COVID-19: Transforming the Healthcare Ecosystem

COVID-19 has disrupted the entire healthcare ecosystem, and consumers, payers, providers, and vendors are changing their attitudes, activities, and plans in response. The digital and connectivity foundations laid over the last decade have been put to the test, supercharging investment, deployments, familiarity, and usage of connected health solutions, including telehealth and remote patient monitoring, solutions for seniors and their caretakers, and online fitness and wellness platforms. The COVID-19 crisis has also exposed how much work remains to be done to integrate connected health into the fabric of healthcare access and delivery.

Telehealth and RPM: Moving to the Core of Healthcare Delivery

The COVID-19 pandemic has thrust telehealth solutions to the forefront of health care. Consumer preference for in-person over remote care suddenly flipped under pandemic conditions and solutions enabling providers to reach patients at home have become a necessity for delivering care.

The technology needed for convenient, high-quality, video-supported remote consultations in the comfort of consumers’ homes is established and physician reimbursement has expanded. This session addresses the sudden uptake of telehealth, and the many issues needing attention, including the physician experience, integration of connected medical devices to expand visit limitations, and the prospect for consumers’ ongoing use of telehealth services after the pandemic circumstances have past.

COVID-19: Seniors, Caregiving, and Independent Living Solutions

COVID-19 exposed the vulnerability of our senior population. In addition to the high risks of infection, the necessity of social distancing exacerbates seniors’ social isolation and makes family caregivers’ jobs more difficult. Demand for communication, telehealth, and independent living solutions to assist seniors in living well and safely at home has never been greater. This session explores how service and technology providers are responding to this new demand and what the independent living market will look like coming out of the COVID-19 crisis.

Even in the B.C. Era (Before COVID), most people wanted to age in the comfort of their own home. Today, one-third of all U.S. Coronavirus deaths are nursing home residents or workers, and even fewer people want to risk their lives by leaving home. However, the cost of homecare has risen to an average of $51,000 per year, unaffordable to many families. Technology can dramatically reduce the cost of 24/7 homecare while also reducing loneliness and depression suffered by many seniors in this era of social distancing. It can improve the safety of professional caregiving for both the caregiver and recipient by enforcing measures such as hand washing and temperature checking. And it can be paid for through veteran’s benefits, Medicare Advantage/Medicaid reimbursement, insurance discounts, and other programs and become affordable to the mainstream.

Mark Dunning, CEO of CPI, describes the fast-changing landscape of homecare including finding innovative ways to pay for these critical services. Gene Wang, CEO of People Power, describes new software that protects people from COVID-19, alerts on emergencies such as falls without requiring wearables, and connects people in ways that reduce anxiety and depression

The traditional healthcare system cannot deliver on the promise of consumer-centric care with a facility-first mindset. Yet the healthcare ecosystem does not have the assets or experience to provide home services.

Tracking Health: Technology, Privacy, and Pandemic

There has been little more uncertain in these uncertain times than the metrics, sources, reporting, and validity of data surrounding the COVID-19 pandemic. Yet accurate data and modeling are critical to decision making for policy makers, public health officials, care providers, businesses, and ordinary citizens. Data derived from tracking technologies – rather than manual reporting – have the advantage of known parameters and a high confidence in accuracy. Consumer technology giants are leading the way (and collaborating) to leverage their technology platforms to enhance public health. However, consumers have real concerns about the privacy of their data and the wisdom of participating in such programs. This session explores consumer attitudes to data sharing and industry perspectives on the valuable and proper role of technology and data analytics in tracking and guiding public health.
