Survey finds seniors relying on technology to manage healthcare © CureMD Healthcare
Survey • As technology continues to assist patients in improving their health care experiences, it is finding acceptance from seniors as well • As per a recent survey by research firm Accenture, 57% of patients aged 65 years and older are seeking digital tools to manage health • As seniors become more tech savvy, they are seeking virtual physician consultation (42%) and self service tools (62%) as their healthcare options
Survey • It was further revealed that 58% of the seniors want to communicate by email, while only 15% have the capability • While 67% of seniors think access to their health information is important, only 28% are able to view their electronic health records • Another shocking finding was that less than half of the seniors fill prescriptions electronically, although 70% believed it was important
Mobile healthcare • Mobile health care for seniors is a perfect tool as the population grows older and therefore, the need for medical attention increases • Seniors with conditions like diabetes, heart failure or chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD) receiving treatment can be both inconvenient and complicated • Since the population is aging, these conditions make it difficult for them to independently live in their homes and in many cases, require them to live in assisted living where their vital signs and symptoms can be routinely checked
Mobile healthcare • This is where technology can play a huge part in improving the lives of not only average Americans, but also seniors • It will make sure that they are administered care through advanced and simplified online solutions where they can be monitored by their providers easily
