The Reede Scholars

1:00pm – 5:00pm


Digital technologies have transformed how people globally communicate, socialize, learn, work, and increasingly intersect with the healthcare system. From Health Information Technologies (HIT), to wireless gateways and connectivity, biosensors and wearable personal technology, to precision medicine, mHealth, and Artificial Intelligence (AI), these are just a few of the ways 21st century technologies are making our lives better, moving health care toward a patient-centric model. Providers and stakeholders are using digital health to reduce inefficiencies, improve access, reduce cost, and increase quality. Patients and consumers can use digital health to better manage and track their health and wellness related activities.

What lies ahead for health and health care in an era of such rapid healthcare disruption? Will medicine and patients of the future be much different from today due to the development of modern digital technology and mobile devices? Can we expect a transformation of medical practice from the population-based approach treating illness to individualized medicine while genome and digital technologies drive such transformation.

During our Annual Health Equity Symposium, panelists will share how innovative digital tools can improve health, health care, and a rapidly changing healthcare system. Additionally, we will elaborate ways in which providers, payers, and policymakers engage individuals, families, and communities to maximize opportunities to close disparity gaps and influence health equity with digital health technologies.
