Raising the Digital Trajectory of Healthcare

Should healthcare be more digitized? Absolutely. But if we go about it the wrong way or the naïve way we will take two steps forward and three steps back.
Join Dale Sanders for a 90-minute webinar in which he will describe the right way to go about the technical digitization of healthcare so that it increases the sense of humanity during the journey. The topics he’ll cover include:
  • The human, empathetic components of healthcare’s digitization strategy.
  • The AI-enabled healthcare encounter in the near future.
  • Why the current digital approach to patient engagement will never be effective.
  • The dramatic near-term potential of bio-integrated sensors.
  • Role of the “Digitician” and patient data profiles.
  • The technology and architecture of a modern digital platform.
  • The role of AI vs. the role of traditional data analysis in healthcare.
  • Reasons that home grown digital platforms will not scale, economically.
Most of the data that’s generated in healthcare is about administrative overhead of healthcare, not about the current state of patients’ well-being. On average, healthcare collects data about patients three times per year from which providers are expected to optimize diagnoses, treatments, predict health risks and cultivate long-term care plans. Where’s the data about patients’ health from the other 362 days per year? McKinsey ranks industries based on their Digital Quotient (DQ), which is derived from a cross product of three areas: Data Assets x Data Skills x Data Utilization. Healthcare ranks lower than all industries except mining. It’s time for healthcare to raise its Digital Quotient, however, it’s a delicate balance. The current “data-driven” strategy in healthcare is a train wreck, sucking the life out of clinicians’ sense of mastery, autonomy, and purpose. Healthcare’s digital strategy has largely ignored the digitization of patients’ state of health, but that’s changing, and the change will be revolutionary. Driven by bio-integrated sensors and affordable genomics, in the next five years, many patients will possess more data and AI-driven insights about their diagnosis and treatment options than healthcare systems, turning the existing dialogue with care providers on its head. It’s going to happen. Let’s make it happen the right way.
