The Patient and The Practitioner in the Age of Technology: Promoting Healing Relationships

A Virtual Conference Series

Research, Innovative Projects, and Practical Solutions from the United States and Around the World

The electronic health record (EHR) and other health information technologies (HIT) have profoundly affected the relationship between patients & their practitioners and between practitioners and their work. This second international symposium will bring together diverse patients, professionals, and researchers to examine what science and front line practice have taught us about the impact of the EHR and other HIT on the patient-practitioner relationship, how human relationships figure in software and device design and implementation, ethical stewardship of shared data, and current best practices for successfully integrating HIT into clinical practice, while keeping the patient at the center of care. We shall consider the impact of the COVID-19 pandemic on these issues.

Conference Goals

  1. Bring together patients, practitioners, educators, technology designers, institutional and government leaders, and stakeholders from the United States and around the world to explore protecting healing relationships in the age of technology
  2. Present current research, best practices, and innovations 
    • Relationships Matter More Than Ever, And They Are Changing
    • Addressing Disparities
    • Designing Human-Centered Health Information Technology
    • Advancing the Empowerment of Patients to Use Health Information Technology
    • Teaching Health Information Technology in Support of Relationship-Centered Care
    • Keeping Practitioners Well And Resilient
    • Working with Government, Institutions, and Stakeholders to Support Healing Relationships and Human Capital
