Embracing the Future of Healthcare with CIO Sarah Richardson

May 14, 2021: What happens if you can't afford healthcare? If the pandemic did nothing else, it really uncovered the need for true empathy, to be present, to listen, to communicate and to understand what people's individual circumstances are. It put a greater focus on the advocacy of helping people to truly be healthy. Sarah Richardson, CIO for Tivity Health talks about her new role and how she is transforming the organization from a healthcare services provider to a platform engagement and high-performing software development shop. There’s a TON of money flowing into health tech. 15.3 billion in 2020. Where is the potential for that money to have the greatest impact in healthcare? How will cybersecurity, analytics, AI and automation change over the next 12 months? And which area needs the most attention right now?

Key Points:

  • I'm a big fan of create your own outcomes. Create your own destiny. Reinvention is something we are responsible for personally. Sometimes you find it, sometimes it finds you but either way you put it out there in the universe. [00:17:25] 
  • How are we accelerating digital engagement and digital health? [00:25:00] 
  • The pandemic changed behaviors in a lot of  ways. Our personal behaviors but specifically clinicians behaviors and patients' behaviors. [00:33:05] 
  • Cybersecurity has had 41 billion dollars worth of investments in the past decade. Digital health has had 53 billion. But data intelligence has had over 79 billion. [00:38:15]
