Sponsored by Providence's Digital Innovation Group COVID-19 is catalyzing digital transformation in many areas of healthcare and creating opportunities for innovators. The impact on the traditional, hospital-centric health system will accelerate business model shifts, new entrants, and the adoption of new technologies. Healthcare’s business model will be the most fundamental shift catalyzed by COVID-19. Health systems MUST reorganize around the unique needs of patients rather than around their own functional areas, and technology has the opportunity to play a critical role. This surge in virtual care brought on by the pandemic has catalyzed an era of expansive care distribution and decentralization. Swift changes in how care is delivered creating a greater need for systems to adopt flexible digital models for patients to access care outside traditional brick-and-mortar health care facilities. Similar to consumer-centric industries being disrupted after cultural catalyzes, healthcare could be facing a future of disruption from external digital forces as a result of these swift transformations from COVID-19. Panelist include Microsoft Corporate Vice President, Research & Incubations Dr. Peter Lee, Providence Digital Innovation Group EVP & Chief Digital Officer Aaron Martin, Pioneer Square Labs Managing Director Julie Sandler and One Medical Chair, CEO & President Amir Dan Rubin. This session will be moderated by Providence Digital Innovation Group Chief Digital Strategy Officer Sara Vaezy.
