Healthcare is a maze. How do we provide higher quality healthcare to more people while simultaneously lowering the cost care delivery? The night will explore how emerging technologiescan advance the practice of medicine, improve health outcomes for patients, and empower the bottom lines of healthcare organizations.
The second hour will be dedicated to an introduction to design thinking in healthcare, guided by the question, “how do we better understand the healthcare system through the lens of patients and healthcare providers, and use this information to design solutions that can address these issues at a more fundamental level?”
