  • Alzheimer's is the most expensive disease in America, and nearly USD 600 billion per year is spent in direct costs in US alone. 
  • This paper discusses a platform approach—possible non-pharmacological interventions that can be managed using digital health technologies—reduce the disease burden and positively impact patients. 
  • A mash-up of sensor data, electronic patient-reported outcomes (ePROs), clinical data, and physician’s inputs help create a holistic end-to-end care model, empowering patients with Alzheimer's disease.
  • Future opportunities in areas like AI-based personalized treatments, holistic diagnosis, native wearables, and drug discovery, could play a critical role in minimizing the impact on independent living.
