Technology holds a central role in expanding the market for home health care. A few decades ago, the home care industry was nonexistent. Today, home care is not only a multi-billion-industry, but one of the fastest growing sectors around the globe. Our massive aging society demands vigorous market innovation combining high-technologies with high-touch possibilities. The full potential of the technology-enabled home health care market remains to be tapped but the reimbursement models and focus on patients and families is paramount. This panel will explore how other industries have balanced technology with human interaction including human centered design and highlight the many innovations that are transforming aging and the future of care.
