UPCOMING MDG EVENTS
Dec 3 MDG Forum 
Technologies and Approaches for Monitoring and Improving Health and Aging In-Place
 
This Forum Will Help You:
  • Identify business opportunities for medical devices in this large & growing unmet need
  • Assist family or friends with chronic conditions to 'Age in Place' at home
  • Assist physicians, nurses, and care groups--especially in geriatrics & home health care

Experts will describe insights & models for:

1) Technology access to services

2) Monitoring & improving health

3) How "Aging in Place" can occur

  

"The marketplace for technology to assist aging adults in the Longevity Economy is expected to grow to more than $30 billion in the next few years"
  Aging In Place Technology Watch

Program Description  
This session will review new monitoring technologies to allow more people (including children, chronic disease patients and frail elders) to be treated more humanely and cost effectively at home.  

 

Nearly three-quarters of medical expenditures are for a small number of chronic illnesses including cardiovascular disease, cancer, diabetes, and asthma--which are particularly acute with our aging population, population, while the cost is increasing at a rate that cannot be sustained. 

 

The use of devices that monitor patient symptoms and provide real-time advice on treatment and medication has the potential to control costs. Moving to electronic systems for service delivery will save money and improve access.

 

There is also a need to remove barriers to adoption of mobile applications that aid in chronic disease management and make these tools much more widely available.

 

The FDA has finalized its guidance on how mobile applications and regulated mobile medical devices are to be treated to clarify ambiguities and promote innovation.

 

 

We hope you can join us
for this conversation.
