Re-Think Health Podcast Series

Understanding New Tools and Approaches for Better Health Outcomes

The IEEE SA Voice Re-Think Health Podcast is an interview-style podcast where global healthcare stakeholders– technologists, researchers, clinicians, patient advocates, regulators, and more– re-think the approach to healthcare, from therapeutic discovery through bedside practice, utilizing new technologies and applications. The new frontiers of health tech have to be pragmatic, responsible and trusted to deliver optimal patient outcomes with security, privacy, and sustainable equitable access to quality care for all individuals. Welcome to the conversation!

Telehealth's Quantum Leap into Patient-Centered Care

As a result of the global pandemic, telehealth has become a more comfortable tool for healthcare delivery. The reality is that the way we see telehealth today will look very different tomorrow with more technological innovations and new approaches to administering health beyond the hospital walls. Still, more importantly, it will need to be patient-centered.

Season 4 features conversations with the rising innovators, researchers, policy stewards, clinicians, and industry leaders discussing solutions on accessibility, integration, security, inclusivity, and the other necessary ingredients to migrate the future of healthcare to a patient-centered continuum of care.
