Janet King and Leonard D’Avolio, Assistant Professor at Brigham and Women’s and Harvard Medical School, will convene to discuss the results of a recent HIMSS Media survey, which polled healthcare providers on their outlook for the future of healthcare IT, with a focus on disruptive technologies. The survey explores the importance of each aspect of the quadruple aim, the role of technology in advancing key goals, the use/adoption of technologies like cloud computing, AI/Machine Learning, IoT and blockchain, and the implications of those technologies for the future of healthcare. Leonard, a healthcare tech visionary, will provide commentary on the results, and how he sees technology shaping the future of healthcare.
After investing considerable effort in managing throughput, many hospitals and health systems today have created a more coordinated inpatient experience. But as hard as it is to create a harmonious environment within a hospital's walls, unifying patient care outside those walls is exponentially more difficult. NewYork-Presbyterian Hospital has adopted an innovative population health management strategy that is helping them build a better healthcare system outside the hospital, driving a transformational shift in patient care delivery.
The fifth meeting of the series proposes to discuss and analyze the new challenges facing health systems that the COVID-19 pandemic has created and that have affected the conditions of access, coverage, and results in the field of public health.
Explosive growth in the volume and complexity of health data, and growing clinician and patient expectations of its actionable use, is placing enormous demands on and stretching the limits of, current computing models. By placing compute resources at or near the growing number of data capture points, edge computing offers an innovative complement to data center and cloud-based data analytics that drives a more responsive, reliable, and agile IT infrastructure.
