Description & Coverage
Description:

Technological innovation continues to be present in all areas of our lives, offering seemingly endless possibilities. As technology is increasingly implemented in healthcare applications, it is necessary to understand whether users respond to a predefined organizational strategy of model of care or whether they will become wholly dependent on the healthcare technology. This understanding is especially crucial when dealing with the possibility of generating inequities, especially with individuals that are elderly.

Exploring the Role of ICTs in Healthy Aging is a collection of innovative research that proposes the detailed study of a strategic framework for the development of technological innovation in healthcare and for its adoption by health organizations. While highlighting topics including emotional health, quality of life, and telemedicine, this book is ideally designed for physicians, nurses, hospital staff, medical professionals, home care providers, hospital administrators, academicians, students, and researchers. Moreover, the book will provide insights and support executives concerned with the management of expertise, knowledge, information, and organizational development in different types of healthcare units at various levels.

The many academic areas covered in this publication include, but are not limited to:

  • Digital Media
  • eHealth

Reviews & Statements

"This book is an excellent resource for clinicians and that provides inspiration and a framework for adopting innovative thinking in healthcare planning. Caring for the aged is often a neglected area of healthcare research, but the innovative technology in this book could play an important role in caring for the aged in many healthcare settings. The book's interrelated themes of care approaches, work organization, communication, social sciences, and smart phone use offers insight into the innovative technologies to coordinate care."
