Jockey Club Community eHealth Care Project

The population in Hong Kong is ageing, and the number of older people with chronic conditions continues to grow. In this relation, The Hong Kong Jockey Club Charities Trust has adopted a proactive approach to strengthen the support for senior citizens, and has earmarked over HK$340 million to carry out the five-and-a-half-year “Jockey Club Community eHealth Care Project” together with the Senior Citizen Home Safety Association (SCHSA), the CUHK Jockey Club Institute of Ageing (IoA), and Jockey Club School of Public Health and Primary Care and various NGOs. The Project adopts an innovative approach to encourage the elderly to build self-management habits and gain a better understanding of their own health.

Objectives:

  • To apply eHealth and digital health solutions to empower older people to build self-management habits
  • To promote elderly centres as the first point of contact for detecting and addressing the health and social needs of the elderly for healthy ageing
  • To pilot eHealth and digital health technology to improve quality of life for the elderly through innovative approach, and to collect, aggregate and analyse the health characteristics and patterns of the elderly through data analytics.
