Stevens Roundtable: Health, Technology & Society, July 11

HOBOKEN, N.J. -- Despite medical and technological advances during the past two decades, the timely delivery of healthcare services to seniors remains a continuous challenge. It is especially difficult when seniors suffer from multiple disease states such as hypertension, diabetes and cancer. Seniors who are confined to their homes present a greater challenge to the healthcare delivery team. As America's population ages, additional disease states will present themselves, compounding the difficulty of delivering care. In addition, information privacy and security concerns, along with the economics of managing complex information-systems platforms, further burden the ability to deliver care.

These and other topics relating to healthcare services for the growing number of elderly in the US will be examined during a Stevens Institute of Technology Health, Technology & Society Roundtable discussion, July 11, 2007, 3:00 p.m. to 5:00 p.m. The discussion will take place in Room 104 of Stevens Babbio Center for Technology Management, located at 6th and River Streets in Hoboken, N.J. The event will feature a presentation, discussion and Q&A. The public and press are welcome to attend free of charge. Parking will be available nearby. Light refreshments will be served.

This roundtable seminar will bring together local patients and domain experts representing, but not limited to, healthcare providers, hospital and nursing home administrators and scientists in an effort to examine existing problems and propose innovative solutions to concerns presented by the panel and the audience, said Dr. S. Vincent Grasso. Dr. Grasso, the coordinator of the event, is also a surgeon, software architect, and adjunct professor at Stevens.

Patrick A. Berzinski, Stevens Director of University Communications, will moderate the broad-spectrum panel. In addition to several recent patients, panel members will include representatives from the following sectors: long
