Background

The GNHIC joined forces with the Innovation Learning Network (ILN) to extend their Virtual TechTuesdays series by adding an “exponential tech Tuesdays” arm. The monthly series will focus exclusively on demystifying key exponentials, and providing training for health systems on how to unleash the potential to impact patients. Each exponential will be examined via a powerful one hour webinar with experts and experienced practitioners from within and outside the GNHIC and ILN networks. Apart from explaining the technology these webinars will  explain why patients and health system players should care, describe relevant use cases and showcase emerging innovators in the field.
