OHSU studies of technology for healthy aging get boost

PORTLAND, Ore. - Oregon Health & Science University, with help from Intel Corp., is moving into the next phase of a research program developing and testing new technologies to address the challenge of aging successfully.

OHSU's Oregon Center for Aging & Technology (ORCATECH) is the first funded under a new program of Intel's Digital Health Group called the Behavioral Assessment and Intervention Commons, or BAIC. The academic-industrial alliance, worth about $1 million over the next year for ORCATECH, is aimed at initiating and accelerating research into behavioral markers of disease, such as changes in walking and performance on computer games, that eventually translate into health-related products and services.

ORCATECH director Jeffrey Kaye, M.D., in the Department of Neurology at the School of Medicine and the Department of Biomedical Engineering at the School of Science and Engineering, said the work with Intel will shore up a new model of evidence-based behavioral assessment that's been under development the last two years through ORCATECH.

ORCATECH, an interdisciplinary center at OHSU supported since 2004 by the National Institute on Aging, National Institutes of Health, focuses on the development and translation of basic social, behavioral and biological knowledge about aging independently using state-of-the-art technology and engineering. Its goal is to use unobtrusive, continuous, scaleable technologies to further evidence-based aging research and assure successful aging by helping elders retain independence, detecting early physical and mental decline, and helping caregivers such as family members provide the best possible, economically feasible care.

"This program is an important complement to our NIH-based studies of aging health outcomes, in that it will allow us to make significant progress in developing continuous assessment and in-home technologies that have clinical relevance," said Tamara Hayes, Ph.D., ass
