Use of Health IT for Aging Adults
The Agency for Healthcare Research and Quality (AHRQ) is hosting a webinar to discuss the development of innovative technologies to improve care planning and communication with aging adults. Presenters will discuss technologies designed to integrate the home context with clinical data to improve care planning for aging adults. They will also discuss technologies that provide health information, resources, and tools to connect aging adults with families, providers, and peers to aid in healthy aging.
At the conclusion of this webinar, participants should be able to:
- Describe the impact of a web-based information and communication technology system (Elder Tree) aimed at connecting aging adults with family members, caregivers, other aging adults, and community resources on elder independence and quality of life.
- Describe the development of a family-centered web-based platform (InfoSage) to improve communication, coordination, and collaboration related to health care decision making and care transitions for aging adults and their families.
- Discuss the benefits of integrating a full-scale 3D model of a home with EHR data for aiding in care planning for aging adults.
