Digital health data launched: silver surf's up

Posted 31 March 2017

Older Australians are affluent, health literate and surprisingly proactive in managing their own health. And they are using digital health tool to do so, according to latest research from Accenture, VHA’s digital partner.

The global consulting and professional services company unveiled the research Silver Surf’s Up: senior citizens are riding the digital health wave at a member launch this week (pictured).

The findings signal a critical role for consumer-focused digital technology in the future of aged care, said Accenture’s Ian Manovel, who presented the findings.

The VHA CEO Tom Symondson said the partnership between Accenture and the VHA strengthens our collective voice and leverages our ability to enable effective care.
