The Woes of "Connected" in Troubled Times
Shannon Wright remotely oversaw the triage and transfer of patients to Atlanta and Florida from Hurricanes Irma and Maria. Despite every patient having electronic records, she had to resort to using a spreadsheet to manage care because of the lack of connectivity between the systems. This talk will serve as a bleak, but engaging, problem statement that will inspire us during the solution sessions later in the day.
