Enhancing seniors' health-related quality of life

Yuxi Vania Shi, Sherrie Yi Komiak, Paul Komiak
2020 International Journal of Research In Business and Social Science  
Centered on the concept of HRQL and grounded on task-technology fit (TTF) theory, this paper builds a framework of useful virtual HIT in the context of long-term care for seniors.  ...  The key questions are (1) what kinds of virtual HIT will be useful for seniors and (2) how these HIT will affect senior citizens' health-related quality of life (HRQL)?  ...  9 Another direction can be digging deeper on one or more designing elements, and investigating how these elements help senior people for better access to and quality of health assistance.  ...
