Networking Rounds

Networking Discussion Questions

Feel free to use these discussion questions to help guide your conversations:

  1. What do you believe are the largest barriers to getting digital health technologies out the door and into the market at scale?
  2. It seems as though digital health technologies are becoming more embraced by healthcare service providers as a result of the current health pandemic (suddenly I can conveniently book a telehealth appointment). How do we increase the adoption of ready-to-use digital health tech without requiring a pandemic as a catalyst? What are the key barriers that exist today? Who are key stakeholders & what are the first steps to take?
