The aging population is rapidly increasing and they are the highest consumers of healthcare in the US. The elderly face many obstacles to healthy aging including unacceptably high readmission rates; uncontrolled costs of healthcare; and loss of independence. For these reasons and many more, there is an increasing shift away from acute care to home care. Many factors impact the efficacy of home care in ensuring healthy aging including the changing healthcare regulatory environment, emerging technologies, and an increasingly tech savvy elderly population. We have put together a panel that operates at the intersections of entrepreneurship, technology, policy, and clinical practice surrounding elderly home care. Our goal is to explore the opportunities available to innovate in home care so we can improve the lives of the vulnerable elderly population.
