2020年初，正如西雅图那是第一个面对Covid-19的美国城市，当地医疗领导人和组织不仅定位了立即行动，而且也是非常充分准备的。最近，Geekwire Studios举办了与当地健康技术高管的讨论，他们做出了批判性决定，以保护技术工具，以保护前线工人和患者在太平洋西北及以后的患者的生活。微软公司副总裁，研究和孵化彼得李博士, Providence EVP & Chief Digital Officer亚伦马丁, One Medical Chair, CEO & PresidentAmir Dan Rubin.reflected on the early collaboration in a discussion led by Providence’s Chief Digital Strategy OfficerSara Vaezy。面板对数字健康技术投资影响的洞察，欢迎Pioneer Square Labs董事总经理Julie Sandler。
讨论始于一个医疗的Amir Dan Rubin的直接重点学习“We can go faster, we can have two and three day product development cycles.” From Providence, Aaron Martin saw this as an opportunity for digital health to contribute solutions, unlike the previous financial crisis. Julie Sandler recounted how she witnessed the business community become inspired by the healthcare sector, riding a roller coaster of funding from spring to summer, with an upward trajectory heading into post-pandemic investing.
Sandler talked of the initial funding pull back from layoffs and furloughs in health tech, and then the rapid resurgence of investments in startups. The result was more funding faster than forecasted pre-pandemic and upward-moving financing trend lines despite the duality of the virus’s economic impact.
Martin将普罗维登斯的文化转移在Covid的发作期间将“亚马逊的日子在Q4期间，除了没有结束”延伸超过六个月。迅速移动以安全地向照顾者部署技术和患者的动机导致了公司之间的流体互动的“组织无边界性”。马丁指出，医疗保健商业模式必须做得好的两种特定方式：第一，Be consumer-centric, be a “retailer in healthcare” and secondly, as an “integrated delivery network (IDN)” health systems must be “exquisitely good” at risk evaluation. Ultimately, there should be “no wrong door” for a patient to find information and needed care.
Rubin advised how equitable technology advances will be needed to make the providers’ “work experience” as good as the patients’ “home experience” to reduce burnout in family practitioners. There must be an elimination of the “burdens of desktop medicine” and allow our physicians, nurses and clinicians to return to “engaging with patients.”
对话继续洞察力和预测如何脆弱ecosystem of医疗保健准备未来的破坏flexible. Health systems need to get off of the “fee-for-service treadmill.” Integration needs to happen now as the industry is now swimming “with the Amazons of the world.” The panel concluded with a discussion on equity in healthcare delivery and attracting and elevating a representative workforce with LGBTQ groups led by peers, hiring “service” oriented people, and ensuring BIPOC leadership to deliver culturally competent care.
