This report analyzes how technology can be used to monitor the fragile and elderly population both in their homes and long-term care facilities. It first analyzes the market needs and interest in aging-at-home technologies, assesses the readiness of the technology itself, followed by close examination of service sectors and potential payment models. The report concludes with the author’s forecasts and recommendations for new market entrants.

“Technology has advanced home-based eldercare to a whole new level, but potential beneficiaries are still unaware of it,” said Harry Wang, analyst. “There is this demand gap to fill, but a technology-stamped eldercare model has to weave through many hidden business risks to truly put the power of technology into seniors’ hands.”
