State and Local Policy Learning Lab: Access to Care From Anywhere Webinar

A dialogue on the opportunities that abound through smart, tech-enabled communities

Nothing has exposed the unmet health and wellness needs of communities quite more clearly than the COVID-19 pandemic. How quickly we seek new, alternative approaches to delivering and accessing healthcare has proven to be critical during these times of global strife.

Over of 80% of healthcare practitioners and the general public expect for technology to improve their wellbeing and support healthy aging. Much of what has proven successful stems from the integration of technology. Enabling access to care through and beyond medical facilities, geographies and even socioeconomic constructs—technology has the potential to address and deconstruct health disparities. Smart frameworks facilitate technology harmonization and access to quality care for everyone, everywhere—including our underserved communities.

Join us as we explore a few of the key societal aspects in which healthcare has been and can be made smart, comprehensive, ubiquitous and sustainable.

At the end of this webinar, you will be able to:

  • Describe what is possible when care services are interwoven into all facets of daily life
  • List the channels that are most ripe for the adoption of technology
  • Outline steps you can take right now to deploy smart enabling technologies that will enhance and extend your care services to more people throughout the communities you serve
