Delivering prevention in an ageing world: Using technology effectively

  1. 1. Delivering prevention in an ageing world: Effectively utilising technology @ilcuk #DeliveringPrevention
  2. 2. Welcome David Sinclair, Director, ILC @ilcuk #DeliveringPrevention
  3. 3. Presentation of consultation paper Arun Himawan, Research Fellow, ILC @ilcuk #DeliveringPrevention
  4. 4. Our programme of work • Is moving away from “why” prevention is important to “how” we can deliver it – we want solutions • Focuses on healthcare interventions • Focuses on G20 countries • Focuses on prevention across the life course, with particular attention to older adults
  5. 5. Improving population health • Using mobile phones to tackle tuberculosis: India • Advancing COVID-19 research through participatory surveillance: UK • Personalising integrated care and preventative pathways: EU What other barriers prevent data from being shared? How else can we encourage data sharing, particularly to maximise the potential of big data and to support healthcare delivery?
  6. 6. Supporting healthcare delivery • A national health information system: Estonia • Using an Electronic Health Records system to deliver a targeted colorectal screening programme: Slovenia How can we convince governments to commit to investing in digital healthcare delivery, and in particular, to adopt electronic healthcare record systems?
  7. 7. Connecting individuals to preventative healthcare • Drone delivery services: International • Telehealth diabetes and hypertension management: USA • Airedale Digital Care Hub: connecting care home residents to healthcare: UK • Using inclusive design to improve adherence: Australia and Finland • Delivering telemedicine via TV to overcome poor digital literacy: USA How else can we overcome distance barriers without further excluding some people from preventative healthcare services? And how can telehealth be developed to be more inclusive?
  8. 8. Empowering individuals • A low-tech intervention to deliver preventative health messaging: International • Using social media to connect individuals to preventative health: USA • Using gamification to encourage individuals to adopt healthier behaviours: International • Using artificial intelligence to empower individuals: International • Digital literacy skills for the homeless and insecurely housed: UK How can we properly promote innovations while protecting individuals’ rights?
  9. 9. Discussion How can we maximise the potential of technology? • How else can technology be used, both within and beyond the healthcare system, to help deliver prevention? • Who do we need to influence to maximise the potential of technology in delivering preventative healthcare? How can we tackle the barriers to using technology effectively? • How can we tackle the digital divide and ensure technology doesn’t exacerbate or create new health inequalities? What examples of good practice can we learn from? • How can we address data privacy and misuse concerns? How can we give individuals greater control over their data? • How do we deliver interoperability? How do we measure success? • How can we ensure health technologies are successful when implemented? How can we ensure that they actually deliver their potential? • How can we measure whether a technological health intervention is cost-effective? And how can we get better at measuring cost-effectiveness?
