Data from patients, physicians, and the plethora of phones, wearables, sensors and IoT devices are coming together with promises for a healthier (and longer) tomorrow. Today’s advances in machine learning and artificial intelligence are allowing for sophisticated analysis of the aggregated data produced by individuals for the benefit of society as a whole.
But, this transformation and evolution does not come easy. With barriers between regulatory needs, data security concerns and patient privacy, applications and technologies, using health data can potentially impede care. With so much available information, patients may also find themselves the real stewards of their own detailed health information for the first time.
But if these treacherous waters can be navigated seamlessly by healthcare providers, technology creators and health services consumers alike, they could open a whole new landscape in healthcare treatment and prevention. One where improved patient outcomes could become the norm.
So what are the challenges ahead for the world of connected health? We look forward to having you join us as experienced healthcare tech leaders discuss how they are navigating and implementing new data-driven technologies to improve patients’ medical profiles and overall well-being.
