  • Overview

    Our best evidence suggests that nursing homes and other assisted-living facilities will likely not be able to keep up with the demands of our rapidly aging population, which today stands at more than 40 million, a number that is expected to more than double by 2050. As a result, a premium is being placed on new remote monitoring devices that allow medical professionals to track patients for medical data from the comfort of patients' own homes, thereby allowing more elderly patients to live independently for longer. Dr. Jeffrey Kaye, professor of neurology and biomedical engineering, and director of the Oregon Center for Aging and Technology at Oregon Health and Science University, joins host Dr. Danny Petrasek to project where recent advances in these technologies will guide us over the next several years.
