One area where digital health has an opportunity to make a dramatic impact is in response to public health emergencies. Building resilient health IT systems and workflows can mean the difference between being able to hit the ground running when a disaster hits or not knowing what to do. We lived through this in early 2020 as the public health emergency COVID-19 began and in-person medical visits stopped. Providers were left scrambling to stay connected to their patients and save their practices. Investing in improvements to healthcare transformation services, FHIR-enabled care coordination, telehealth and remote patient monitoring platforms enable healthcare organizations to remain resilient in the face of adverse events.
