One of the few constants in life is change, and nowhere is that more true than healthcare. Patient loads are larger. New digital channels bustle with information and compete for doctors’ attention. New technological innovations launch on a weekly basis, or so it seems. Patients are becoming ever more empowered, attending consultations with their own biometric data in hand, and breakthrough technologies in artificial intelligence and virtual reality are major disruptive forces.
In this opening leadership panel, our expert speakers discuss how healthcare organizations are:
- Implementing and enabling these new technologies.
- Uncovering and addressing the associated opportunities and barriers.
- Assessing what must be done to help physicians and other clinicians adapt to this evolving healthcare paradigm.
