PART ONE: "An Overview of the Digital Healthcare Landscape"

WHAT: Networking & Happy Hour Event
WHEN: Wednesday, March 13; 5 to 7 PM
WHERE: Structure Cellars & Winery, SODO Urban Works (3861 1st Ave S, Seattle)

The healthcare landscape is rapidly changing as new digital technologies are emerging and are increasingly integrated into the everyday delivery of healthcare. As patients are taking more ownership in managing their health, consumer-based and patient-facing technologies are at the front of this movement. The electronic health record spans across a health system and has quickly become a central factor in developing an organization’s digital strategy.

Navigating this new landscape can be challenging as the industry is faced with reducing cost, delivering high-quality patient centered care, and better managing limited resources. Come learn more about the digital health landscape from local experts from Xealth, suggestions on how to develop an effective digital strategy, and hear the lessons learned from Swedish of how they are implementing these tools.
