Abstract: Digital health has added numerous promising solutions to enhance the health and wellness of people living with dementia and other cognitive problems and their informal caregivers. This work aims to summarize currently available digital health solutions and their related characteristics to develop a decision support tool for older adults living with mild or major neurocognitive disorders and their informal caregivers. We conducted an environmental scan to identify digital health solutions from a systematic review and targeted searches for grey literature covering the regions of Canada and Europe. Technological tools were scanned based on a preformatted extraction grid. We assessed their relevance based on selected attributes. We identified 100 available digital health solutions. The majority (56%) were not specific to dementia. Only 28% provided scientific evidence of their effectiveness. Remote patient care, movement tracking and cognitive exercises were the most common purposes of d igital health solutions. Most solutions were presented as mobility aid tools, pill dispensers, apps, web, or a combination of these platforms. This knowledge will inform the development of a decision support tool to assist older adults and their informal caregivers in their search for adequate eHealth solutions according to their needs and preferences, based on trustable information.
