Synopsis

The future is already here - it’s just not very evenly distributed


Technology is fundamentally changing society as it becomes more accessible, affordable and capable. Health is no exception, and the potential for meaningful impact is huge. This presentation will describe how digital transformation is delivering on the promise of a more affordable, accessible, and agile health system. Starting from the Quadruple Aim framework, we will use real-world examples to examine technology innovation along the dimensions of engaging patients, empowering care teams, optimizing clinical and operational effectiveness, and transforming the care continuum.
