Aging & Tech Forum: Addressing the Silver Tsunami

Monday, March 9, 2020 | 8:00am - 4:30pm

Room: Hyatt - Plaza International Ballroom DEF

Cost: $350 Additional Registration.

Over the next three decades, the number of people older than 65 in the United States will double from 40 million to 80 million. This adds up for a much greater need for healthcare professionals, and technology will play a key role in augmenting the predicted shortage of clinicians, especially those specializing in geriatrics, needed to care for this population.

With the so-called ‘silver tsunami,’ comes a need to reinvent care delivery for seniors who are, additionally, living longer than ever, with most not experiencing perfect health. The forum will examine how virtual care and other technologies are: 1.) being used to manage chronic-care seniors in the home; 2.) help seniors who are thriving to live the active lives they choose for as long as they can.

This year’s event continues the conversation but through a different lens: half the day will be devoted managing chronic care seniors in the home; and half to helping active seniors, who are living longer than ever, maintain their independence and role in society.

Key takeaways:

  • How can provider organizations bring care to the home?
  • What innovations are working and ready to scale?
  • Addressing current and future needs, including extra disease burden and shortages of healthcare providers
  • Case-studies from the field
