Title:  The Future Integrated Health and care Ecosystem


        There is a growing ageing population, and along which there is an increasing prevalence of ageing-related physical, sensory and cognitive declines and chronic diseases. Yet available healthcare resources are dwindling, and the gap between the need and demand is becoming wider in the time to come, not only in the developed countries but worldwide. Technology and innovation has offered promising solutions for addressing this global ageing problem. Nevertheless, easy-to-use smart healthcare systems and services with large-scale uptake have not yet been seen. In this talk the speaker will discuss the impact of the global ageing problem on the quality of life, society and economy. He will review the state of the art of the technology-driven approach to smart healthcare, examine existing research efforts, major initiatives and high-profile projects from which gaps and barriers will be highlighted. The speaker will then present the concept of an integrated healthcare ecosystem which offers a vision to move beyond technologies towards future solutions and their delivery. He will describe a framework for the proposed ecosystem and the underpinning enabling technologies with special emphases being placed on the methods and mechanisms of technology integration, and the processes of the interactions among multi-disciplines, sectors and stakeholders. The speaker will speculate research challenges and strategies, and further share his insights into the future research and application.
