Health care connectivity can decrease medical costs and increase efficiency, allowing for better patient care and health services in one interconnected system. But data sharing is just the first milestone on a path toward creating a connected environment where patients and providers readily leverage technology tools and information. What does the future of health care connectivity and technology hold?

On January 27, Governance Studies at Brookings hosted an event to discuss the benefits and difficulties of improving health care connectivity, and how those lessons can prepare the industry for future innovation. A panel of experts discussed how technology can improve access to medical information and facilitate informational exchanges that are vital to quality assurance.
