A Person-Centered Future for Healthcare

Given the rise in data analytics, machine learning and electronic health records, individuals are being looked at from a number’s perspective, instead of a human perspective. With the increased investment in technology through system transformation efforts, there is a risk that person-centered care will be lost in emerging healthcare models. 

Now, in the face of COVID-19, where applications like telehealth and remote patient monitoring are even more essential, how do you keep the humanity in healthcare? Panelists will discuss ways to maintain and improve the human experience.

Addressing Mental Health in the Time of COVID-19

While COVID-19 has taken a major physical and economic toll on communities, the pandemic -- and the impact of social distancing to people’s jobs and home life -- is also having a major impact on people’s mental wellbeing. Prescriptions for anti-anxiety drugs are up 34% from mid-Feb to mid-Mar and calls to the federal disaster distress hotline have seen a nearly nine-fold increase. As more people seek out support, how are healthcare systems, and technologies, rising to meet immediate needs, as well as consider longer term solutions?


David Feinberg, MD, head of Google Health and psychiatrist by training, will share his perspective about the barriers and emerging opportunities to leverage technology to improve mental health awareness and support.
