Today’s tech-savvy seniors are leading healthy, independent and active lives well into advanced age; however, they still have significant medical needs, whether residing independently or in senior care communities. The focus today is on ensuring more effective, efficient care (including fewer hospital readmissions), as well as better overall quality of life and population health.
New thinking around daily physical activity requirements, as well as advanced wearable technologies, is expanding opportunities to improve care and overall health. This session will discuss new research from the Stanford University Center on Longevity that looks at the potential of wearables to redefine the 24-hour activity cycle (24-HAC) and advance population health, especially among aging and senior populations. It will also explore how wearable devices are starting to deliver a more complete and timely view of resident/patient health, supporting more informed decisions and earlier intervention.
