“We need to make patients the center of care, strengthen the doctor-patient or nurse-patient relationships, and empower patients with data, insights, advice, guidance and education.”
“We’re generating all of this data around ourselves from wearables to virtual care to remote patient monitoring. And getting all that data into systems in a clean way that doctors and researchers can use to gather insights is so important.”
“Over the pandemic, we’ve seen virtual care and telehealth go from like 1% utilization to like 35, 40%. So if there’s a light at the end of the tunnel, maybe it’s been some of the adoption of these new technologies.”
