In this webinar, we’ll speak with Dr. Mohsen Saidinejad, Associate Professor of Emergency Medicine and Pediatrics at the David Geffen School of Medicine at UCLA. Saidinejad, who is also director of the patient experience at Harbor-UCLA Medical Center and chair of the Pediatric Committee for the American College of Emergency Physicians, will speak about his clinical and research experience using mobile and connected health tools to provide hospital aftercare for patients who have been discharged from the emergency department. He'll also discuss potential technology strategies to help engage patients with their ongoing chronic care.
The public inquiry into the handling of the COVID-19 pandemic, chaired by Baroness Hallett, has consulted on the terms of reference and made its recommendations to government which should be finalised later this year.

This has led to both patients and doctors incurring lengthy wait times often until the next day to learn the results, as well as myriad other inefficiencies.
The "old fashioned way" no longer works. Most firms still operate health plans the old fashioned way without connecting the dots between plan data and predictable health risk exposures - even though studies show that over 70 percent of costly illnesses are predictable. Under the old fashioned scenario, plans are still administrated without the benefit of leading edge technology that easily measures and manages workforce health risk that is based on member engagement and automation.
