Telemedicine and telehealth for older adults amid and beyond the pandemic

In this Article Collection, the journal will attempt to elucidate the digital health technologies being developed to facilitate functional independence throughout older age in a post-pandemic world. These technologies could moderate the socioeconomic effects of population ageing and enhance the quality of life of older people. Understanding and surveying the views and needs of older people regarding these technologies is critical for moving forward. The journal anticipates some analysis of the solutions to post-pandemic challenges and will pursue scholarly content on novel approaches within relevant sub-specialties.

 Older adults and their isolation and illness management during the pandemic

  • Connecting rural elders to healthcare
  • Digital technologies designed specifically to enhance the lives of older people
  • Support strategies for older adults living in an increasingly digital world where loneliness, confusion and anxiety have an increased impact
  • Managing the digital divide
