The number of Americans 65 and older is projected to more than double to over 98 million by 2060 – equaling 24 percent of the total population. The impact on healthcare and support services will change the way we look at every step of care delivery.

  • How will technology such as passive remote monitoring impact the acceptance and adoption of telehealth by older adults?
  • What is needed to remove the barriers for older adults to adopt telehealth as they continue to live independently longer and desire to manage their overall health?
  • How can the telehealth continuum be improved beyond the online doctor visit?
  • What technologies and modalities can incorporate a greater range of healthcare in an aging seniors home?
