Connectivity allows access to health information services at home for self-care, on-line or automated consultations, links with home telecare devices for safety, independent living and social links.
The trends for access to healthcare from the consumers’ own homes through intelligent assistive technology offers significant sustainability advantages including reduced admissions, readmissions, length of stay when people are admitted, reduced carer and patient travel, and other clinical, social and economic benefits.
This paper will discuss the opportunities for better delivery of care to the elderly in their own homes, the availability of innovative technology, evidence of benefits and pathways for greater adoption.
