Live at MATTER: Digital Health x Health Equity Panel: Reinvent a More Equitable Future
May 8, 11:00 am
About this event
With a staggering $93 billion in excess healthcare costs and $42 billion in untapped productivity annually in the U.S. alone, health equity is critical to the total cost of healthcare.
To combat health inequities, we need to recalibrate health equity efforts by adopting a total reinvention mindset and embedding health equity into the development of digital solutions. Accenture’s U.S. health inequity: beyond the statistics report found three key areas to building a digital core: 1) mitigating bias in data and algorithms, 2) designing inclusive products and services and 3) creating sustainable and structural change.
How might digital health help us close the gap?
Join panelists Whit Rawlinson, Oncology Digital Innovation Leader at Merck, Ken Tubman, Head of Patient Engagement at Takeda, Sans Thakur, Chief Growth Officer of Medable, Dr. Ankoor Shah, Pediatrician and Health Equity Lead at Accenture, and Alexander Condoleon, Head of Digital Healthcare at Sanofi for a discussion moderated by Laura Westercamp, Managing Director in Accenture’s Life Sciences and MedTech practice, to deep-dive into how digital health can support health equity and ways it might divide. How might digital health make more equitable healthcare a reality from recruiting diverse clinical trials to patient access support?
