Health Technology Forum

Dallas/Fort Worth Meetup

The monthly events are hosted by IBM at their Innovation Center in Dallas near LBJ and 121.  Food and refreshments are provided.   Suggestions for speakers are always welcome for future events!  These events are always an hour or two of great networking, learning and discovery.

At these completely FREE monthly meetups, we discuss real-life technology use-cases from hospitals, doctor offices, medical billing, insurance, remote monitoring, health and wellness, and various patient-care services.   Subject matter experts, users, entrepreneurs, regulators, and providers address each other’s needs and solutions.  The objective is to connect entrepreneurs with professionals who are addressing these real-life problems that exist today in the healthcare ecosystem.  We also review how low-cost, scalable, deployable systems can meet or exceed the needs of 21st century care-giving.

Care teams provide the non-visit, continuous care that is essential to population health management. They are also responsible for promoting patient engagement between visits. But, care managers who use manual processes cannot intervene with every patient. That effort requires the use of health information and communication tools that automate the process so that care managers can devote themselves to the patients who need the most attention.

Besides automating care management, the latest technologies enable organizations to analyze population data and stratify patients by risk. Based on that information, they can design engagement strategies tailored to particular subgroups of patients.
