NYP OnDemand is the system-wide telemedicine platform of NY Presbyterian Hospital, Columbia Doctors and Weill Cornell Medicine. It includes virtual visits, digital second opinions, remote access to urgent care (for non life-threatening issues), and the ability for doctors to collaborate on patient cases.
Faster care and less crowded hospitals can of course improve the quality of life for New Yorkers. But in rural America and the developing world, similar systems could dramatically increase access to physicians.
Health technology as an equalizer in care, irrespective of wealth and location, will be a focus of the Wearable Tech + Digital Health + NeuroTech Silicon Valley conference at Stanford University this February.
