Innovating Primary Care for a New Future

March 5, 2018
10:10am - 10:40am

In this session, Carolinas HealthCare System will review its journey to create a transformative and innovative model of primary care - one built on value, consumerism, team-based care and thoughtful digital strategy. Importantly, the discussion will address the clinical, operational and business challenges of disruptive innovation within a healthcare organization.

As an example, this session will share key design lessons from Carolinas' Proactive Health practice, which has achieved 80+ percent blood pressure control in 250+ previously uncontrolled hypertensive patients.

Key takeaways:

  • Understand disruptive innovation and emergent strategy in an incumbent healthcare enterprise.
  • Hear about lessons learned from real-world deployment of continuous, collaborative care and personal digital health.
  • Key takeaways from 5 years of person-centered design experience in primary care connected health.

As this session will demonstrate, the continuous learning of an agile, emergent strategy approach goes hand in hand with the outcomes produced by technology solutions.
