New Parks Associates research finds that during the COVID-19 pandemic, 29% of US seniors ages 65 and older have used video conferencing services, 27% have used telehealth/remote consultation services, 22% have used a grocery store delivery or pick-up service, and 55% have an online video service subscription.

“The shift toward tech service solutions is very pronounced among seniors ages 65 and older as a result of the COVID-19 pandemic,” said Kristen Hanich, Senior Analyst, Parks Associates. “As just one example, use of telehealth services more than quadrupled among this age group compared to 2019. These changes pervade all aspects of life, including increasing adoption of video conferencing and home delivery services. Companies deploying connected solutions need a comprehensive strategy that crosses multiple industries, including healthcare, automation, and security, to ensure they maximize the value proposition for their solution.”

CONNECTIONS™ Summit features sessions on smart home technology and services, connected health, data privacy, value-added services, and home security. “Home Services: Maximizing Value of Connectivity” examines ways to leverage connected devices to deploy new services, adding consumer value propositions and new revenue opportunities while offsetting the rising costs in manufacturing and deploying connected devices. “Healthcare: Independent Living & Smart Home” explores the vast market opportunity for industry players with a footprint in the home to expand into the connected health space.

Parks Associates surveys 10,000 US broadband households each -quarter, providing a rich data set with trending for at least five years. The firm will feature its market insights and consumer data during the webinars and virtual conferences throughout 2021.
