How Technology Is Helping (and Hurting) Health Care

Listen to the full episode here: http://www.ihi.org/resources/Pages/AudioandVideo/WIHI-The-Digital-Transformation-How-Technology-is-Helping-and-Hurting-Health-Care-.aspx

Look to your left. Now look to your right. Chances are, you just saw a computer. Probably more than one.

Technology is everywhere in health care — and for many reasons, that’s a good thing. It’s fast, it’s efficient, and it can reduce errors. What’s not to love?

Well, a lot. Technology is not a cure-all. It can make people complacent, introduce new errors, and get in the way of meaningful face-to-face interactions.

Still, love it or loathe it, technology is here to stay and we need to learn how to get the most value from the digital world that health care increasingly relies upon. That will be the focus of our conversation on the June 1 WIHI, The Digital Transformation: How Technology Is Helping (and Hurting) Health Care. World-renowned patient safety experts Bob Wachter and Tejal Gandhi will share what they’re learning about technology’s impact (both positive and negative) on our industry.

The Empowered You: How Healthcare Is Evolving With Technology | Daniel Kraft | TEDxBeaconStreetSalon

Daniel Kraft has a vision of a healthcare system that trusts the patient to be involved with their own care. Through technology that can track everything from your heart rate to your blood pressure and hormonal levels, we have the power to know more about our bodies than ever before. What will it be like to have minute-by-minute information on our bodies? How would it change our habits? How will it change our healthcare system? Watch Daniel’s talk to learn about the medical care of the future!

Daniel Kraft is a Stanford & Harvard trained physician-scientist and innovator. Daniel has served as faculty chair Medicine at Singularity University since its inception, and is founder and curator of Exponential Medicine, a program exploring the impact and potential of rapidly developing technologies to reshape health and biomedicine. After undergrad at Brown, and medical school at Stanford, Daniel completed the combined Harvard Internal Medicine and Pediatrics residency training at the MGH and Boston Children’s Hospital, and fellowships in hematology/oncology and bone marrow transplantation at Stanford. His academic research focused on stem cell and regenerative medicine and branched into medical devices and digital health. Daniel is founder of RegenMed Systems (see his TED Talk on his invention the ‘MarrowMiner’) and more recently, IntelliMedicine, and advises many healthcare companies.

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.

Willem Herter studied Theoretical Physics at the University of Amsterdam. During this period, Willem has founded a company in education helping high school students. Furthermore, Willem was a member of the voluntary board of the Dutch Cancer Society and has worked as data scientist for THNK: School for Creative Leadership.

Wouter Kroese has obtained a bachelor’s degree in Medicine in Utrecht and a master’s degree in Computational Logic at the University of Amsterdam. Wouter has worked at University Medical Center Utrecht and has working experience in management consulting.

Leveraging mobile devices to improve healthcare | Mohammed Dalwai | TEDxCapeTown

This talk was given at a local TEDx event, produced independently of the TED Conferences. More people have access to mobile devices than to clean drinking water in the developing world. Mohammed asks the question: Can we leverage mobile devices to improve healthcare?

Mohammed holds an MBChB (Bachelor of Medicine and Bachelor of Surgery) from University of Stellenbosch. He is passionate about the impact of medicine within the rural context having completed his Community Service at Manguzi – a rural community – in the Maputaland region of the KwaZulu-Natal province. This led him to join MSF (Medecins Sans Frontieres – Doctors without Borders) as an ER doctor in various countries such as Pakistan, Libya and Syria. In 2012, the Mail & Guardian recognized Mohammed as one of South Africa’s Top 200 young and most interesting people specifically for his groundbreaking work around the South African triage score and its implementation across the world. He is currently pursuing a PhD in Emergency Medicine at the University of Cape Town.

In 2012 he co founded The Open Medicine Project, a non profit aimed at capacitating healthcare workers in the developing world using mobile technology. Their EM guidance app has been downloaded in over 145 countries and is being used by over 7000 health workers worldwide.
Mohammed believes in the accumulative value of individual contributions with the overall imperative of changing the world, one step at time

About TEDx, x = independently organized event In the spirit of ideas worth spreading, TEDx is a program of local, self-organized events that bring people together to share a TED-like experience. At a TEDx event, TEDTalks video and live speakers combine to spark deep discussion and connection in a small group. These local, self-organized events are branded TEDx, where x = independently organized TED event. The TED Conference provides general guidance for the TEDx program, but individual TEDx events are self-organized.* (*Subject to certain rules and regulations)
