1:45 – 3:05 PM:

Caregivers are our country’s backbone – and that back is breaking. Can Technology save the day?     

Alexandra Drane wil lead a interactive workshop on creating solution for caregivers. How we help those who are helping the sick will define our generation-and yet few technological solutions have taken off. Why? Is the task too complicated? The reality of each situation unscalable? Maybe what caregivers need most is empathy-is that a job for technology? Some say yes, some say no-will be interesting to hear what you say. Let’s think hard together on how to help our nations unsung hero, the caregiver.

 Alexandra Drane, Founder, Eliza Corp and Engage with Grace

How to develop technologies and solutions that restore joy back to the practice of medicine.

Bridget Duffy, MD, co-founder of ExperiaHealth and now chief medical officer of Vocera Communications Inc., which acquired ExperiaHealth, will lead an interactive session focused on the “quadruple aim.” Dr. Duffy defines the quadruple aim as process and technology innovations that address the triple aim while restoring joy back to the practice of medicine. In this session, she will showcase a methodology to engage physicians in partnership with nursing to identify gaps in the human experience by listening more effectively to the voice of patients and families. Dr. Duffy will also share evidence-based solutions and guide attendees on ways to deploy techniques that innovate around what is most broken in healthcare, including communication, care coordination, trust, relationship and provider burnout. At the end of this breakout session, participants will be able to lead their own teams through mapping and design workshops to identify technologies and processes that hardwire humanity and improve outcomes.
