THE THEME

How do you use technology to humanize healthcare – for 8 billion people or for one individual? The average visit with a patient lasts 8 minutes. What if you could get all the info about a patient in less than 2 minutes so you can spend the rest of the visit talking with and listening to them?

Would healthcare be different if you could use your patient’s DNA to eliminate or significantly reduce medical errors? How can you use AI to improve diagnosis accuracy? Can software be as good as drugs but without the same cost or side-effects? What rights and obligations should your “digital twin” have in a digital healthcare world? Will your virtual reality therapy or mental health app meet the neuroethics standards of tomorrow?

Do you know how to measure or extract value from Big Data for each patient? Can we build robots that will show not only intelligence but emotion?
