About the Event

As advancements emerge in health technology, at-home care and diagnostics, and preventative testing, it’s critical that digital health companies consider how to ensure equity in their delivery. Improving access, empowering clinicians, and lowering transaction costs are just a few ways new technologies can address systemic inequities, but there is another side of the coin. If not implemented intentionally and inclusively, technology has the power to inhibit advancements. In other words, with great power comes great responsibility.

How then do experts ensure their work is bridging gaps in health disparities and not exacerbating them? Join Healthcare Brew as we sit down with Bret Anderson, Partner in Digital Technology and Transformation at Chartis, to understand how the industry is capitalizing on exciting advancements in digital health, director-to-consumer testing, and more, all while keeping equity in mind. Following this segment, Kate Karfilis, Director of Product, Genomics, at LetsGetChecked will join us to discuss the specific role genetic testing can play in health equity, and how to ensure equity’s presence in the delivery of this service.
