mmHealth Intelligence: Penn Gets $20M to Study Role of Remote Patient Monitoring for Alzheimer’s

From mmHealth Intelligence: Researchers from Philadelphia-based University of Pennsylvania have received a grant from the National Institute on Aging (NIA) that will help further their research about the use of remote patient monitoring to improve at-home care for individuals living with Alzheimer’s disease and older adults. “Penn is uniquely poised to serve as a research and innovation accelerator based on our expertise in geriatric medicine, aging, Alzheimer’s disease, and biomedical informatics,” Karlawish stated in the press release. “We aim to advance the development of effective solutions that will be used in the real world and ultimately improve the lives of older adults and their caregivers.” The project is expected to receive $20 million in grants over the next five years from the NIA, which is a division of the National Institutes of Health (NIH). The grants will go toward various pilot projects that will focus on using technology and artificial intelligence to aid in care management for the targeted populations. Older adults, adults living with Alzheimer’s, and adults with similar diseases, such as Lewy Body Disease, stand to benefit from the remote patient monitoring technologies, the researchers said.
