Digital Innovations in Healthcare: The Role of Telemedicine and Artificial Intelligence

April 23 @ 12:00 pm - 1:30 pm EDT

This webinar offers an overview of how digital innovations reshape healthcare, with a focus on telemedicine and Artificial Intelligence (AI). Beginning with telemedicine, Dan Zeltzer will present the impacts of increased patient access to primary care providers via telemedicine following the surge in adoption around the early days of the COVID-19 pandemic, followed by a study on the adoption of a digital device for home examinations that augments telemedicine visits. Following this, David Cutler will present papers on how AI might affect clinical and non-clinical aspects of care, drawing on past health care experiences such as with EMRs and cross-industry AI applications. He will then discuss key issues including regulation and payment policy. Overall, this session aims to provide a nuanced understanding of how digital innovations are catalyzing change in healthcare utilization, quality, and costs.
