Carbon Health, Amwell and El Camino Health C-level executives and presidents join us
On July 1, Vator, along with HP, will be holding the Future of Virtual Care event as part of the Invent Health series. We will also hold a separate Q&A Town Hall session with select speakers on June 24 (get your tickets here!)
The #inventhealth salons are quarterly “intimate” events, where the audience and select speakers interact around one topic. Topics have included “Mental Health”, “Reinventing the doctor’s role”, “Future of clinics”, “Lifestyle”, etc and are discussed by influencers from various backgrounds to provide a 360-degree perspective. The goal is to create an environment conducive to creating connections amongst guests and to have a solid discussion and/or debate around one area of healthcare that’s ripe for innovation.
The topic this quarter is: “The Future of Virtual Care.” We live in a data-rich world in which technology is gathering huge swaths of population data including our own unique real-time inputs that combined can generate incredible new insights about our health. Moreover, due to COVID-19, society has had to embrace telehealth and remote services as a new form of lifestyle and care procedure to reduce virus transmissions. What are these virtual care protocols, and new devices in the home designed to engage and communicate with us, monitor and measure our activity, to ultimately collect, organize and analyze?
