Abstract/Summary

The COVID-19 pandemic particularly affected social connection through enforced social isolation and loss of regular activities. For health care systems various initiatives have sprung up, leveraging existing technologies to connect people with services, activities and loved ones. Here we review some AgeTech offerings to address social isolation for health care leadership and management to consider. Although connecting older adults to the Internet and digital technology has great potential for extending digitally-mediated provision and activities in new and emerging projects, lessons learnt from the COVID-19 pandemic in respect of implementation and adoption for planning future deployments are noted.
