Bringing Health Home: The New Frontiers of Technology and Aging


June 22 at 10:30 am PDT / 1:30 pm EDT

The coronavirus pandemic laid bare the stark vulnerabilities of the US long-term care (LTC) system, but also unleashed a rapid acceleration in the adoption of tech-enabled care for older adults living at home or in residential facilities. The opportunity presented by this shift is vast: McKinsey & Company estimated that 35 percent of home health services could be virtually enabled as of 2020. Technology-driven solutions have the potential to enhance quality, reduce costs, and increase access across the entire health system. Recognizing the growing need for LTC, the emergence of home-based and alternative care delivery models, and the rapid evolution of technology, this panel will spotlight opportunities for innovation in promoting integrated health and home care.
