Technology advances are changing the way we care for older adults. Technology is also changing how information is collected, shared, analyzed and integrated into healthcare organizations. Staying up to date on the latest technology trends can feel overwhelming, sometimes generating more questions than answers. What are the top trends? How will I know if the technology I invest in today will improve how I care for my residents? Is technology helping or hindering the ability to increase team member engagement and operational efficiency? Is it worth it? Can my organization afford it? Join us to explore the latest in emerging technology trends and the applications for use in senior healthcare. We’ll take a non-technical walk through the world of health technology and explore examples of how providers are thinking about the changes to their programs, practices and processes when new products and technology are being implemented. Attendees will gain new information about emerging health technologies and insight into how to begin evaluating the value technology can bring to their organization.
