Abstract

With the population aging in Korea, an optimal healthcare model for older adults should be developed. Older adults often have multiple chronic medical conditions, which need continuous monitoring for the best care and early detection of acute deterioration. Digital technology can be a solution to the unmet need of management of common chronic medical conditions such as hypertension, diabetes, and heart failure in older adults. Through this strategy, ideal care can be delivered without increased healthcare costs. This review describes the current status of common chronic medical conditions in Korean older adults and discusses the opportunities and challenges associated with digital technology-based chronic disease management.
