Roundtable Discussions at Top of Mind Summit: Digital Health


Download a white paper summarizing four roundtable discussions from the Top of Mind Summit: Digital Health

The Top of Mind Summit: Digital Health brought together more than 70 leaders and innovators from health systems, technology companies, and other health care organizations in April 2024 for a mix of structured panel discussions and small-group roundtable sessions.

The roundtable discussions provided participants with an opportunity to engage on cutting-edge topics with relevant peers. These discussions, facilitated by leaders in each topic, created space for open dialogue, proactive deliberation, and meaningful engagement.

The Center for Connected Medicine at UPMC produced a white paper summarizing four roundtable sessions on telemedicine, digital tools and behavior change, pharmacy innovation, and workforce issues.

The white paper, which includes key takeaways, a summary, and list of participants from each roundtable, is available for download from the link above.

Below are short descriptions and page numbers for each of the roundtables included in the white paper.
