Veterans Health Summit II
September 22, 2021, 11:00 am UTC+0
We will identify issues and obstacles that veterans and other vulnerable populations face when accessing quality health care and discuss ideas and solutions to address those obstacles. This summit will build upon the summit we hosted last year, where we identified veteran health care issues that were being magnified by the pandemic and shared potential solutions built around emerging technology (e.g. blockchain, decentralized AI, confidential compute) and telehealth. Similar to last year, we will highlight the role that emerging technology can play in removing barriers to health care, not just among veterans, but all vulnerable populations, especially those from marginalized communities. This will be highlighted by a presentation of a joint project between Dixon Center and ConsenSys Health.
