CIOs Tackle Barriers to Innovation, Telehealth Integration, Analytics and More
Structural and nontechnical barriers to innovation are a big reasons why technical innovation is so challenging. The need to integrate telemedicine quickly and an opportunity for a better patient care model caused a digital transformation road map to accelerate. The COVID-19 crisis put laser focus on how clear it is that data and advanced analytics can be powerful weapons in the fight against pandemics.
The example of telehealth highlights the importance of advocacy at multiple levels of government to simplify the complex regulations that make it such a challenge to use the technologies that are prevalent in so many other fields of business, he insisted.
"Going forward, linking clinical and travel data with personal data collected from social media, such as family history and lifestyle habits, it's possible to create detailed predictive models relative to individual risk profiles and health outcomes," he said.
