description

Program Overview:
In less than a generation, digital technology has gone from rare to ubiquitous, with a majority of Americans now walking around with more computing power in the palm of their hand than was needed to power the early NASA missions to the moon. The advancement of digital technologies has enabled the creation of devices that can monitor and analyze your body's vital functions, a huge improvement over early health monitoring devices, like the traditional home scale. How can we harness this technology to improve our personal health? And where are these technologies heading in the future?

A panel of experts will discuss current digital health tools and their benefits as well as the promise for the next generation of digital products in improving health outcomes and empowering consumers. See live demonstrations from companies developing new health monitoring technologies.

Our panel discussions are candid, interactive and informal. We hope you walk away with insights and knowledge that can help advance your work or overcome roadblocks. The panel will be followed by a networking reception.


Topics:

  • What are we measuring today? What improvements in health have today's devices made?
  • What information is getting to our doctors?
  • What else should we be measuring? What technology is needed/on the horizon? How will that help?
  • What are the shortfalls to improving outcomes?
