Health Tech Summit: Day Two

Health Tech Summit: Day Two

Never has there been more of an opportunity to leverage technology to propel the power of the patient and positively influence the future of healthcare. In partnership with OTRADI, OBI, and the Israel Consulate General to the Pacific Northwest, TAO’s hosted Day One of the Health Tech Summit featuring individuals and companies that are tackling the healthcare problems of tomorrow through the deployment of tech and innovation, in a way that can drive long-lasting, user-centric change.

Session one: design & equity

It has been said that technology is the great equalizer in medicine, improving access for all. And that innovation, powered with human-centered design technology, process and people will have the greatest impact to achieve more equitable outcomes.

The rapid expansion during the pandemic allowed all to recognize the potential of telemedicine to improve equitable care delivery and access. But promising technological advances can also have unintended consequences such as perpetuating health and health care disparities for under-resourced populations.

Our first session for the second day of the Health Tech Summit was a virtual conversation featuring companies and organizations who are tackling the disparities in health care using modern technology-focused platforms to serve people’s individual needs with more consumer friendly, personalized experiences.

SESSION TWO: ARTIFICIAL INTELLIGENCE & DATA

As it’s being developed and adapted for an ever-growing variety of specialized uses, machine learning to robotics to wearable sensors used to detect disease, AI holds the promise to help reshape all sectors of healthcare.

Applying advanced technologies to make sense of an ever-increasing store of data, automate operations that previously required manual processing, and predict patient outcomes at high rates of accuracy, enabling clinicians to be more proactive in treating patients and mitigating further risk of disease progression.

The final panel of the Health Tech Summit talked about the future of healthcare and what new advances are possible featuring innovative companies and organizations who are transforming clinical and business processes within the healthcare system.
