SXSW: Panel: Heal Thyself! How Tech Improves Health & Self-Care
arch 2017

Health is active and matter-of-fact, not passive and magical. Technology can enhance health by narrowing gaps in care and tailoring care to people’s lives. Those with limited resources may need access. Those with more resources might benefit from less care. Communication technology can transform healthcare, as it has countless other industries, by helping physicians and other providers transfer their expertise directly to those who need care. Benign, preference-sensitive conditions such as tennis elbow might even be entirely self-managed in the near future. This panel will explore the opportunities and potential barriers to improved health via technology-based self-care.

Hospital System Challenges: Insurance & Electronic Record Training

While a range of challenges face the efficiency of hospital management, the collection of patient data health does not flow among healthcare systems in a cohesive or standardized way. Entities within the healthcare system face challenges when collecting race, ethnicity, and language data from patients, enrollees, members, and respondents. Explicitly expressing the rationale for the data collection and training staff, organizational leadership, and the public to appreciate the need to use valid collection mechanisms may improve the situation. Nevertheless, some entities face health information technology (Health IT) constraints and internal resistance.
