McLean’s Ipsit Vahia on Radio Sensors, Machine Learning, and the Patient (TIPS 2017)

The implications of a rapidly growing population of older adults on health care costs, housing, and public policy are well-recognized. The world of aging is at the forefront of innovation in the use of technologies to support independent living, maximized functioning, and improvements in cost, efficiency, and personalization of clinical care. This session focuses on exploring how the worlds of aging, technology, and mental health can intersect and what might be the most fruitful spaces to explore within this domain to lead us to a better understanding of mental health, the brain, and behavior.

This talk was part of the 2017 Technology in Psychiatry Summit, sponsored by the McLean Institute for Technology in Psychiatry on November 6-7, 2017, at the JB Martin Conference Center, Harvard Medical School. Part of panel on Digital Technology in Practice: Applications in Geriatric Health.
