Digital transformations in a post-pandemic world
The title of Pande’s keynote presentation is “Digital First Healthcare in a Post-Pandemic World.” The healthcare industry can use technological innovation to streamline physician’s workflows, optimize systems, improve patient outcomes, reduce human error, and lower costs. Better patient engagement increases patient activation and involvement, which means better patient care. But industry experts consider the healthcare industry slow in adopting technologies. Recently, however, the industry has undertaken major alterations to digital healthcare. And one of the main reasons for this is the need for covered entities (CEs) to rely on new technology because of the COVID-19 pandemic.
CEs and patients have had to redefine communication and access at a time when both were difficult. Telehealth was embraced by patients, CEs, and HIPAA as it became clear that appointments could not always be in-person. Access to electronic protected health information (ePHI) increased through secure communication tools such as HIPAA compliant email.
