Ending Health Care Discrimination

Baltimore City Health Commissioner, Dr. Leana Wen, is changing the way we view health care. 80% of what determines if a person lives, is not the care they get in a hospital but all of the other factors in their life. Health is about poverty, race, housing, and the environments we live in. We cannot address health without first addressing the disparities in our health care system.

What the US health care system assumes about you

The difficulties low-income patients have when trying to receive healthcare can be easily overlooked. Katz points out the many assumptions healthcare in the United States makes­—that patients can take off of work in the middle of the day to get care, can speak English, are literate, have enough food, have a home with a refrigerator, a bathroom, and a bed where they can sleep without worrying about violence while they are resting. As he says, “Healthcare is built on a middle-class model that often doesn’t meet the needs of low-income patients. That’s one of the reasons why it has been so difficult for us to close the disparity in healthcare that exists along economic lines despite the expansion of health insurance under the ACA.”
 
Having run the safety net programs in many of the country’s largest cities, Mitchell Katz has dedicated his career working to improve health outcomes for some of the most vulnerable patients in urban settings. Watch Mitch’s TEDMED 2018 talk, “What the US health care system assumes about you” to learn more about his work to eliminate the effects of economic disparities in healthcare and find ways to meet all patients on their own terms.

Embracing big data for the future of healthcare, a radical transformation in the way patients receive treatment.
When you, as a patient, sit in front of a doctor, the doctor does not have access to the right information what treatment works for you. Digitization of the world gives us the opportunity to make health care smarter and much much better. With the use of big data Wouter and Willem support docters in choosing the right medicine for the right person. They radically transformed the way we learn what treatment will help you when you get sick.

Bridging the rural healthcare gap | Rubayat Khan | TEDxDhaka

Rubayat Khan, a Bangladeshi entrepreneur considers how technology and market mechanisms can help bridge these health care gaps tapping into unique alternatives.

Artificial Intelligence in Healthcare – It’s about Time | Casey Bennett | TEDxNashville

We need tools that can help us – both clinicians and patients – make better healthcare decisions. Yet in order to do so, those tools need to “think like we do” … and the key to natural intelligence is not simply X better than Y, but rather sequences of decisions over time. To best assist us, our clinical computing tools should approximate the same process. Such an approach ties to future developments across the broader healthcare space: cognitive computing, smart homes, cyborg clinicians, and robotics.

Casey Bennett is the Chief Scientific Officer for Faros Healthcare. He received his PhD from the School of Informatics and Computing at Indiana University. His work focuses on artificial intelligence in healthcare, including the areas of robotics, machine learning, clinical decision support, and personalized medicine. He was the lead designer for Centerstone’s award-winning organization-wide analytics platform (2010 TDWI Best Practices Award) and the national Knowledge Network Data Warehouse, the largest ongoing clinical mental health data repository in the country. His work has also been featured as part of IBM’s “Smarter Planet” campaign. He is currently working on projects using artificial intelligence to augment clinical decision-making in chronic illness, as well as utilizing in-home robots for therapeutic purposes with elderly patients.
