Transforming Healthcare through Biosensing Technologies.
We are dedicated to addressing the unique healthcare challenges faced by older adults and individuals with chronic health conditions in Canada. With approximately 7 million Canadians aged 65 and older, comprising 20% of the population, there is a pressing need for innovative solutions to improve their quality of life.
It is concerning to note that the majority, 80%, of individuals over 65 years old have a chronic health condition. These conditions not only restrict their ability to carry out daily activities but also threaten their independence and expose them to other negative consequences, such as heart disease, falls, and fractures. Care Anywhere recognizes the urgency of this situation and aims to bring about transformational changes in healthcare delivery through the application of cutting-edge biosensing technologies.
Our mission is clear: we will train the next generation of engineers, computer scientists, and health researchers to design, implement, and apply these biosensing technologies in healthcare. From wearable devices to personalized medicine, our trainees will be equipped with the skills and knowledge necessary to drive this revolution in digital health technology.
Beyond the training aspect, Care Anywhere recognizes the critical shortage of over 60,000 unfilled jobs in the Canadian digital health technology sector. By preparing talented individuals to enter this field, we aim to bridge this gap and meet the growing demand for skilled professionals in the industry.
Mission: The Care Anywhere program will train the next generation of engineers, computer scientists and health researchers to design, implement and apply biosensing technologies to transform healthcare.
Through our activities, we strive to enhance the quality of life for older adults and individuals managing chronic diseases. By enabling real-time measurement of key physiological parameters and connecting these valuable insights to their care teams, we can minimize the overall burden on the healthcare system. By leveraging biosensing technologies, we aim to empower individuals to take control of their health and well-being.
Join us on this transformative journey as we work towards a future where healthcare is accessible, personalized, and connected. Together, we can make a significant impact on the lives of millions of Canadians and revolutionize the way we approach healthcare.
