It is nice to see that the AARP generation, of which I am a part of, is getting some attention in the tech community. However, with other mundane issues involving healthcare such as the lack of expansion of Medicaid in certain states, including the state I live in (NC) and all that touch it, this is all a moot point because when the premiums and deductibles are not afforded, Medicare in NC is only good to keep the Affordable Care Act penalties away. That doesn’t help anyone, but TPTB could care less because they “got theirs”, want more, and have no concern for those not so fortunate.
A growing number of apps and devices are designed to help manage care of older patients, but the nagging reality is that they’re going unused. At least for now.
