HIMSSCast: Toward a More Human-Centered Approach to Hospital Stays

Healthcare IT News – by Mike Miliard

From wearables to new machine learning applications, advanced technologies can help improve the inpatient experience, says Rebecca Pinn of EPAM Continuum.

Rebecca Pinn, Director of Innovation Strategy at EPAM Continuum, specializes in creative thinking about experience design. She also recently had an extended hospital stay that gave her time to do some thinking about some ways patient-facing technologies could be tailored to enable a much more humane and comfortable experience for inpatients and the clinicians who care for them.

Pinn joined Healthcare IT News Executive Editor Mike Miliard to talk about how hospitals could do better using wearable devices and sensors, TV monitors, machine learning for clinical notes and more.
