Abstract

Senior care has become one of the pressing societal challenges faced by many developed and emerging countries, including the US (the aging baby boomer) and China (the reverse 4-2-1 family pyramid due to one child policy). Despite failing health, most senior citizens prefer to live independently at home and hence the focus of current healthcare technologies have shifted from traditional clinical care to “at-home” care for the senior citizens. We propose to develop SilverLink, a system that is unique in its smart and connected technologies and will offer: (1) affordable and non-invasive home-based mobile health technologies for monitoring health-related motion and daily activities; (2) advanced mobile health analytics algorithms for fall detection, health status progression monitoring, and patient health anomaly detection and alert; and (3) a comprehensive patient health activity portal for reporting user activity and health status and for engaging with family members. This system will initially be launched in the US, in China and in Taiwan and will aim to overcome the limitations of existing home-care solutions.
