Telecare solution to Taiwan's aging society: health minister

By 2050, 33 percent of Taiwan’s population will be over 65, said Council for Economic Planning and Development Minister Ho Mei-yueh. “It is not only a serious problem but also a great business opportunity.”

She noted that if Taiwan can deal with the problem as soon as possible by developing a well-organized telecare system, the implementation of such a system will facilitate the development of the health 3C industry – health-implemented computers, health-implemented communication technology and health care electronics – and Taiwan will then be able to export its technology and experience to other countries.
