He talked about some current social technology research on eldercare, and provided some helpful perspective on economic and social factors as well as public policy. First of all, the professor takes the ophthalmic optometry equipment as an example to illustrate the development of technology and play an important role in achieving human health. Traditional optometry equipment is large and complex, and it is difficult to popularize in remote areas. Eyesite has developed new technology and used portable equipment to easily perform optometry.

他谈到了当前一些关于老年人护理的社会技术研究,并对经济和社会因素以及公共政策提供了一些有益的观点。首先,教授以眼科验光设备为例,说明了技术的发展,对于实现人类健康普及的重要作用。传统的验光设备大而且复杂,在偏远地区难以普及,eyesite公司研制出新技术后,使用便携式设备,轻松进行验光。

 

Then, the professor introduced the tremendous impact of the development of digital health on the field of elderly care. Through a variety of comprehensive health monitoring equipment, early detection of signs of illness in the elderly has been transformed from the treatment of traditional diseases to the prevention of disease. Taking Healthtap as an example, it is pointed out that the current development of high technology has changed the traditional clinical outpatient diagnosis method, which makes many areas with sparse populations can be easily diagnosed through the network. Healthtap automatically diagnoses the disease by entering customers own health information into the network and matching it automatically with the database.

然后,教授介绍了数字健康的发展给老人护理领域带来的巨大影响。通过各种全方位的健康监控设备,及早的发现老人患病征兆,从传统的疾病发生后治疗,发展为疾病的预防。以healthtap为例,指出现在高技术的发展,改变了传统的临床门诊的疾病诊断方法,使得很多人口稀疏的地域可以简单的通过网络,实现疾病的自查诊断。healthtap通过将自身的健康信息输入网络,后台自动与数据库匹配,实现疾病诊断。

 

Finally, taking the status of Indian aged care as an example, the professor elaborated on the importance of coordinating various roles in the social network of the elderly, especially policy makers, care workers and community health workers. In view of the generally low level of education among nursing workers in some countries, the professor proposed that the developing and improving of training program for nursing workers is the most important.

最后,以印度养老护理现状为例,教授阐述出协调老人社会网络中各种角色的重要性,尤其是政策制定者、护工和社区健康工作者。鉴于部分国家护工受教育程度普遍较低,教授提出,发展完善护工的训练计划最为重要。
