About

Laurie M. Orlov, a tech industry veteran, writer, speaker and elder care advocate, is the founder of Aging in Place Technology Watch and Boomer Health Tech Watch -- market research that provides thought leadership, analysis and guidance about technologies and services that enable boomers and seniors to remain longer in their home of choice. In addition to her technology background and years as a technology industry analyst, Laurie has served as a volunteer long-term care ombudsman and is certified in Geriatric Care Management from the University of Florida.


Aging in Place is the ability to live in one's own home - wherever that might be - for as long, as confidently and comfortably possible. Livability can be extended through the incorporation of universal design principles, telehealth, mhealth and other assistive technologies. It is described with reference to Aging in Place Technology Watch and quoted in CNN, Kiplinger, The Wall Street Journal, The NY Times, and USA Today.  Laurie is profiled in Business Week's Launching Startups, Huffington Post, and The NY Times.


What does a market research firm and industry analyst do?


Market research firms understand and explain the structure and categorization of vendor markets. This includes explaining the purpose of a market category, who are the vendors in that category, and what it takes to succeed.  Market research firms serve both the vendor community and those organizations who help consumers with purchase decisions about products and services from those vendors. Industry analysts act as spokespersons for both the needs of the ultimate customer and strategic directions of the vendor community. Listen to interviews on All Things Considered January 2015
