NHIT Health Equity Breakfast

For generations, we’ve witnessed a widening gap in health outcomes along racial and socioeconomic lines. Communities are looking to health systems for solutions, but nearly 80 percent of our health is influenced by factors outside clinic walls. Called the social determinants of health, these include housing stability, food access, community support, and other socioeconomic factors.

Health systems, along with other service providers and stakeholders, must address these social determinants where people live and work in order to close the health and wellness gap. Collaboration and effective partnerships are critical in establishing and maintaining equitable experiences for all patients, clinicians, and staff alike.

Join this esteemed panel to learn how innovations are changing access, delivery, and coordination of care. During this interactive session you will:

  • Hear how two digital health providers use technology to deliver personalized, high-quality care experiences
  • Learn more about trends in virtual care and how providers are meeting the increasing demand for digital experiences
  • See how technology enables touchless, connected patient journeys across the care continuum
