We’re excited to share the topic and questions for this week’s #HITsm chat happening Friday, 1/19 at Noon ET (9 AM PT). This week’s chat will be hosted by Darin Vander Well (@DarinVanderWell) from @docutap on the topic of “How is Society’s Drive for Everything “On Demand” Changing Healthcare?

Netflix, Amazon, Uber, DVR, smart watches, smart homes – Today’s devices, apps, and technologies are making nearly every facet of our lives available in an instant. One industry that has resisted full-scale turnover into an on-demand delivery model has been healthcare.

Whether unwilling or unable, there are many pieces of the healthcare ecosystem that – albeit, with technology – are delivered on the same timelines that have always been used.

However, we are beginning to see some change. Urgent care and retail clinics, telemedicine, and even a return to house calls are helping to usher in the move, but who’s next in healthcare’s push towards on demand? And who should push back?

Join the conversation during this week’s #HITsm chat.
