About the Seminar:New devices, sensors, data analytics and apps are transforming health care for older adults - not only by supporting health care processes such as transitional care and reducing readmissions - but enabling patients to remain in their own homes even while dealing with difficult to manage chronic conditions. Information available at the right time, in the right hands, and at the right place is essential to effective care transitions, enabling care providers, and engaging older adults. This talk will focus on the emerging set of opportunities and challenges in implementing technology-enabled solutions to improve the health and well-being of older adults. Central to the advancement of these solutions is the need for integrated or systemic solutions across the health care continuum, from wellness and prevention, to the end of life. In addition, it is critical that these solutions support family caregivers as well as improve the capacity of providers. As hospitals, nursing homes, and residential programs move toward more patient-centered, coordinated care, and older adults increasingly remain in the community for longer periods of time, technology will play an ever more essential role in achieving the ultimate goal: greater independence. The talk will also cover some of the innovative solutions and best practices and also provide a context for developing new solutions for the future.
