The COVID-19 pandemic – and the policy changes that accompanied it – have rapidly expanded the use of digital tools in health care, driving greater access to care, particularly for underserved populations.
During a recent panel discussion, Kristi Henderson, MedExpress CEO and senior vice president of Optum’s Center for Digital Health & Innovation, and fellow panelists from the Black Women’s Health Imperative and South Atlanta Pediatrics spoke about the growing adoption of digital tools during the pandemic and ongoing opportunities to advance health equity with innovative technology.
The panel was part of the Digital Health Equity Virtual Convening hosted by the United Health Foundation and the Morehouse School of Medicine’s National Center for Primary Care, which highlighted the results of the National Center for Primary Care Digital Health Tools Study supported by the United Health Foundation’s three-year, $1.1 million grant to Morehouse School of Medicine.
