Rapidly emerging technological advances could mitigate rising health workforce demand, but will not replace the direct care workforce, according to a new study from UCSF Health Workforce Research Center on Long-Term Care. The report includes a taxonomy of currently available and emerging technology categories based on products sold by 115 companies, in addition to targeted interviews with tech company personnel.
This report assesses which of the emerging technologies may facilitate, replace, or enhance recruitment, training, and retention of the long-term care workforce.
