How AI and Voice Technology Will Transform Healthcare | Teri Fisher | TEDxSanJuanIsland

Artificial Intelligence and voice technology (i.e. Amazon Alexa, Google Assistant, and others) are going to completely disrupt the way we experience healthcare. Voice is the most seamless form of communication because it is natural, efficient, and convenient. Infants are born using their voices to tell us when they are hungry. Human beings can speak faster than we can type or text. And, we have the ability to speak and multitask at the same time. Simply, we are entering the era of ambient computing: artificial intelligent voice-first devices in our surroundings ready to carry out our commands through the most natural interface known to us – our speech. Dr. Teri Fisher is a Sport & Exercise Physician and Clinical Assistant Professor in the Faculty of Medicine at the University of British Columbia in Vancouver, Canada. He has a particular interest in e-health innovation and the intersection of voice technology and healthcare. He is the Founder and host of “Voice First Health”, a website and podcast that highlights the rapidly expanding intersection of Healthcare and Voice-First technologies.

Dr. Fisher is also the founder of Alexa in Canada, the leading Amazon Alexa resource for Canadians; and Briefcast.FM, the premier Flash Briefing network. He is the host of the weekly “Alexa in Canada” Podcast and the daily “Voice in Canada” Flash Briefing, the #1 rated Amazon Alexa Briefing and News Skill in Canada, where he helps to facilitate voice-first technology literacy and helps others to discover how artificial intelligence and voice-first technology is revolutionizing our lives.

Dr. Fisher holds a Bachelor of Science degree from McGill University, and Bachelor of Education, Master of Science, and Medical Doctor degrees from UBC. When he’s not conversing with his AI smart speakers, he can be found trying to keep up with his active wife and coaching his two children on the ice rink or baseball diamond.

Artificial Intelligence in Healthcare – The Need for Ethics | Varoon Mathur | TEDxUBC

The advent of artificial intelligence (AI) promises to revolutionize the way we think about medicine and healthcare, but whom do we hold accountable when diagnoses fail or when automated procedures go awry? Drawing on experiences in global health and machine learning can help highlight the need for a sound ethical framework to be put in place to deal with emerging challenges and threats posed by AI, so that we can learn to build technology that puts patients and their health first. Varoon is a senior Computer Science student and a global health activist. Focused intently on the lack of affordable medicines for the most vulnerable and marginalized, Varoon serves on the national leadership team of the student-led NGO Universities Allied for Essential Medicines (UAEM). He has led delegations as part of the World Health Organization and led the publication of the first Global Health report card for U15 Canadian Universities to evaluate their impact on global equity in biomedical research.

The New “Disrupters” in Healthcare – Patients and Pharmacists | Rajiv Shah | TEDxFargo

Dr. Shah is the CEO of MyMeds (www.my-meds.com), a digital health company whose medication adherence platform engages patients, physicians and pharmacists to work together.
Technology is disrupting consumer industries across the globe. In healthcare, technology is being used to improve systems, but the new disruption will be driven by people – patients and pharmacists. Like never before, patients are demanding consumer technologies to help them become more engaged on their changing health care team. The new team brings pharmacists off the bench and puts them in a starring role to help solve one of healthcare’s biggest issues – the $300 billion problem of medication non-adherence (not taking medicines properly).

Dr. Shah is the CEO of MyMeds and a Board-certified nephrologist who practices in Minneapolis. Combining his front-line experience of understanding the multiple roles (patient, provider, entrepreneur) in a rapidly-changing health environment, and his dedication to implementing digital health IT to improve health outcomes, Dr. Shah provides a unique perspective on innovation in healthcare today. He received his M.D. from the University of Minnesota Medical School, and attended Boston University, from where he graduated with a B.A. in Cognitive Psychology with a focus on memory creation. This provided the foundation on which the MyMeds adherence platform was created to improve medication-taking behaviors. He has been recognized for his work in business, medicine and philanthropy with the Virginia McKnight Binger Award in Human Service, 40 Under 40, Ten Outstanding Young Minnesotans, and Real Power.

How To Understand U.S. Healthcare? Follow The Money | Dr. Jonathan Burroughs | TEDxWolfeboro

For those seeking to better understand the US healthcare system, national healthcare consultant Dr. Jonathan Burroughs suggests playing a game of “follow the money.” He asserts that whenever healthcare appears illogical, following the money will make it all rational and clear. The U.S. spends 2x as much money as the rest of the industrialized world, yet its citizens do not live as long as they do in 36 other nations. Dr. Burroughs gives an overview on how to fix the system. Dr. Burroughs has worked with over 1,100 hospitals across the country to help healthcare leaders navigate the 21st century. He is a popular national speaker, who speaks to the impact of healthcare reform on hospitals, physicians and patients. Jonathan is a healthcare legal expert, who has participated in over 65 cases across the country. He is the winner of the James A Hamilton Award in 2016 awarded by the American College of Healthcare Executives titled “Redesign the Medical Staff Model”. This talk was given at a TEDx event using the TED conference format but independently organized by a local community. Learn more at https://www.ted.com/tedx

Designing the healthcare provider of the future: Chad Priest at TEDxIndianapolis

Chad Priest talks about his perspective as a healthcare provider in multiple professions: as a military nurse, a healthcare lawyer, university faculty member and most recently as the CEO of a non-profit crisis management organization. Through these experiences, he has come to believe that in order to create health you have to mix it up. Mix up the professions and the interactions. Priest is a dad, a husband, a nurse, an attorney, an Air Force veteran and the CEO of the MESH Coalition, an emergency management organization. But if you ask him, he’ll just tell you he’s a healthcare provider on a mission to change the way we think about healthcare and who provides it. To create health, we must mix it up: crossing professions and cross-pollinating solutions that lead to breakthrough thinking.
