How can technology bridge the gap between communities and businesses during times of public health emergencies where social distancing seems vital to protect public health?

Laso Health makes healthcare more transparent and affordable for all of us by enabling everyone to request direct pay and bundled prices for medical procedures. No more surprise bills in healthcare! Think of Laso as a virtual marketplace that enables everyone to find the right provider that meets their budget from the comfort of their home.

By looking at the local company Laso Health, we’ll try to get a better understanding of what it means to develop and deploy your own smartphone app.

Shurmed/ArcLight Medical uses technology to provide community-based patient care and monitoring, providing safer, better service for patients and maximizing income for the providers.

The Honorable Bexar County Clerk Lucy Adame-Clark is back by popular demand and will share with us how she has leveraged technology to make her office more accessible to our community.

Lucy Adame-Clark has gone out of her way to make it as easy as possible for the public to get in touch with the Clerk's office. One way she has attempted this is by creating "Records on the Run", a mobile command unit. The truck is full of technology, and its purpose is to take her office to where the people needs her most.
