The COVID-19 pandemic has changed the delivery of healthcare forever. In this past year, healthcare has embraced digital solutions unlike ever before. Of course, the goal of any hospital or health systems is to ensure quality care is delivered efficiently across the entire care continuum. One gap still remains, however, at the initial contact between patient and provider. Leveraging technology, health systems can empower patients with personalized healthcare guidance before a patient walks through their doors. Using digital health to provide this guidance will not only empower patients but also optimize how health systems deliver care.
On October 29th, 2020, at 11:00 AM EST, HITLAB welcomes you to join a panel discussion on how digital health technologies can streamline patient screening. The panel will address how the COVID-19 pandemic has served as an agent of change.
HITLAB welcomes providers and digital health experts from NYU Grossman School of Medicine, Dr. Marc Triola, and Yale New Haven Health, Dr. Armand DoRosario, providing insights from their world leading healthcare systems and explaining how care is evolving at their health systems. Joining them will be Vicenc Ferrer, Managing Director NYC for Mediktor, the only clinically validated artificial intelligence (AI)-based medical assistant for triage, pre-diagnosis, and decision-making support.
Mediktor was one of two companies selected by the HITLAB Breakthrough Alliance in July 2020 out of more than 220 applicants.

It’s a meaningful recognition for Mediktor’s interest in developing clinical-grade digital solutions, and it encourages us to persist in this strategic line” added Ferrer, Mediktor’s Managing Director based out of New York City.
