Quality Institute All Council Conference “TeleHealth Equity – Bridging the Digital Divide”

Posted On by

On Wednesday, May 19th from 2:45pm to 5:00pm we’ll come together to discuss TeleHealth Equity – Bridging the Digital Divide. Our keynote speaker Dr. Debra Patt, MD, PhD, MBA, will explore the use of telehealth’s role, achieving digital equity, and ensuring quality of the care. Dr. Patt is a breast cancer specialist in Austin, Texas where she serves as a vice president for Texas Oncology and a clinical professor at Dell Medical School at The University of Texas at Austin.

We’ll hear from a dynamic panel of multi-stakeholder Quality Institute members who will discuss the benefits of telehealth and digital technology as well as how to address barriers to access and use. The panel will focus on actions to achieve equity for those on the wrong side of the digital divide due to age, language, or access to equipment or broadband. The Conference will conclude with live Jazz music to feed our souls. This event is for members and invited guests only –    Register here
