A new report by AARP and HealthXL reviews the new models of senior care. As care facilities are being firmly nudged to seriously consider the key role digital solutions can play in increasing quality of life and independence of these growing populations. If effectively designed, integrated and partnered to roll out these solutions they hold incredible promise to reduce the increased burden on healthcare systems and mitigate against disability and dependency to allow caregivers and elderly populations to enjoy the best possible quality of life.
Report co-author Maeve Lyons lists three key takeaways from the report:
1. Innovators focused on senior care must be thoughtful about their revenue model
2. Multiple stakeholders have a role to play in helping seniors thrive
3. Universal Design approaches result in solutions usable by all, including seniors
