Description

Value-based care requires medical centers to transform business and care delivery models. Working with its strategic partner, AUMC has formed a first-of-a-kind strategic alliance where they apply the latest digital technologies to redesign care paths and enable continuous care. Presenters will describe both the challenges and the opportunities of this ground-breaking work that involves next-generation patient monitoring enabled by wearable biosensors and innovative connected respiratory care.

Learning Objectives: 

  • Identify the ways that providers and industry vendors can collaborate as a spring board for innovation by supporting health systems with delivering long-term affordable care
  • Review how the integration of emerging medical grade connected health technologies (IoT, sensors, wearables) and informatics into care paths can help optimize hospital discharge and decrease length-of-stay and hospital readmission rates
  • Review both the barriers and solutions when integrating connected health technologies with existing health systems
