Home healthcare is a booming industry. The primary factor affecting the future of home healthcare is the aging of the baby boomer generation. According to the American Association of Retired Persons (AARP), the first of the baby boomers started turning 65 years of age at a rate of 8,000 per day in 2011 that will continue until 2029.
Recent advances in technology are critical to the efficiency of home healthcare. They have the potential to facilitate the role of homehealthcare within the overall healthcare system and help foster community-based independence for individuals. These advancements and innovations enable the senior citizens to have a qualified Phoenix caregiver come to their home, rather than only have a full-time skilled nursing facility as a resource.
Many telehealth systems have made significant inroads in recent years with innovative computing and other solutions. Today, with the help of IoT sensors, home telemonitoring devices can capture vital signs, weight, or symptoms and report them to a remote provider or a home health agency. Besides, bed sensors can capture restlessness, sleep interruptions, or pulse and respiration during sleep. Caregivers are leveraging artificial intelligence-based tools to guide patients through therapy treatments at home. Further, smart home technology now offers voicerecognition capabilities, which allows a patient to call for help if they fall or experience a health or safety issue.
