2019 Tapia Conference

Leveraging Technology to Improve Healthcare

Thursday, September 19, 2019 — 3:00PM - 4:00PM


It is an exciting time to be in healthcare technology! A growing number of our medical records are in electronic formats. Advances in sensors and displays provide much more data to help train and support both patients and providers in their everyday health related tasks. There is also a large set of data that is not strictly health-related, but provides insight into a person’s health, including text messages, data from exercise trackers, and recorded speech. Please join us for this birds of a feather where we will consider together the opportunities and challenges ahead for using technology to improve health. We will consider topics such as: difficulties working with health care data, ensuring that the benefits of technology healthcare extend to those in underserved populations such as those in rural settings or in socioeconomically disadvantaged groups, and ethical considerations of security, privacy, and “doing no harm” in a healthcare context.
