Millions of Americans are involved in providing care for family members or friends, and they represent a vital but often overlooked component of the health care system. To date technology has played a relatively minor role in supporting their activities, but that may change in the near future. This workshop built on the findings of a recent expert roundtable on family caregiving & technology. Participants learned about powerful new technologies for tracking and managing health, and engaged in an interactive exercise to design future technology-based solutions.
We are experiencing the biggest transformation in health care ever. Technology plays a significant role as an enabler of that transformation but will not drive it alone – caregivers and patients also play a role.

The impact of adding more patients and more data to a limited number of caregivers will require more data aggregation, bigger data analytics tools, and connected mobile technology. In this session AirStrip announced a number of initiatives combining the power of analytics and the user experience of AirStrip’s Native Mobile applications.
