Reimagining Healthcare: Moving from Information Technologies to Innovative Solutions in the Next Decade

Luminare Series: Hosted by Center for Analytics and Technology in Society

  • March 01, 2021 5:00pm - 6:30pm

The UC Davis Center for Analytics and Technology in Society continues its Luminare Series with a conversation on the digitization of healthcare. Given the monumental changes caused by COVID-19, we have never had more questions about healthcare: why is healthcare not efficient and effective, and how and where will technology improve the industry? We will be joined by leaders in Healthcare to discuss how result-oriented innovations, driven by technology, are paving the way for a better tomorrow. 

Tune in to listen to leaders explore the topics of: 

  • Short and long term impact of COVID-19 on healthcare
  • Platforms, data analytics, AI: converting technologies into solutions
  • Democratization of innovations, lack of interoperability, data sharing, and standards, the role of regulations and policy.
  • New modalities of care delivery, unbundling of healthcare services, patient-centric care, the shift from care and cure to wellness.
  • How can UC Davis students and graduates can make an impact in this field?
