Center for Technology and Aging Brief Reviews Technologies That Improve Chronic Care and Help Older Adults Maintain Independence
Date:8/18/2009

age medication information, dispensing, adherence, and tracking.

Remote Patient Monitoring - technologies designed to manage and monitor a range of health conditions.

Assistive Technologies - devices and equipment that help individuals perform a task or prevent injury.

Remote Training and Supervision - technologies used to train and supervise health and long-term care workers, and the potential for continuing education and quality assurance.

Disease Management - patient-centric, coordinated care processes for patients with chronic conditions and conditions that have a significant self-care component.

Cognitive Fitness and Assessment - technologies that measure cognition or include cognitive practice regimens.

Social Networking - technologies that enable the building of communities of interest that help older adults communicate, organize, and share with other older adults and care providers.

The brief describes key factors contributing to the public health challenges of curbing long-term care costs and minimizing the burden of disease and disability for the aging population:

  • Demographics: The population of Americans aged 65 and older will double during the next 25 years and account for roughly 20% of the total population.
  • Epidemiology: The US Centers for Disease Control and Prevention estimates that approximately 80% of older Americans have at least one chronic condition and 50% have at least two.
  • Economics: Per person personal health care spending for the 65 and older population was $14,797 in 2004, 3.3 times higher than the spending per working-age person.
  • Workforce: In the next decade, home and community-based long-term care providers will face a shortage of direct care workers.
