Healthcare organizations are becoming increasingly focused on innovative technology solutions like telehealth, enhanced electronic health records, and partnerships with technology companies.

With this focus has come changes to the C-suite — there was an approximate 40% increase in the number of telehealth leadership roles in the healthcare system between early 2019 and early 2020. The innovations in technology have flourished during the COVID-19 pandemic. As the new vaccines roll out and society moves toward a return to normalcy, we expect that many of these innovations are here to stay.

But as aspiring healthcare leaders rise through the ranks over the next 4 years, some questions are coming up: what should they be expecting in regard to technology? How should hospitals be approaching the use of innovative technology now and in the future, and what do they need to anticipate as we head into a new Biden/Harris administration?

In this podcast episode, Dr. Karen DeSalvo. Dr. DeSalvo who served in HHS under the Obama administration speaks on these issues. She led the Office of the National Coordinator for Health Information Technology between 2014 and 2016. Just this last year, she joined Google as its first chief health officer.
