CHICAGO (PRWEB) September 21, 2020
Ziegler, a privately held investment bank, is pleased to announce the publication of its new white paper, “Understanding the Technology Ecosystem for Senior Living & Care” authored by Clayton Wilson, a research assistant at Ziegler, and Lisa McCracken, Ziegler’s director of senior living research and development.
The COVID-19 pandemic has dramatically impacted nearly all aspects of the senior living and care ecosystem, and as challenges continue to mount, many market participants are relying on technology solutions to help combat the far-reaching effects of the virus. With this in mind, Ziegler believes it is critical that senior living providers, owners and operators understand the scope of technologies available to their residents and staff. As such, Ziegler developed this whitepaper to help educate the sector and define the array of relevant healthcare technology solutions available in today’s market.
Within the paper, the authors outline a number of key trends driving the growth of technology in the longevity economy, including the effects of the COVID-19 pandemic, increased technology adoption amongst aging adults, projected caregiver shortages and labor-related challenges, and data- driven evidence that technology can help enhance care delivery. The authors also provide a high- level overview and explanation of select key technology subsectors that are particularly relevant and/or emerging within the current senior living market, including telehealth offerings, communication and engagement solutions, solutions that address labor-related challenges, and others.
This whitepaper is the first document in what will be a series of technology-related publications from Ziegler. To help senior living and care providers and operators better understand the ecosystem of technology available to the smart aging community, Ziegler expects to publish supplemental white papers that will review given technology subsectors in more depth and detail.
