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.
Join the conversation with #HealthyAging.
