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.

Why we can’t fix our healthcare system | Ayesha Khalid | TEDxBeaconStreet

This talk was given at a local TEDx event, produced independently of the TED Conferences. Ayesha Khalid, surgeon at Harvard Medical School and recent MBA from the MIT Sloan Fellows Program, is at the intersection of disruptive innovation in healthcare and the digital health experience. Ayesha previously pioneered groundbreaking research in sinus disease including muco-ciliary clearance and outcomes following surgery. She is now a passionate believer that disruptive innovation in healthcare requires collaboration, not competition. Using a systems thinking approach, Ayesha wants us to suspend our belief that adding more process to our healthcare system will add back “health” and “care” to a broken system. Instead, this compelling talk provides an imaginative way to approach the redesign of our health care system to one that promotes “health” and works “systematically” for the patient.

A sinus surgeon at Harvard Medical School and recent MBA graduate from MIT, Ayesha Khalid is a healthcare innovation enthusiast involved with entrepreneurial ventures at the intersection of healthcare innovation and digital technologies. She has pioneered groundbreaking research techniques in inflammation and sinus disease and is working to create different funding paradigms to accelerate clinical research.

Nurse Innovation: Saving the Future of Healthcare | Rebecca Love | TEDxBeaconStreet

It was the innovation of nursing that lifted medicine out of the dark ages of practice. Today, Nurses represent nearly half of the healthcare workforce and are the end user of nearly every medical product on the market.

But Nurses are rarely if ever engaged in the decision-making process by which new health care products are designed, constructed and brought to market. This is a huge missed opportunity that is resulting in costly inefficiencies and leading to the highest levels of nurse burnout ever recorded.

Rebecca describes the cultural and behavioral shifts that must take place in healthcare in order to empower Nurses and to drive impactful innovation forward.
Rebecca Love, RN, MSN, ANP is the Global Community Officer for Ryalto International and was the first Director of Nurse Innovation & Entrepreneurship in the United States at Northeastern School of Nursing – the first initiative in the Country designed to empower nurses as innovators and entrepreneurs, which has led to transformational change in the Nursing Profession. Rebecca is an experienced Nurse Entrepreneur, founding HireNurses.com in 2013 which was acquired in 2018. Rebecca is passionate about empowering nurses and creating communities to help nurses innovate, create and collaborate to start businesses to transform healthcare.

Rebecca holds a M.S. in Nursing from Northeastern University, B.A. in International Relations/Spanish from Boston University, and is currently Faculty at Norwich University, sits on the board of NextGen Ventures & the Host Committee for the Massachusetts ACLU. She currently lives in Marblehead Massachusetts with her husband and 3 children. This talk was given at a TEDx event using the TED conference format but independently organized by a local community.
