Addressing the Healthcare Needs of Our Aging Population with Technology

IEEE-USA MEDIA ALERT

WHAT: Addressing the Healthcare Needs of Our Aging Population with Technology is a one-day symposium designed to focus on the role of computer, communication and other electronic technologies to improve the quality and cost-efficiency of geriatric care. Spearheaded by IEEE-USA's Medical Technology Policy Committee and its Geriatric Working Group, four sessions will be held to identify: needs, problems; technologies; public policy, regulatory and legislative issues, barriers and inhibitors; and perspectives, next steps. The symposium findings and recommendations will be compiled in a report for legislators, policy experts and regulators aimed at supporting a unified national home health care agenda. An overview of the symposium can be found at http://www.ieeeusa.org/conferences/geriatrictech/index.html.

WHO: The symposium is sponsored by IEEE-USA, Mitretek Systems and Intel Corp.

WHEN: Friday, 4 June 2004, 8:00 a.m. - 5:30 p.m.

WHERE: Mitretek Systems, Inc., 3150 Fairview Park Drive South, Falls Church, VA.

WHY ATTEND: Arrival of the baby-boom generation has created an unparalleled urgency for understanding and expanding of our national geriatric medical service offerings. Within the next decade, according to the 2000 U.S. Census, our 60-plus population is expected to more than quadruple, and will place additional pressure on healthcare providers. Utilization of healthcare services and their associated costs will not only increase as healthcare inflation outpaces overall inflation. Utilization will also disproportionately increase as seniors take advantage of an expanding array of new technologies for managing chronic illness and promoting active lifestyles.
