Abstract

Climate change is challenging our way of lives. Rising global temperatures are triggering increases in the frequency and severity of extreme climatic events, such as floods, droughts, & heat waves and resulting in unprecedented increase in economic cost and human impact. The environmental and health research clearly suggest the linkage between global warming and increase in heat-related mortality, particularly in low-latitude countries, such as India, where heat waves will become more frequent and populations are especially vulnerable to these extreme temperatures. The dire consequence of global warming and increase temperature mortality rates is unequivocally faced by the most vulnerable population, Senior Citizens, due to lack of proactive insights and timely availability of healthcare services. Our groundbreaking and innovative proposal is to continuously synthesize most venerable senior citizens medical & diagnostic Electronic Health Records (EHR) data to identify highly susceptible senior citizens to heat waves so as proactively deliver actionable recommendations to family and primary care medical members to prevent negative effects of heat-waves.
