The graying of the population and uncontrolled healthcare costs are posing a great challenge for science and society. Movement of the focus of healthcare out of the acute high cost hospital setting is required in order to meet this challenge. This can be achieved through development of new models of healthcare that are based on early assessment and intervention and in the community. Judicious use of technology can underpin these new models of care to drive a more efficient healthcare system that enables older people live independently for longer in their own homes with a better quality of life. In this paper we describe the aims and outputs of an ageing research centre that brings industry and academic partners together in order to develop technology enabled assessment and intervention protocols for future models of care.
