Tech’s Lessons for Healthcare

Mar 10, 2017

12:30pm – 1:30pm CT

For all of the technological challenges and bureaucratic hurdles, the most important healthcare puzzles are among the most basic: how do you get people to follow their prescriptions, show up to doctor’s appointments, or modify their homes so they can live safely in the place they want to be. Healthcare has failed to address these basic questions in a consistent, widespread way. Now other industries, especially technology-focused ones, are finding answers in the solutions, services and ideas they’ve already deployed in very different sectors. This panel will explore how inventive collaborations with Transportation Networking Companies (TNCs), Short Term Rental (STR) entities and others in the sharing economy can improve health outcomes, reduce costs, and beat healthcare companies at their own game.
