  • Health 2.0: Digital Technology in Clinical Care

    Friday, March 22, 2013 | 7:45 AM - 6:00 PM
    The New York Academy of Sciences

    Presented by the New York State Department of Health AIDS Institute, the Josiah Macy Jr. Foundation and the New York Academy of Sciences

    Digital technologies, including mobile apps, wearable sensors, robotics, remote learning, and portable diagnostic devices are becoming an integral part of clinical care and medical education and will vastly expand capacities for research and data integration. These prolific and creative technological advances will fundamentally transform provider-patient relationships, point of care, and the practice of medicine.

    The forum will discuss and showcase current and emerging digital technologies in clinical care, especially related to HIV and other sexually transmitted infections. Presentations will focus on strategies and tools designed to improve patient outcomes, provider communications, research, and medical education, as well as legal and ethical issues such as privacy and professionalism in eHealth interactions. This event will NOT address electronic health records, meaningful use, or health IT infrastructure.

    *Reception to follow.
