In the second Summit keynote, Dr. Shannon emphasized the importance of process improvement in advancing health outcomes and shifting emphasis in healthcare from treatment to wellness and prevention. Dr. Shannon described how technology will be transformative in this process and shared examples of how UVA is implementing new technologies like remote patient monitoring to improve infrastructure burdens and embedded IoT technologies in ambulances to accelerate treatment time.
Dr. Shannon closed his keynote stressing the significance of cross-collaboration among health systems, universities and the private sector to fuel health innovation and improve health outcomes.
