(14:00) SMART talks: how technology is empowering the healthcare industry in sustainable ways
Matthieu Bristiel, Akila Care’s Lead Innovation Officer, led a discussion covering tech and sustainability in the healthcare industry. Key areas of focus were the large amounts of waste generated by hospital construction and the environmental stress caused by heavy utility requirements once hospitals are in operation. Another unique challenge facing medical facilities is the amount of time and resources wasted due to a lack of patient data.
Technology can address all of these challenges by creating a single-source-of-truth data platform, which allows for fewer wasted resources during construction, smarter utilities use during operation and a unified patient data network that improves diagnosis, analysis, and treatment
