Improving Patient Care through Health Care Connectivity

Darrell M. West, Niam Yaraghi, Simeon Schwartz, Kelly Cronin, and Tara Koslov

Rapid improvements in technology have provided health benefits for patients and doctors alike, from tracking medications accurately to enhancing patient-provider communication to health monitoring through real time data. Despite these innovations, health care is not one connected, efficient system. How can the medical community continue to modernize health care through technology to enhance quality, access and outcomes? How are new technologies working to decrease the cost of health care?

On October 9, Governance Studies at Brookings hosted an event to discuss the opportunities and obstacles regarding health care connectivity. A panel of experts discussed how key stakeholders—policymakers, health plans, providers, employers, and consumers—can use technology to improve health care quality and performance.
