Past EventSPOTLIGHT ON PRESBYTERIAN HEALTH CARE SERVICES – CREATING PATIENT VALUE THROUGH INNOVATION
Digital health promises to change the face of healthcare. Much of digital health is made up of technologies and services that enable healthcare outside of traditional clinical settings. It follows a global trend in the healthcare industry of decentralization to alleviate overburdened hospitals and clinics. Coupled with escalating healthcare costs, shrinking profit margins and ageing populations suffering with chronic conditions, digital health and other health care innovations offer a solution to these problems for all players in the space including patients, providers and payers.
Dr. Ries Robinson is the Chief Innovation Officer at Presbyterian Healthcare Services. His current focus is helping Presbyterian identify, pilot, adopt and scale innovation for the benefit of patients and members. Dr. Robinson has spearheaded patient access issues with the goal of reducing the burden on providers and empowering patients to better manage their health conditions.
