How leading healthcare systems are achieving optimal outcomes by leveraging data, robotics, and machine learning across their surgical service lines.
Healthcare is at an inflection point. Aging populations and the burden of disease are straining health systems and their finances. Critical care team resources –surgeons, anesthesiologists, nurses, and other staff – carry a large and increasing load. Leaders across healthcare face pressure to deliver better clinical, operational, and financial outcomes. While scientific advances from robotics to biology to computing are opening new opportunities to address old and difficult problems, is it enough?
Specifically in the area of surgery, our challenge as an industry is this: How do we help improve outcomes and lower the total cost of care? How do we foster innovation and improve patient outcomes while improving the efficiency and experience of care teams? How do we train the next generation of medical professionals while adopting new technology? How can we reduce variability across all of these areas? These are worthy challenges that require providers, care teams, professional societies, companies, and regulators to work together.
In this session, attendees will hear from leaders at top hospitals, health systems, and societies who have made real gains in their missions to do just that.
