Delivering prevention in an ageing world: using technology effectively: consultation paper




International Longevity Centre UK

Publication year:


As part of the Delivering prevention in an ageing world programme, this consultation paper identifies the key areas where technology can play a crucial role in helping push forward the prevention agenda. These include: 1. Improving population health through the use of big data to develop targeted preventative health strategies and improve health outcomes; 2. Supporting healthcare delivery by providing electronic health record systems and a wide range of online health services to deliver better and more efficient preventative advice and care throughout our lives; 3. Connecting individuals to preventative healthcare by overcoming distance barriers and enabling them to live independently for longer; 4. Empowering individuals to take control of their health, and improve their health and wellbeing by supporting their health literacy. The paper also collates examples of good practice, including learnings from the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic. (Edited publisher abstract)
