In the 21st century, digital disruption is happening in every sector. Direct-to-consumer technology solutions are cutting out the middleman and driving increased convenience and lower costs.
COVID-19 has catalyzed a watershed moment for digital adoption in healthcare. Direct-to-consumer digital technologies can empower individuals to play a greater role in maintaining their own health and serve as a “digital front door” to healthcare. Examples of these technologies include chatbots that can answer clients’ questions about their health, telehealth platforms that connect clients to health workers regardless of geographical location, and remote monitoring systems that help individuals manage chronic conditions.
These solutions have the potential to support an overburdened frontline workforce, strengthening the connection between clients and health workers; however, too often health workers’ perspectives and first-hand experiences are excluded from the development of these technologies and, as a result, they fail to consider the potential impact on health workers or the importance of strong linkages to frontline care.
In this Front Line in Focus event, the Johnson & Johnson Center for Health Worker Innovation will explore why health workers must be involved in the design and development of digital self-care and remote care management technologies from the very beginning and how they can integrate with and enhance traditional in-person care. The event will bring together frontline health workers, researchers, technology developers and program implementers in conversation about the urgent need for health systems to adopt digital technologies that extend—rather than replace or undermine—the health workforce and enable clients to be active participants in their own health.
