New Survey and Panel Discussion on How Americans Use Technology in Health Care

Friday, October 23, 2015

Washington, D.C. – From video doctor visits to text reminders about medications, the stories about digital technology enhancing patients’ care are encouraging. But what do Americans really think of technology and how do they use it in their daily lives to improve the quality of their health care? That’s the topic of discussion on Wednesday, November 4, as the Council of Accountable Physician Practices and the Bipartisan Policy Center (BPC) release new survey results showing Americans’ interest and use of digital tools and the power that digital health care technology has on improving care delivery and the patient experience. This first-of-its-kind survey looks at whether people can access technology-enabled care with their personal doctor or medical provider for quality and continuity of care.

Following the press conference, there will be an in-depth panel discussion from 12:30 PM to 3:30 PM on the survey results and the importance of technology in coordinating patients’ health care. Videos of patient stories will be highlighted during the event, which demonstrate successful real-life experiences using technology.

The event is open to the public and press. Members of the press wishing to attend, please RSVP to Joann Donnellan at [email protected].
