect America, the nation’s largest independent provider of medical alert systems, has selected the firm to amplify client successes and industry best practices after a competitive review of agencies.
Connect America offers a full suite of reliable connected health solutions, including personal emergency response systems, remote patient monitoring and medication management solutions. Working with more than 1,000 healthcare network partners, Connect America has improved the quality of life for more than a million subscribers and their caregivers during more than 35 years of life safety monitoring.
“I have worked with Amendola previously which gives me the confidence that Amendola is the firm best able to help us achieve our growth goals with highly effective marketing, PR and social media support. They were my first phone call when I sought a PR partner at Connect America. I am thrilled to be working with them again,” said Janet Dillione, chief executive officer of Connect America. “The agency’s experience in healthcare, as well as its deep expertise in marketing and public relations, will help us to communicate the value of our connected health solutions that keep patients across the U.S. safe every day.”
“Vulnerable populations such as the elderly often need immediate medical intervention in the event of emergencies such as falls, medication mismanagement, or sudden changes in vital signs,” said agency CEO Jodi Amendola. “It is so gratifying to work with a repeat client to help tell its story and to educate the company’s target market on the value of its personal emergency response and remote monitoring systems. Connect America saves lives.”
Amendola is implementing a comprehensive media and communications plan for Connect America that will showcase the company’s current technology and services, new offerings, accomplishments, customer wins, and industry partnerships. Recently Connect America announced it has been awarded a three-year contract to provide Personal Emergency Response Systems (PERS) to Medicaid recipients in New York City.
