The Center for Disease Control defines aging in place as "the ability to live in one's own home and community safely, independently, and comfortably, regardless of age, income, or ability level."
As Health Care continues to improve and prolong our lives, the need for individualized in-home care becomes increasingly important. While there has long been established means of out-of-home care for aging individuals, these can be both costly and heart breaking for family members.
We believe that through your unique talent and innovation there can be a real impact on peoples lives by allowing them to stay at home longer and more safely.
A sub-theme to the event will include the “Internet of Things” (IOT), specifically how uniquely identifiable objects and their virtual representations can help people “Age in Place”.
CajunCodeFest 3.0 invites you to make a lasting difference in the lives of people just like your own grandparents and parents (and someday your own!).
CajunCodeFest partnered with the Louisiana Chapter of HIMSS, a tax-exempt, non-profit corporation focused on providing leadership in healthcare for the management of systems, technology and information. The Chapter promotes an organized forum for continuing education and exchange of ideas amongst its members to improve healthcare information and management systems that support patient care and wellness. The spring conference with top leaders in health care technology will be in conjunction with the CajunCodeFest competition at the LITE Center. Guests are encouraged to intermingle.
