Event description
Join us in identifying gaps in research, technology and policy that delay the adoption of innovations to support aging in a digital world.

About this Event

**POSTPONED**

Our international summit, Aging in a Digital World, is postponed due to travel restrictions related to the coronavirus outbreak. We plan to announce new conference dates shortly. We appreciate your patience and understanding during this process as we reschedule this exciting and impactful program that explores how changes in policy, technology and models of care can improve the lives of older adults, families and caregivers.

About the Event

This two-day conference brings together international thought leaders in aging, technology and health care policy research, with the common goal of identifying gaps in these areas that delay the adoption of innovations to support aging in a digital world.

Event Need

The cost of care for aging populations is creating critical health and financial burdens on patients, families, and societies around the world. For example, national health expenditures in the United States are projected to grow at an average annual rate of 5.5% for 2018–27 and represent 19.4% of gross domestic product in 2027.

Someone turning age 65 today has almost a 70% chance of needing some type of long-term care services and support in their remaining years. These sobering statistics are becoming the norm internationally and the gap between the promise of tech innovations and the practicalities of implementing new models of care for older adults continues to grow.

Our Vision

To create an interactive forum and networking opportunity for international thought leaders in aging, technology and health care policy research to:

  • Understand the current challenges to implementing new models of health promotion and care for older adults and family caregivers.
  • Explore novel methods for connecting clinical research and tech innovation.
  • Examine the barriers to deploying evidence-based digital health solutions to older adults in all care settings, including the home.
  • Discuss forward-thinking public policy that addresses the complex demands of an aging world.
