Rebuilding Hospitality through Technology and Innovation

Thursday, May 14,2020 at 1PM ET

The recent health crisis has resulted in changes to the hospitality business that have operators looking at new and innovative ways to leverage technology to not only protect guests and staff, but to continue to improve the guest experience. New technologies will focus on and encompass the need for enhanced cleaning protocols; shifts in lobby densities; distancing sensors; touchless/contactless check-in and other functions; the potential presence of on-property medical staff and their associated equipment; and more.

Join us on May 14 at 1 p.m. ET for “Rebuilding Hospitality through Technology and Innovation,” a webinar from Comcast Business and Hospitality Technology Next Generation (HTNG). Our panelists will explore the existing and anticipated protocols being driven by the “new normal” in hospitality; the wide range of related technologies that are already, or will soon be, put into play; the infrastructure and network needs that support them; and more.

Covid-19 has had a range of impacts on the supply chain, including on logistics, inventory, technology infrastructure, and other operational aspects.

Strengthening Your Telehealth Program to Respond to COVID-19 Demand

Thursday, May 28, 2020 12PM ET

COVID-19 has transformed telehealth from a point of convenience to a tool of necessity. Healthcare organizations have been forced to rapidly scale up virtual visits, remote patient monitoring and other telehealth services as patients are unable or unwilling to visit brick-and-mortar locations. This has put unprecedented stress on healthcare networks, stretching their capacity like never before, and it is likely the new normal. During this webinar, industry experts will discuss how hospital technology networks are coping and their predictions for the future, including insights from NewYork Presbyterian and its NYP OnDemand digital health program.

Join this webinar to:

  • Hear how NewYork Presbyterian is using telehealth responding to the coronavirus crisis
  • Gain best practices for strengthening your telehealth program
  • Learn how to overcome challenges related to the surge in demand for telehealth services
