Healthcare Analytics Summit 2018 - How Automating and Virtualizing the Hell Out of Healthcare Is the Only Way to Save It
Thursday, Sept. 13: 11:20 am – 12:15 pm MDT 

Problems with primary care access for patients is regularly blamed on a severe shortage of primary care physicians (PCPs). However, we don’t really have a PCP shortage—just a shortage of efficiently using them. Saving our primary care system requires the “double whammy” of automation and virtualization. Together, automation and virtualization will allow one doctor to take care of twice as many patients in a significantly higher-quality manner. Join Dr. Lyle Berkowitz, a PCP, digital healthcare innovator and health tech entrepreneur in this lively discussion to learn about the automated and virtual future of primary care delivery.
