Division of Digital and Informational Technologies

Advances in digital and informational technologies have created opportunities to support family caregivers.    Technological advances involving voice, assistive, financial, and cognitive technologies have helped to remove barriers and have enhanced support and the delivery of services to family caregivers.   In particular, health tracking tools, medication reminders, personal emergency response systems, wireless home monitoring, software applications, and support communities have reduced the burden on family caregivers, and improved the quality of care they provide to their care-recipients.  With recent innovations involving artificial intelligence and virtual reality technologies there will be continued reduction on the burden experienced by long-distance family caregivers.    It is the mission of the Caregiver Coalition Fund of America’s Division of Digital and Informational Technologies to spearhead advances in the above-mentioned fields and to provide family caregivers with reliable access to these technologies.
