This must-watch video is not only fascinating, (where you see firsthand amazing technologies will soon radically change healthcare), it also gives you hundreds of phrases and terms that are still free to register for that 99 cent Go Daddy Coupon code- so go for it.
Each week, CNN's "The Next List" profiles innovators, visionaries and agents of change. They’re not household names just yet, but they’re movers and shakers in their own worlds. We’re introducing them to you because these individuals are steadily mapping the course to the future with their new ideas. On this episode "Leading the Charge in Wireless Health" Leslie A. Saxon, MD,shows us the future of wireless medicine. She blogs:
"Technological advances don’t happen in isolation. There are many different elements— cultural and technological — that must come together to turn an innovation into a scalable business product, and then, possibly—but rarely—a cultural phenomenon.
The Internet, for example, changed banking, journalism, and commerce in many parts of the world. But the connection, information, and convenience it afforded missed medicine because the innovation and the cultural desire hadn’t yet arrived.
A technologies will soon radically change healthcare. The cultural and technological pieces are coming together like a rising storm.
Being exposed to soon-to-be-released technology has also given me special insight into the way the world will look in the near future:
1. Body worn sensors that can transmit your heart rate, blood pressure, brain waves, and other vital signs. Physicians will be looking at this data, and calling you to check in with your specialist;
2. Medical content that is of high quality and accurate and specific to you. Currently, medical content is generalized and not very compelling. (We did a study at USC that showed that many popular medical sites have inaccurate information.) Several companies are working on how to “mashup” different bio statistics. It may seem unusual for you to record your every heart beat today, but it might not be too far fetched for your children. Soon there will be inexpensive, tattoo-like sensors that will record information and filter it through analytics—without relying on highly subjective information;
3. New applications that help patients with chronic diseases manage their care, lab results, multiple physicians and medication, and reward patients. A major issue in medicine is compliance. As a physician, I can only get a snapshot of your life, but if I can learn more about you, and if you can help learn yourself, we will be better partners in your care. Eventually, with the information that we learn, we can spend our resources more wisely. There are a lot of promises around Big Data: there are a lot of smart people working on ways to capture and design smart analytics to sift through terabytes of data that could impact millions, if not billions, of people."
