The Center for Technology and Aging (CTA) serves as a national resource for the development, implementation, demonstration and evaluation of patient-centered technologies that benefit older adults.  CTA supports the adoption and diffusion of technology-enabled care that is patient-centered, coordinated, efficient and effective.  Center staff identify and evaluate the implementation and adoption of technology-enabled programs, focusing on Mobile Health (mHealth), Remote Patient Monitoring, Care Transitions, and Medication Management, among others.


Completed Projects

Remote Patient Monitoring Demonstration Program

This study evaluates two Remote Patient Monitoring (RPM) pilot projects in order to demonstrate the potential of RPM to increase the quality and efficiency of chronic disease management and post-acute care of older adults.  The initiative also addresses the capacity of RPM to improve health outcomes, including  reducing hospital admissions and readmissions.

Patient Centered mHealth: New Horizons in Diabetes Care in Community Health Centers

This study evaluates the effectiveness of an interactive mobile health information service, Care4Life, in supporting patient self-management of Diabetes by facilitating patient education, behavior change, and improved adherence with standard care practices.  It is part of the McKesson Foundation’s Mobilizing for Health initiative to improve the health of underserved populations with chronic diseases through the use of mobile-phone technology.

Return on Investment of Remote Patient Monitoring Technologies for Older Adults

The Center for Connected Health and CTA are collaborating on advancing the adoption and sustainability of Remote Patient Monitoring (RPM) technologies through the development, implementation and evaluation of a Return on Investment model for congestive heart failure patients.  The ROI tool is an interactive, web-enabled program that assists providers in determining a RPM program’s ROI as well as provides a sensitivity analysis for organizational scenario planning.
