Addressing the care needs of the growing senior’s population asks for new and innovative paradigms.
Such paradigms ask for new business models and financing strategies in order to build capacity in the system without driving costs to unsustainable levels. Information Technology will have to be leveraged to improve efficiency and reduce the amount of resources required to meet seniors’ needs. This has to be accompanied by an unprecedented level of collaboration between clinical professionals, informal caregivers and seniors. A truly integrated care model that puts seniors and their families in charge for as long as possible is the key for the proposed paradigm to succeed.
In his presentation, Dr. Guerriere will explore these issues and present examples of innovative solutions that promise to address the challenge of caring for the senior’s population.
