#HRS2020 Digital Health Summit

VT/VF Summit

Wednesday, May 6 - 10 a.m. – 5 p.m.

Technology and medicine are colliding with an explosion of new advancements in monitoring, diagnosis and disease management. As digital health technologies become more popular and readily available to the general public, we are presented with new opportunities and challenges. How do we address growing awareness and rising levels of expectations held by patients regarding secure access to health care data? During this Digital Health premier session, attendees will hear from experts and pioneers leading the way in the field of digital health tech as they provide guidance, recommendations, and clarity about the safe exchange of data and the navigation of patient-generated data from consumer wearables, apps and other tech. Patients will weigh in with their perspectives, while tech giants discuss how innovations in digital health are creating a new paradigm in patient diagnosis, treatment, and disease management. Their partnerships with healthcare providers will also be emphasized.
