Jean-Pierre Auffret of the George Mason University School of Engineering reviewed and analyzed the status and potential of information and communications technology for healthcare in aging societies including the Americas, Europe, Africa and Asia. Many developed economies are actively planning and adjusting for aging societies including Japan, Korea and Germany as well as the U.S. These countries have established healthcare and pension systems, community based senior services, and robust information and communications technology and mobile ecosystems which provide the flexibility for healthcare, social inclusion and labor productivity.
