FORT WAYNE, Ind. (WFFT) -- Parkview Health hosted a digital health summit Thursday night to learn new ways to better take care of patients.
The 16th annual research symposium is an educational program to give attendees the latest technology, research, and virtual health information from across the country.
"We have a very robust digital health conference, and many of the people that are attending are health care providers, how this is impacting nursing care at the bedside to make decisions on patient care is critical. We hope to inspire people to understand some of the challenges we still face with data in flow and data information and how to best take care of our patients," Dr. Michael J. Mirro said.
Some of the key things discussed were the role of patient required data in care management as well as the role of telecommunications technology.
"If the devices aren't accurate, we're not giving the best possible care, so further enabling devices and better communication between them and each of the facilities, is going to enable us to give better care," University of Saint Francis student Josey Grogg said.
Dr. Mirro said events like these help medical care professionals better address the needs of the community.
