    This panel will examine how digital technology might transform how we age as a society, including how we provide elder care. Emerging technologies—such as those that track vital signs, medication usage, activity levels, and falls; drive cars autonomously; and arrange on-demand home health care—have the potential to let older adults lead more independent lives while still meeting their medical and social needs. However, emergent technologies also raise new ethical, practical, and legal concerns, including those related to privacy, safety, quality of care, and reimbursement. Panelists from the fields of health law, elder law, privacy law, as well as industry, will analyze these issues from a variety of perspectives.
