Topic: Senior Cyborgs & Technology powered “digital caregivers”
This course is an exploration of how digital health technologies (video chat, activity, telehealth and medication monitoring) will empower the aging and chronic disease mgmt population while providing caregivers and health providers with BETTER information, eliminating the “noise” and enabling proactive, predictive and preventative care. With the backdrop of the affordable care act, health providers are being penalized for cost of readmissions within 30 days. Meanwhile, this society is faced with a huge disruptive demographic: the aging population. One can hardly discuss the aging tsunami without addressing the rising cost of healthcare, typically more is spent in the later years in life. Everyone is looking to provide more cost-effective care where we turn caregivers into “zone players” vs. old school man on man.
