Navigating Challenges of Aging Populations: Growing Importance of Telecare in Healthcare Modernization

Back to Blog

Throughout the last decades aging populations are becoming the new norm. From the bustling streets of Tokyo, where seniors already constitute about 28% of the population and expected to grow, to the serene landscapes of rural Europe with 20% of population at the age 65 and older, the demand for senior care is escalating rapidly, intensifying unprecedented pressure on health system. Modernizing healthcare through technology and infrastructural upgrades is vital to address these challenges efficiently as soon as possible.

Facing the challenges of an aging population

As 2030 approaches, the world is bracing for a significant demographic shift, with the global population of people aged 65 and over are estimated to rise from 727 million in 2020 to over 1 billion. This seismic shift – accounting for over 20% of the global population – demands immediate action to modernize healthcare services.

Healthcare organizations are at a critical juncture, facing the pressing need to prepare their infrastructure and technology for the significant impact the aging population is expected to have on healthcare systems. Governments around the world must recognize the urgency of the situation and allocate resources or provide the environment for the private sector to support changes to healthcare systems. By investing in technological infrastructure and providing incentives for the adoption of telecare and digital health technology, governments can facilitate the transition to a more efficient and effective digital healthcare system. Proactive measures are essential, and modernization of healthcare and senior care services is inevitable.
