The Convergence of ICT, policy, intermediaries and society to address the next frontier of inclusion, health and ageing

Research output: Chapter in Book/Report/Conference proceedingConference contribution

Abstract

There are considerable innovation challenges within health and social care in order to fully utilise ICT capabilities and technological platforms to improve efficiencies and help deliver more effective services and programmes. Physical activity is the fourth highest health factor by the World Health Organisation and inadequate levels can lead to heart disease, stroke, depression and other conditions. Moreover, mental health-related services are amongst the most expensive cost categories in the health system. Therefore, developing innovative ways in which citizens can reduce their sedentary behaviour in an array of contexts and proactive approach to reducing mental health related conditions are high on the agenda of regional governments. In doing so, the barriers to achieve these health and wellbeing outcomes need to be fully understood and subsequent programmes that converge ICT, policy and society should also aim to demonstrate additionally.
