Scalable Intervention Technology for Older Adults Scalable Intervention Technology for Older Adults Presentation Transcript

  • Scalable Intervention Technology for Older Adults in the Home Holly Jimison, PhD Department of Medical Informatics, OHSUFunding: National Science Foundation, National Institute on Aging,Alzheimer’s Association, and the Intel Corporation
  • Scalable Approach to Delivering Interventions to the Home Remote, just-in-time, continuous care Incorporate principles of health behavior change Optimal use of lower cost personnel Integrate family & informal caregivers into the health care team (untapped resource) Platform for testing sustained interventions in the home
  • Home Monitoring Data
  • Platform to Deliver a Scalable Coaching Intervention to the Home System to facilitate a single coach in managing a large number of clients Semi-automated tailored messaging based on home monitoring and self-report data User assessment  user model  tailored data sharing, action plan, coaching messages Multiple modules – not single condition or approach
  • Modular Software for Multiple Protocols Cognitive Exercise (computer game format) Novelty exercise Physical Exercise Sleep Management Socialization Medication Management Mood Management
