About the event

This seminar will focus on the use of digital health technologies during the Covid-19 pandemic including telemedicine, and what the prospects are for using such technologies in patient care moving forward post-pandemic. Digital health transformation prior to the pandemic was moving slowly in the United States and abroad. However, the pandemic accelerated change as care needed to be delivered in the midst of lockdowns, unvaccinated populations, and rising fears about meeting in person. How successful has the use of different digital health technologies been in providing cost-effective, high quality patient care? What can we expect the next iteration of digital health implementation to look like, and what challenges remain? The seminar will address these questions with a focus on the U.S. case.
