With the implementation of the Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act, there is a necessity to take stock of where the medical community stands on change and innovation, specifically regarding the use of technology. The demand for higher quality health care at a lower cost creates an imminent need for change and innovation in healthcare delivery. Health care has already seen innovations in the tools used to deliver care, including pharmacy products, medical devices, information technology, and biotechnology products. This innovation has changed and continues to change the way healthcare is delivered. This panel will discuss how health systems are using innovation in technology to improve the value of the healthcare they deliver. Examples may include using technology to improve connectivity, patient flow, provider efficiency, and/or quality measurement.
