“These clinicians on the front lines have massive amounts of information coming at them and they have very complex tasks that they have to complete in their everyday work. So, I think that the promise of clinical technology has the ability to bring a lot of efficiency to their daily work and ultimately to enhance the quality and the safety, the accuracy, of what they’re doing every day.”
“As all of these conveniences are coming and this technology continues to advance, I’m really interested to see how our desire for privacy kind of comes up against our desire for convenience.”
“One of the legacies that we got from the pandemic was that we’re still struggling with these incredible staffing shortages… So, it’s going to be really important that we leverage artificial intelligence, block chain, we advance on interoperability, because we have to bring efficiency or we’re not going to be able to care for everybody that needs care.”
