From health professionals and protective equipment to tests and ventilators, the COVID-19 pandemic is stretching our finite healthcare resources dangerously thin. As a result, this unprecedented test of our healthcare system is forcing us to be agile and adaptable. One of the weapons we have in our arsenal is technology. This session will highlight two major areas, out of many fronts, which are being used to help fight the virus:

  • Low cost ventilators
  • Use of AI to figure out, track and learn about this new virus

Other growing areas of technology will also be briefly discussed.
