Question special

In the last discussion on healthcare wearables, the idea that these technologies might exacerbate pre-existing inequities in healthcare delivery was touched upon. This is a common thread in healthcare IT as insurance and regulatory bodies are typically not early adopters and less willing to reimburse for often-expensive cutting edge tech.

What are your thoughts on the best approach to mitigate the inequities that exist due to technological advancements in healthcare?
Are there examples of digital technologies that do a better job of addressing these inequities than others?
