Our society has undergone a digital transformation and changed the expectations of both patients and providers. Healthcare has been slow to adopt digital technologies, only now emerging from the first phase, which is digitization. At the same time, our health systems are challenged with rising cost, chronic disease, workforce pressures and productivity demands. Using the framework of the quadruple aim, this presentation will describe the role of technology in new models of care that address the imperatives of patient engagement, clinician productivity, population wellness and lower cost delivery. Understand how global trends will change the care experience in the near future, leveraging technologies like artificial intelligence, virtual care and mixed reality.
