Medical technology and the sacred encounter

  • Season: Season 2
  • Posted On:
  • Featuring: Sean Collins & Aaron Martin

Data, data everywhere, nor any drop to humanity. With apologies to Samuel Taylor Coleridge, it sometimes feels patients are surrounded by a sea of data and technology, but little in the way of TLC. Even as healthcare rolls out new life-prolonging devices and collects and analyzes more information on us, how do we keep medicine human and humane? Aaron Martin, chief digital and innovation officer at Providence, talks about technology’s role in healthcare and how it should remove friction in the sacred encounter between patient and provider.
