The Connected Highway of Healthcare Delivery

February 1, 2022

At this year’s Consumer Electronics Show (CES 2022), the digital health sector was abuzz with new virtual care solutions, translated through the vantage point of a healthcare industry that has spent almost two years grappling with a global pandemic.

And so perhaps ironically, we recorded this episode from a series of remote locations, due to COVID precautions. This podcast is also unusual in that we were able to include three guests from the healthcare vertical at AT&T: Joe Drygas, Clara Hustad and Clint Cetti.

Together we discussed how the future of healthcare delivery will need to leverage the benefits of new information highways.
