Description

Abstract: There is unmet potential for digital tools to help frail elderly and people with multiple chronic conditions. We interviewed patients, caregivers and system stakeholders to identify key functions of a digital health advisor (DHA), and the constraints to its development and dissemination. Efforts should focus on thriving rather than disease management, include a broad collaboration to develop it, and a novel set of incentives and new business models to sustain it.

Learning Objective 1: After participating in this session, the learner should be better able to:

-Identify policy and system barriers to their own consumer health digital tools and formulate strategies to overcome them
