Tech in the Golden Years: How Tech Changes Aging

Tuesday, March 15
9:30AM - 10:30AM

JW Marriott
Room 201-202
110 E 2nd St


Millennials are using their digital know-how and ingenuity to make their lives a little easier - whether it be catching a ride-share to the bar or having an on-demand service do the cleaning - but what about the aging population? Are there easy-to-use services for elders? How does a startup build a service for seniors? In this panel, SXSW goers will gain a fresh perspective on emerging tech in senior healthcare from an often unheard gen at SXSW: a baby boomer. HomeHero (Kyle Hill), True Link (Claire McDonnell) and PillPack (TJ Parker) will speak on the need for quality caregivers, physicians and easy access to medication, while the aging senior (Anthony Hill) can share his own perspective.
