COVID-19 Pandemic Recovery and the amazing future of your health care

COVID-19 recovery means different things to different leaders. In our book, it means we work to ensure that everyone has access to the healthcare they need. It also means we use technology, including artificial intelligence, to make all forms of health care as user-friendly, cost-effective and efficient as possible.

Screening Mr. Joe’s (constant) requests for care

Folks like Mr. Joe call into the clinic quite a bit. We can screen those calls and address many of his concerns without him coming into the clinic.

Technology knows where Juan is, how he is, what he needs and where the closest help is.

Getting to Juan’s emergency fast

When it’s urgent, we can screen medical problems within seconds and get emergency services to folks like Juan in minutes.

Technology provides a way for Eddy (and his mom) to identify and access care and support.

Bringing counseling to teen Eddy wherever he is.

Counselor Albert (who works from home) can talk with Eddy in the environments the teen likes, from his room or the skateboard park. Eddy’s mom can also join in when appropriate.

Technology provides to Teresa the type of counselor she needs based on expertise, not location.

Providing Teresa with the support she needs

Counselor Dr. Mary lives in another part of the state, but knows Teresa’s local resources thanks to a state-of-the-art directory. Counselor and client have a productive partnership that helps Teresa navigate a chaotic post-pandemic world to achieve her goals.

The future will be what we make it. Join the evolution.

Please excuse any typos as I construct an article at 3am on only one cup of Joe. These stories are mine and mine alone. I do not represent any organization here.
