About Technology Crossroads
National eHealth Collaborative in partnership with InfoComm International, is proud to announce the inaugural Technology Crossroads Conference, which will take place in Washington, DC on November 27 and 28, 2012.
The first of its kind, this conference will explore the intersection between audiovisual (AV) and health information technologies (IT) to spotlight the many ways in which cutting-edge AV technologies and health IT breakthroughs are working together to accelerate healthcare transformation.
PricewaterhouseCoopers reports that by 2019, around one-fifth of the United States’ gross domestic product will be healthcare spending with a substantial amount of that money attributed to new regulations promoting mobile health apps and other information technology. According to ComputerWorld, “in 2010,health providers spent $88.6 billion on developing and implementing electronic health records (EHRs), health information exchanges, and other health IT initiatives.”
In the AV industry, healthcare is the fastest growing customer segment with $959 million spent in 2009 to a projected growth of $2.6 billion in 2015.
During the conference, keynote speakers, panel discussions, case studies and technology demonstrations will examine the many uses of AV products and services in various healthcare settings, including telemedicine and telehealth, surgical video, mobile and personal connected health tools, remote patient monitoring, medical instruction and network security.
Forward-looking education sessions will examine the impact of data liberation on a community’s ability to support and encourage healthy behavior, the role of technology in improving patient-provider communication and patient education, and how healthcare providers can utilize AV and health IT tools to enable a “smart medical practice.” In one especially exciting session, distinguished health IT leaders will team up with AV experts for an interactive program that matches up innovative technology solutions with “What I Wish I Had in My Hospital…”
