Enhancing Health Equity of Aging-in-Place Older Adults with Sustainable Technology: Current Projects and Considerations to Data Science

We discuss the importance of sustainable technology in promoting health equity among aging-in-place older adults. We identify three key considerations necessary for the sustainability of technology in the health field, and examine ongoing projects that align with these considerations, including remote in-home sensor data and electronic health record integration to deliver tailored health messages to independent living older adults, and virtual reality simulations for nursing. Data science components (e.g., multimodal data integration, causal discovery analysis) to effectively support the health and well-being of older adults aging in place that pertains to these sustainable technology-driven projects will be discussed.
