- The future of digital health and virtual care was the topic in the latest in a series of panel discussions about technology bridging divides, sponsored by Dell Technologies.
- A chief technology officer, a medical-school dean and epidemiologist, and a neonatologist each shared their views about autonomous healthcare, with surprising results.
- Watch a video of the full discussion below.
Over the past few months, people around the world have been forced to consider which services they regularly seek out are “essential.” Few expected that consideration to be applied to in-person medical care.
But as more non-emergency healthcare services are pushed into the realm of “non-essential,” telehealth and other digital health tools have stepped in to fill gaps, say the experts who participated in “Autonomy on Call: The Future of Digital Health,” a recent virtual panel discussion.
Watch the video of the event below.
Experts on the panel included John Roese, chief technology officer for Dell Technologies; Dr. Clay Johnston, dean of Dell Medical School; and Dr. Anthony Rudine, director of neonatology research at St. David’s Medical Center in Austin, Texas. The discussion was moderated by JP Mangalindan, a technology journalist.
In the full conversation, hear Dr. Rudine reflect on the growing comfort level with virtual care he is witnessing among patients, who are becoming more willing to trade infrequent face-to-face interactions with a physician for the more constant monitoring presence digital healthcare tools can provide. Epidemiologist Dr. Johnston discusses possible autonomous applications for contact tracing and other aspects of public health. Roese shares predictions with a technology perspective for future waves of digital-health innovation, more tightly focused on improving patient outcomes.
