Australian population aged over 65 years is 14% (3.3 million) and this expected to increase to 21% by 2053 (8.3 million), of which 1.9% to 4.2% is attributed to Australians over 85 years. With increase in ageing, there is high prevalence in long-term health conditions and more likely multiple visits to the doctors or the hospitals, particularly when one's functional condition declines. This adds burden to the already stretched health system such as the overcrowding of emergency departments in hospitals. This is partly due to many ageing patients with high care needs occupying significant number of hospital beds because they are waiting for entry to the limited placements in residential care. To address this increase in ageing population and its impact in the society, the Australian government has funded aged care reforms for initiatives for older community stay at home longer. Recently, this was implemented through consumer directed age care reform. Advances in information and communication technologies, particularly in the advancement of lifestyle technologies and its increased use, show promise in the uptake of telehealth approach to support older people to live longer in their homes. In 2011, CSIRO took the initiative to a develop consumer designed innovative platform that would assist and support the older community in their functional ability and health for day to day living in their home environment. This platform was called the Smarter Safer Homes technology. The Smarter Safer Homes platform infers the Activities of Daily Living information from a passive sensor-enabled environment and correlates the information with home-based health monitoring measurements. The use of sensors enables the information to be captured in an unobtrusive manner. This information is then provided to the individual in the household through an iPad application while information can also be shared with formal and informal carers. The platform has undergone a few pilot studies to explore an objective and individualised approach to Activities of daily living based on an individual's profile and its applicability in multi-resident home setting in individual's in regional Queensland. Furthermore, the platform is being validated in a clinical study for its application in the aged care service in various geographical settings such as in urban and remote communities. This paper describes the platform, outcomes of pilot studies, and its future application.
