Dell Medical School, the United Kingdom’s National Health Service and Kaiser Permanente are looking to industry to reshape community health. Ruben Rathnasingham, Emma Cartmell (Exsede Consulting), Ling Kung (Kaiser Permanente) and Harpreet Sood (National Health Service) discuss their goals for improving patient care in innovative value-based healthcare systems.
Most patients define health in terms of capability (the ability to do what’s important to them), comfort (relief from the pain and anxiety) and calm (reducing or eliminating the chaos in health care). Elizabeth Teisberg and Scott Wallace discuss how prioritizing these three dimensions can offer more effective treatment aligned with patients’ individual needs.
Creative, human-centered approaches in design thinking have become a critical component in efforts to restructure the healthcare system. Internationally recognized design leader Stacy Chang discusses experiments and design solutions being applied to rethinking health.
Health apps and digital resources often target and get used by health enthusiasts, who are already healthier than the populations most in need. Stephen Pont, It’s Time Texas CEO Baker Harrell, UT Austin Associate Professor Michael Mackert and Ryan Lund of Cerebri Al discuss how to engage low-income individuals as active users and create health equity.
DevOps, which integrate software development and IT, are revolutionizing corporate America and could do the same for health care. Seth Feder and Michael Coté of Pivotal Software, Inc. share how DevOps principles can lead to increased efficiency and productivity for healthcare professionals.
Technology can enhance health by making care more convenient and accessible to everyone. David Ring, along with Dell Healthcare & Life Sciences Chief Medical Officer Nick van Terheyden and Seton Healthcare Family Vice President of Virtual Care & Innovation Kristi Henderson, explore the opportunities and potential barriers of technology-based self-care.
Healthcare costs are a leading cause of bankruptcy in the United States, even for insured patients. Chris Moriates, Vineet Arora from the University of Chicago and Neel Shah of Harvard Medical School discuss emerging affordable care solutions and brainstorm ideas on how patients and clinicians can reduce out-of-pocket expenses.
Across Austin and the country, everyday technology (like smartphones and tablets) and digital health products decrease barriers to care and revolutionize the way doctors screen for mental health conditions. In this session, Courtney Bailey and Ryan Sutton of the Hogg Foundation for Mental Health highlight the importance of technology in addressing mental health disparities in multiethnic and multiracial communities.
Eddie Erlandson, Sue Cox and Laura Guenther, founding director of the Center for Leadership & Ethics at the McCombs School of Business, examine 21st-century techniques that create new leaders who will build a healthcare system around people and health. Their talk will outline a re-envisioned healthcare system that relies on physicians repairing the system by placing patients’ health and preferences at the forefront of care.
Kevin Bozic and Beto Lopez — Dell Med experts on surgery, design thinking, health business models and system transformation — discuss how Integrated Practice Units (IPUs) are improving health outcomes, efficiency and patient experience by structuring health care around what’s best for the patient, not what’s most convenient for the doctor.
In this discussion, two of Dell Med’s innovative care leaders —Amy Young and Jose Colucci — explore options for transforming the ways physicians deliver care and examine how women, especially low-income and uninsured women, approach their health.
