Kajeet’s chief technology officer, Greg Jones, will host a session on digital inequities in healthcare and participate in a social determinants of health panel discussion at the annual conference
The COVID-19 pandemic and overburdened healthcare industry have rendered digital healthcare connectivity a necessity – and yet, 19 million Americans remain without reliable internet access in their homes. There is a crucial need to address digital inequity for patients unable to visit traditional healthcare settings – including the most vulnerable, elderly and disadvantaged populations – and deliver secure, cost-effective connectivity solutions while improving medical outcomes.
At the 2022 HIMSS Global Health Conference & Exhibition, Kajeet chief technology officer, Greg Jones, will present a 20-minute session titled “Delivering Equitable Digital Healthcare Solutions.” In this session, he will discuss the importance of equitable digital healthcare solutions, how the COVID-19 pandemic has shone a spotlight on the problems burdening our healthcare system and a path to solving these issues.
Additionally, Kajeet is participating in the Social Determinants of Health (SDOH) “Sip & Learn” Advancing Equitable Interoperability event. Curated by the HIMSS SDOH Task Force, a panel of experts will discuss equitable interoperability concerning sensitive data sharing, health equity and accessibility.
