HP Presents: What’s up Doc? Empowering Patient First Care Teams on the New Frontier of Care Delivery

The 2020s mark the transition to digital-first healthcare. By 2023, 65% of patients worldwide will have accessed care through a digital front door as healthcare providers look for better ways to improve access, engagement, and experiences across all services. As such, the rapid adoption of virtual reality, 3D print, telehealth, artificial intelligence (AI), microfluidics and other innovative technologies are enabling healthcare providers and patients to access their information conveniently and in real time. Such digital enabled technologies are supporting care coordination across the care continuum, connecting providers and patients, and bringing care to patients when and where it is needed. However, this rapid march to digital transformation has also shone a harsh spotlight on the digital divide in healthcare. According to the Pew Research Center, nearly 1 in 8 Americans lives in poverty, with low-income individuals having lower rates of smartphone ownership (71%), home broadband access (59%), Internet use (82%), and basic digital literacy (53%).Listen in as Fran Ayalasomayajula, HP’s Head of Digital Strategies and Daniel Colling, Global Head of Healthcare Solutions and Practice talk about patient-first technology innovations ranging from VR, 3D Print and AI to Hospital at Home, Point-of-Care Diagnostics and Intelligent Care Coordination. In this episode, we’ll explore what happens when such technologies are developed and intentionally implemented with these communities in mind. This will be an engaging discussion on the new frontier of care delivery, one that brings all providers and patients together and has a positive impact on patient outcomes.

In this episode, we have a combined Q&A about virtual humans and digital therapeutics. We are joined on the virtual stage by Erica Lloyd from Soul Machines and Jessica Shull from Digital Therapeutics Alliance.  Erica shares what she does with Soul Machines, a company dedicated to humanizing AI. With her colleague Shantenu Agarwal, they talk about chatbots and their application in healthcare. The future is in the combination of technologies to create a more empathetic digital person. A digital brain is a system created to understand and react accordingly and process information as an output. Soul Machines, led by Shantenu and Erica, are transforming the industry with their AI products.  Jessica guides us through the digital therapeutics ecosystem. The goal of the Alliance is to engage with every character and stakeholder involved in therapeutics. These are not only the companies; these include patients, clinicians, research institutions, and universities. She also defines what a digital therapeutic is and what they require to be in the market. Digital therapeutics don’t necessarily work on their own. They work better in conjunction with other products like telehealth and sensors.  Join this amazing conversation about digital therapeutics, chatbots, and virtual humans. It may be intimidating, but it is the future of technology!
