Technology is pervasive in all parts of society, both personal and professional. The adoption of technology by healthcare systems, however, may be slower than in other sectors. Although there may be pitfalls to negotiate while implementing healthcare technologies (regulations, attitudes and perceptions around new technology, etc.), off-the-shelf technology implementations in select instances can result in huge dividends for a healthcare system. This two-day course is designed to address the risks that emerging technologies pose and how to take advantage of the opportunities they present. The course will consider approaches to maximize the promise that emerging technologies offer to healthcare systems while minimizing the perils that new technologies and resulting processes may pose.
