Geek Girls Dinner-Innovations in Healthcare Technology

As the population becomes more tech-savvy, the healthcare community is racing to keep up with the new demand for patient-centered healthcare technology. Whether it's tweeting questions at your doctor, using telehealth to allow nurses monitor your chronic conditions, or simply tracking your own health statistics over time, we're entering a new age of technological access to our personal healthcare data.

Join us for an informal Q and A session about what's hot right now  in healthcare tech, what's trending, and ultimately, how you can take charge of your own health.

    Oh...patient-centered healthcare technology. Ok, well...your doctor and their staff won't have time to tweet answers to your questions or effectively monitor your chronic conditions if they are spending all of their time trying to use or see information in their it's relevant, sort of. <:o|

    Pain Opportunity:
    Rescue Overworked-By-Their-EHR Healthcare Providers and Save The World! Doctors aren't afraid of or resistant to technology.

    We're put off by or mired in EHR-Induced Family/Personal-Time-Sacrificed-to-Longer-Hours-Spent-Just-Because-
    We're-Using-an-EHR-That-Makes-Us-Take-Waaaaay-Longer-to-See-Fewer-Patients-and-Get-Less-Done Syndrome.
    We used to spend a lot of that EHR-sucking time investigating your symptoms, diseases, treatment options, etc. or reading the latest journal articles or learning/re-learning medicine.

    Fix IT's inability/lack of interest/slowness to give healthcare providers technology the way that we need it (Hint: not at 20 times the amount of time it takes us to do it on paper); and save the world. For extra benefit, focus on not adding unnecessary intermediaries in between the problem and providers getting it done.

    Off Soapbox:
    Also looking forward to meeting all of you! :oD
