Merging Senior Care and Technology at Home


Advancement in technology is empowering older adults to age at home. As their role in the longevity marketplace expands, health tech entrepreneurs are playing a significant role in the way we age. But there are challenges. For example, incongruent healthcare models may inhibit innovation and adoption. And there is the important need to merge the technology with human behavior. In this panel discussion, health practitioners who are also tech entrepreneurs discuss the positive impact technology is having on the lives of seniors, how it is changing attitudes about aging – and the need for progressive actions to drive the momentum.
