Out in Tech New York | The Dr Will Txt U Now

April 27, 2017 6:30 pm - 9:00 pm

Nobody knew health care could be so complicated! Well, we did.

The digital health boom is radically changing how patients interact with their providers. Feel sick? Video chat your doctor from your couch. Medication up for refill? Your pharmacy will preemptively text you to remind you. Gone are the days of handwritten (read: illegible) charts and calling previous doctors to see if your vaccinations are current. Now you, the patient, are in control of, as well as responsible for, your health.

Join us on April 27th for a panel discussion featuring those who are using data and technology to transform modern healthcare. What’s on the horizon to empower users and enable access to health services? How will new government policies affect these budding health startups? And how can they better adapt to meet the needs of their LGBTQ+ members?

The panel will be moderated by Aran Maree, MD, Chief Medical Officer for Johnson & Johnson. Panelists will include:

Deborah S. Levine MSW, MAT, Director of Online Health Education at Planned Parenthood
Anna Elwood, VP Client Operations at Zocdoc
Audrey Pellicano M.S., RN-BC, CHES, Nurse Administrator at Oscar
