The speakers will provide an update on cross- sectoral discussions held as part of NEHI’s “Healthcare Without Walls” project to identify work force and human factor challenges resulting from increased availability and utilization of digital health, telehealth, remote monitoring, artificial intelligence, and cognitive computing technologies. The speakers will also engage the participants in a discussion around possible solutions, model best practices and tools to address the challenges to enable future progress today.
