Mature tech solutions in the COVID-19 response: Leveraging what already works to improve health outcomes

Tuesday, June 06 2020 @ 9:00 am - 10:00 am

The COVID-19 pandemic has catalyzed rapid innovation globally. Yet as novel digital solutions emerge, so has awareness of the breadth of tech-driven tools that already exist. In many low resource settings, these tools, such as SMS and telemedicine, already play a critical role in healthcare delivery, and have proven to be essential assets in the COVID-19 response.

In this webinar, we will bring together experts across sectors who are repurposing or expanding existing digital solutions as part of the COVID-19 response. Panelists will discuss the value of leveraging mature technologies in the fight against COVID-19; explore how these existing tools can complement new ones; and share relevant lessons learned.
