  5. If healthcare practitioners don’t have the right level of security in their offices, where does that leave us, the patient?

We are all patients somewhere, and we all deserve to have our sensitive information safeguarded from public display. Health data is not like a credit card that can be changed. It’s the most intimate details about a person and it stays with you forever. We need to do better.

Don’t Let Water Damage Drain Your Health

Don’t Let Water Damage Drain Your Health

August 3, 2019

 

joe_alfrey.jpg

 

Joe Alfrey, CEO of Sencentric, which designs and manufactures products for real-time, end to end cold chain monitoring for the agricultural, food & beverage, and pharmaceutical industries joins eHealth Radio and the Health News and Technology Channels. The company has recently introduced a new product called SimpleSENCE, a Wifi-based Water Leak and Freeze Detector.

 

Listen to interview with host Eric Michaels & guest Joe Alfrey discuss the following:

  1. Tell us about the new product, SimpleSENCE. How does it work, and why did you invent it?
  2. Obviously, undetected water leaks can create severe water damage. But how can that affect your health?
  3. We’ve certainly heard about water damage causing mold. What other health-related issues can arise?
  4. If a leak goes undetected long enough, can it cause enough structural damage for a person to hurt themselves by, say, falling through a floor?
  5. If a leak is being caused by rusting pipes, can there be rust in the water – in other words, besides having a leak, could you also have a water-quality issue?

Summary: Most of us have experienced the nuisance and costs associated with leaky pipes. Believe it or not, a pipe that leaks just once every second every day, all day, would fill a gallon container in only four and a half hours. Now imagine if that leak went unnoticed for a long period of time – weeks or even months. The structural damage that can be caused by that leak can not only be expensive to repair but can actually be dangerous to your health. In fact, there are more health risks from undetected water leaks than you may realize. Water leak detectors – especially in areas of your home that are not readily visible or accessible – can catch leaks early and alleviate the costs, the inconvenience and, most importantly, the health risks associated with structural water damage in your home.


Joe Alfrey is the Co-Founder and Chief Executive Officer of Sencentric, a company that designs and manufactures products for real-time, end to end cold chain monitoring for the agricultural, food & beverage, and pharmaceutical industries. His company recently introduced a new product called SimpleSENCE, a WiFi-based Water Leak and Freeze Detector.
