20 years ago TiVo turned the television industry on its head. Appointment TV was shaken to the core when we were empowered to time-shift our favorite shows. Rather than rushing to see our primetime favorite and sitting rooted for an hour or more, we could watch at our own time, blithely forwarding through the advertiser’s hustle.
Our communication methods alternate between synchronous – live chat (video or otherwise) – to asynchronous (mail, videos, social media) means. Similarly, our consumption of content and services too alternate – as from live broadcasts to streaming on-demand.
Our CPO writes “I had wondered when health services will see a similar time-shifting that TiVo did for TV. I am not wondering anymore! No, not just because of Covid-19 even though Covid will accelerate this trend towards asynchronous care, leveraging many TELEMEDICINE POLICY CHANGES and practical realities of care delivery during this crisis.”
