WHITE PLAINS - Seniors gathered at the Westchester County Center in White Plains today for the annual "Salute to Seniors."

With America aging at a rapid rate, staying healthy is a serious side to the gathering. Working with Pace University's School of Computer and Information Systems, county officials introduced a new program that uses technology to remotely monitor seniors' health.

One study shows the return on investment during year one of The Telehealth Intervention Program for Seniors is 30 percent. Under the county program, TIPS will be available at nursing homes, senior centers and other places where there are large numbers of seniors.

The goal of TIPS is to identify medical problems early, which will hopefully help seniors stay out of emergency rooms and cut down on the cost of health care.
