POLITICO Outside, In
On May 6, Karen DeSalvo, the national coordinator for health information technology at the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services, came together with health care leaders across government, industry and academia to discuss how Connected Health can cut costs and improve quality of care and patient outcomes.
Panelists agreed our health care system is at a tipping point. In order to progress forward, we must: (1) eliminate policy and structural barriers to innovation; and (2) enable individuals to be meaningfully engaged in their care. Public/private partnerships can serve as a driving force behind these necessary systematic changes, allowing technology to dissolve and relationships to emerge.
The discussion, hosted by Philips and POLITICO, was the second of its kind in a year-long series of conversations with innovators who have used real-world solutions to enhance government efficiencies and solve complex problems.
