Disruptive digital technologies are improving every step of the healthcare delivery process. These innovations are reducing costs, increasing engagement, and improving outcomes. But some of the more exciting developments in healthcare technology are actually happening outside the hospital. From wearables and IoT-enabled sensors to customized mobile devices, new applications of consumer technologies are helping patients monitor their health practices and improve their health outcomes.
Dr. Rhew will explore how these different technologies are empowering patients to live longer, happier, and healthier lives by transforming healthcare in our homes, our hospitals, and everywhere in between.
