How Data and Empathy Can Improve Health Outcomes
Sunday, March 13
12:30PM - 1:30PM
110 E 2nd St
For too long, the healthcare industry has been crippled by inefficiencies, fear, bureaucracy and avoidable medical error and it’s often the patients who pay the price. Misalignment between payers and providers mean few solutions have emerged to solve these problems. However, there’s a new wave of organizations focused on filling gaps in care by combining data with an empathetic approach to drive the systemic change that ultimately improves lives.
In this session, panelists will discuss the ways in which traditional healthcare companies have fallen short when it comes to patient care and what is being done now to combat the status quo and save lives.
