Nicole will discuss leveraging hospital-based digital health technologies to drive biopsychosocial and developmentally targeted care and highlight pain as a priority. The expert panelists will share their visions for interoperable systems that integrate hospital and virtual care solutions for pediatric pain to promote the wide adoption of digital health solutions, support individualized care, and improve outcomes for children and families.
