How Connected Health Devices are Tackling the COVID Data Gap in Emergencies

The COVID-19 pandemic has indelibly changed the way healthcare providers, responders, and payers deliver care. Strained workforces, changing guidelines, and rapidly evolving facts have made it extremely difficult to provide care at the scale necessary to fight the virus, especially on a day-to-day basis.

Connected and digital health devices are helping the healthcare system rise to the challenge of handling COVID-related emergencies. Connected health devices, from panic buttons and wearable health monitors, to fitness trackers and portable AEDs, are able to share data from patients to providers and first responders in emergencies, to ensure the right patient gets the right care at the right time.

In this webinar, we sit down with Sameer Jafri, President/COO of AVIVE Solutions, to talk about how connected health devices are forming partnerships with healthcare providers and payers to address consumer demands in the post-COVID world. We’ll cover:

– How connected health devices are tackling COVID-19

– Why 95% of Americans want first responders to receive more data

– Ways for healthcare providers and payers to work with first responders
