#66 Jamey Edwards
#66 Talking Humanizing Healthcare with Jamey Edwards and João Bocas – The Wearables Expert
In this episode, they discussed about Humanizing Healthcare and the many important aspects of the role of technology in Healthcare.
Humanizing Healthcare is not just about technology, though it does play a big role. It’s about how you interact with patients, how you care for them as human beings, and how your systems change to fit their needs. Technology has the power to bring more clearly into focus who are providing the care and what it’s like to be on the other side of it, but it must be accompanied by the right attitude in all other aspects of healthcare.
The best healthcare is not just about fancy gadgets, though they do make a big difference. It’s about how you interact with your patients, how you care for them as people, and how the systems evolve around their needs. Technology can bring more clearly into focus the people who provide that care and what it feels like to be on the receiving end of it, but it must be supported by the right attitude in all other aspects of healthcare.
#67 Ann Mond Johnson
#67 Telemedicine and Telehealth discussion with Ann Mond Johnson from American Telemedicine Association
They talked about Telemedicine and Telehealth in Healthcare. As well, Ann and João also discussed industry standards, trends and the role of Technology in Healthcare.
The role of technology in healthcare is growing exponentially and reaching far beyond the needs of the professional healthcare provider.

#68 Ian Weissman
#68 Health Equity, AI in Radiology and Physician Burnout discussion with Ian Weissman
Ian is a Radiologist at the Milwaukee Veterans Affairs Medical Center and Family Centred Care Outreach committee and President of the Wisconsin Radiology Society. He talked about Health Equity , AI in Radiology and Physician Burn out in Healthcare.
Health equity is a state where all people have the same opportunities to be healthy and lead productive lives. There are many barriers to achieving health equity, including social determinants (such as poverty or education) that affect access to quality healthcare services. The healthcare system must work to remove these barriers so that everyone has an equal chance at improving their health outcomes.
Artificial Intelligence (AI) is a technology that can be used for many things in the medical field, but one of its most exciting applications is in radiology, the use of computers to assist with radiologic image interpretation tasks. AI can analyze millions of images very quickly and provide doctors with information about specific diseases or conditions that would otherwise take them hours or days to find out on their own. This technology helps doctors provide more accurate diagnoses while saving time and money for both themselves and their patients.
#69 Tomaž Gornik
#69 Value Based Healthcare discussion with Tomaž Gornik and João Bocas – The Wearables Expert
Tomaž talked about Value Based Healthcare, Healthcare is going through a profound transformation right now.
Value-based healthcare is all about how we pay for healthcare and, more importantly, how we pay for better outcomes. It’s about rewarding providers who provide high quality care at lower cost.
The way we currently pay for healthcare creates incentives to do more and more tests and procedures, which creates costs that the system has trouble keeping up with. The result is higher costs for patients and insurance companies alike. Value-based care pays providers based on whether they get their patients’ health outcomes right.
#70 Matthew Holt
#70 Health Policy and the Future of Care discussion with Matthew Holt | João Bocas | Digital Salutem
In this episode, they talked about Health Policy in Healthcare and many aspects of care that are under transformation. As digital health evolves, the continuum of care needs to be redesigned.
The digital health revolution is transforming the healthcare industry at a rapid pace. This is not just about technology: it’s about how we deliver care and the ways we improve outcomes. As digital health evolves, the continuum of care needs to be redesigned.
The health care industry is undergoing a transformation. As the digital health revolution continues to grow, many aspects of care that were once under the purview of medical professionals are now being handled by patients themselves.
This new role for patients has created an opportunity to rethink how care is delivered and managed as a whole. The continuum of care, which includes all aspects of treatment from diagnosis to recovery, must be redesigned in order to meet the needs of modern patients who are more independent and empowered than ever before.
#71 Dr Rizwan Malik
#71 Radiology, Artificial Intelligence and HealthTech discussion with Dr Rizwan Malik and João Bocas
Rizwan talked about Radiology AI and HealthTech We checked the pulse of Digital Healthcare as the industry transforms in a fast manner.
The healthcare industry is undergoing a major transformation, and radiologists are at the forefront of this change.
Radiology is an important part of the healthcare system that has traditionally been highly manual and time-consuming. The process of reading images and interpreting them can be time consuming, but it’s also highly important, as it helps doctors make diagnoses and come up with treatment plans.
AI has been applied to various aspects of healthcare, including radiology. By using AI to analyze radiological images, radiologists are able to spend less time on routine tasks and more on complex cases that need their attention.
#72 Danielle Siarri
#72 Nursing Informatics globally and folding AI into practice discussion with Danielle Siarri
Innonurse talked about Nursing and the importance of Nursing Informatics in Healthcare using AI.
n order to understand why nursing informatics is so important, it’s important to understand what it means. Nursing informatics refers to the use of technology in order to improve the quality of care provided by nurses. For example, if you’re trying to diagnose someone who has a fever and you use an app that tells you whether or not they have meningitis based on their symptoms and other information about them (like age), then you’re using nursing informatics!
AI-assisted diagnosis relies on machine learning algorithms that are trained on data from millions of past cases. This allows them to learn from previous mistakes and apply what they’ve learned in order to make more accurate diagnoses than humans could ever hope for. However, these systems still need guidance from human experts when making decisions about patient care.
#73 Stephen Docherty
#73 HealthTech and Innovation in the NHS with Stephen Docherty | João Bocas | Digital Salutem
The topic was HealthTech and Innovation in the NHS.
The NHS is huge and complicated, but its size isn’t the only thing slowing down adoption of HealthTech. It also has a long history of being resistant to change—and there are some good reasons for that resistance. The NHS was founded in 1948 as part of a socialized healthcare system that sought to treat everyone equally regardless of their ability to pay for medical services. That means the NHS has always been focused on providing treatments and medications for patients without worrying about how much money they had or whether or not they were insured.
In recent years, however, HealthTech companies have started to introduce new models into healthcare that could revolutionize how we deliver care in England and Wales, and we’re seeing more and more ways technology can help us provide better care at lower costs than ever before.
#74 The Future of Nursing discussion with Dr. Beverly Malone | CEO at National League for Nursing
National League for Nursing’s CEO talked about the Future of Nursing, Health Education and Healthcare. The future of nursing is a topic that has been discussed quite a bit in the past few years. As technology advances and health care becomes more accessible to everyone, nurses have had to adapt their practices to keep up with the times.
One area where this has become especially apparent is in online learning. In the past, students would have to attend physical classrooms in order to be able to take classes and earn degrees. Now, with online learning, it’s possible for students to study from anywhere in the world without having to leave their homes or jobs.
This isn’t just useful for people who are looking for a career change but also for those who are looking for more flexibility in their lives. Nurses can now spend less time commuting and more time playing with their children or spending time with family members without having to worry about missing class or missing deadlines because they were unable to access an office computer due to technical issues or other reasons like inclement weather conditions that might cause delays or cancellations due to snowstorms or other natural disasters like hurricanes which could affect power lines so they can’t access their homes either during this time period until such time as they get back on track again.
#75 Blockchain Technology in Healthcare with Chrissa McFarlane | João Bocas | The Wearables Expert
Chrissa and João talked about Blockchain Technology in Healthcare.
Blockchain technology is being used to address numerous issues in the healthcare industry. Because blockchain technology can be applied to virtually any industry, it is no surprise that it has found its place in the healthcare industry.
The use of blockchain technology in healthcare has been around for a while now, but the technology is still considered to be in its infancy. This means that there are still many ways that blockchain can be used to improve upon existing processes, while also providing new opportunities for innovation.
#76 Susanne Baars
#76 Precision Medicine and the Future of Cancer Care with Susanne Baars and João Bocas
She talked about the Precision Medicine and the Future of Cancer care in Healthcare. Precision medicine is a new way of understanding the potential of cancer treatments. It’s based on the theory that every person’s cancer is unique, so they need a treatment that’s specific to them. This is why precision medicine is so exciting—it can be used to develop personalized treatments for patients with cancer.
The future of cancer care will involve more than just individualized treatments: it will also mean using technology like artificial intelligence (AI) and machine learning (ML) to analyze your genetic makeup, looking for patterns among large groups of people with similar diseases or conditions. This kind of analysis could lead to better drug therapies and vaccines for all kinds of cancers.
So what does this mean for you? Well, one day soon it may be possible for scientists to identify specific genetic markers in your body’s cells that signal whether or not you’re susceptible to certain types of cancer, and if so, which ones! This would allow doctors to tailor their treatments specifically for your unique needs, rather than relying on one-size-fits-all approaches like chemotherapy or radiation therapy.
#77 Dima Gazda
#77 LifeLike Robotic Limbs for Humans with Dima Gazda & João Bocas | The Wearables Expert
They talked about Lifelike Robotic Limbs for Humans. These wearable types of Prosthetic Innovation will have multiple applications in the future.
The industry has been around since the late 1800’s, but it hasn’t changed much since then. The current prosthetic devices are mostly made out of metal and plastic, which can be uncomfortable for patients to wear and causes them to easily break. There are also some issues with the way these devices are manufactured; they are often mass produced in factories overseas, which means they don’t always fit the patient properly or need to be replaced frequently due to poor stitching or materials.
There are many innovative companies that have developed new technologies for this industry by using 3D printing and other advanced manufacturing techniques, but these technologies are still being used on a small scale compared with traditional manufacturing methods. We think we can help change that by putting these new techniques into practice on a larger scale and making them accessible to more people who need prosthetics
#78 Dr. Ami Bhatt
#78 Consumerism as Patient Agency discussion with Dr. Ami Bhatt & João Bocas – The Wearables Expert
The Chief Innovation Officer at the American College of Cardiology talked about Consumerism as Patient Agency. Consumer health and digital health are now taking a new dimension. The role of Digital Health is impacting Patient consumerism like never before.
Consumerism is often misunderstood as just another term for “buying things.” But it’s actually much more than that. Consumerism is a way of thinking about the world around us—how we interact with other people and what we buy or don’t buy based on those interactions. It’s not just about spending money; it’s also about being conscious of what you’re buying, why you’re buying it, and where your money goes when you make purchases.
The idea behind using consumerism in healthcare is that if patients feel like they’re being heard by their providers when they bring up concerns about their treatments, then they’ll be more likely to trust those providers going forward. This can lead to better outcomes for everyone involved!
#79 Indra Joshi
#79 The Value of AI in Clinical Settings discussion with Indra Joshi & João Bocas, Wearables Expert
Indra talked about the Value of AI in Clinical Settings in Healthcare. As AI is often overused as a buzz term , but not often understood. Indra sheds some light on how to leverage AI to its full capabilities.
The technology has already made its way into many aspects of healthcare, from helping doctors make quicker diagnoses to improving the ease and efficiency of medical records. There are still some challenges that need to be overcome before AI can truly take hold in clinical settings, but experts believe it will happen soon. Artificial intelligence is a game-changer for the medical industry.
It can help medical professionals do their jobs better and more efficiently, which means that patients are receiving better care. While artificial intelligence has been present in clinical settings for decades, it’s only recently that we’ve seen its true potential emerge. Artificial intelligence can help doctors make diagnoses based on an analysis of their patient’s data, while also providing them with insights into their patients’ health that they might not have otherwise noticed.
#80 AI – Artificial Intelligence in Healthcare discussion with Dr. Janak Gunatilleke | João Bocas
They yalked about artificial intelligence in Healthcare. We discuss many aspects of AI in Healthcare and ways to improve it to make the most out of it.
AI is a powerful tool to help doctors make better decisions, but it’s not without its flaws. Doctors are using artificial intelligence (AI) to improve patient care, but there are issues that need to be addressed in order for them to get the most out of this technology.
One such issue is bias. Many systems that rely on AI have been shown to be biased against certain populations based on their race or gender. For example, a study from 2017 found that an automated system used by radiologists was more likely to misdiagnose darker skinned women than lighter skinned men. Another problem with AI in healthcare is that it can’t always answer all questions, even if it has access to more data than human doctors do.
A recent paper published in Nature Medicine found that an AI system trained on medical records from one hospital was unable to predict patient outcomes at another hospital where they had different protocols and procedures. This means that some patients might not receive the right treatment if they go to a different facility because their records aren’t available there or they don’t follow the same standards as their current doctor does when making decisions about treatment options for each individual case.
#81 Kelly Benning
#81 The Epidemic of Hypertension discussion with Kelly Benning of LiveMetric | João Bocas
They talked about the Epidemic of Hypertension and how can Digital Health and #Wearables make an impact and help patients. They also covered the traditional cup monitor and the concept of making passive and remote monitoring more accessible to patients.
The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) estimates that one in three Americans has high blood pressure, also known as hypertension. The condition is considered to be a major risk factor for heart disease, stroke, and other health problems.
While there are many different ways to manage hypertension, including lifestyle changes and medication, there’s also a new way to help patients track their blood pressure: wearables.
Wearables are quickly becoming the go-to accessory for people who want to keep track of their health. They can tell you how much sleep you got last night, how many steps you’ve taken today, and even if your heart rate is too fast or too slow. Wearables are especially helpful for people with chronic conditions like hypertension because they can be used at home without having to visit a doctor’s office or hospital every time you need your blood pressure checked.
#82 Edward Marx
#82 Digital Acceleration, not Transformation conversation with Edward Marx of Divurgent | João Bocas
Edaward talked about digital transformation in healthcare and we explore this concept of digital acceleration and not transformation.
Healthcare is a field that’s always changing, and it’s no secret that the way we deliver care today looks very different from how we delivered it even five years ago. The way we do things now will be different again in five years.
That’s why we need to do everything we can to ensure that healthcare stays ahead of the curve. And if you think about it, the pace at which technology changes is one of the biggest drivers of change in our industry.
In order to stay on the cutting edge of innovation, we need to make sure that digital acceleration plays a big part in our strategy for healthcare moving forward.
#83 Tom Lawry
#83 AI (Artificial Intelligence) in Health and Medicine with Tom Lawry | João Bocas Digital Salutem
This time the topic was Artificial Intelligence in health and medicine.
AI is starting to penetrate a number of industries. We’ve discussed ways that AI technology can have an impact on life as we know it. With applications such as chatbots, virtual assistants, and surgical assistants all gaining public acceptance, we think that AI’s evolution will take some unexpected turns in the upcoming years.
Artificial Intelligence has proven to be a valuable resource in health and medicine already. But, as we become more familiar with this new technology, there are bound to be new applications for it as well. At this point, there are still quite a few obstacles keeping AI technology from achieving its full potential. However, every day it continues to prove that it has the potential to impact our lives in ways we never imagined before.
Even if you don’t live long enough to gain any sort of personal benefit from Artificial Intelligence, future generations will undoubtedly thank us for laying the groundwork for these amazing machines to come into their own and improve every aspect of their lives in ways beyond our wildest expectations

The future is looking very exciting for health tech. With the rate of technology development over the past twenty or so years, there are plenty of predictions that technology will have advanced to a point where we can eliminate degenerative diseases as well replicate various vital organs.
There is also a lot of promise with regard to how technology will be able to assist those who are suffering from degenerative diseases. These are the ideas that will lead humanity forward in terms of medicine.
#85 J. Cris Salinas
#85 The Intersection of Wearables & Sensors in MedTech Discussion with J. Cris Salinas | João Bocas
Cris talked about The Intersection of Wearables and Sensors and Their Role in the MedTech Industry
Sensors are devices that measure physical properties or chemical changes within their surrounding environment, such as temperature or pressure. They can also be used to detect electromagnetic radiation, such as light or sound waves.
The most common types of sensors include accelerometers (which measure acceleration), pressure gauges (which measure force), flow meters (which measure fluid flow), and gyroscopes (which measure angular velocity). Wearables and sensors are a natural fit for the medical technology industry, as they can be used to track the health of patients and even predict medical issues before they occur.
The most common wearable device used in medicine is a fitness tracker, which helps doctors and nurses keep track of their patients’ movement, heart rate, blood pressure, and more. The data gathered from these devices can help doctors better understand their patients’ health and how they respond to treatment.
#86 The Wearables in Health discussion with Pierre-Alexandre Fournier | João Bocas
They talked about The Wearables in Healthcare. They cover collaborations and also what we expect coming in the future.
The use of wearables in healthcare is growing rapidly. They are used to monitor and track patients’ health, and they can be used to inform doctors about a patient’s condition. Wearables have been used for the monitoring of heart rate, blood pressure, and other vital signs.
They can also be used to track activity levels and sleep patterns. Wearables are becoming more common in hospitals as well. The technology has been implemented in operating rooms to help with surgical procedures and monitor anesthesia levels throughout the procedure.
The Wearables and mhealth are the new trend in the medical industry. These devices can be used in many different ways to help patients and doctors.

#88 Digital Healthcare & Medicine in the front lines discussion with Jonathan Baktari | João Bocas
This time the topic was Digital Healthcare in the front lines of Medicine.
The future of digital technologies’ impact on healthcare is an exciting one. We are already seeing it in the form of apps that help patients track their medications, monitor their symptoms, and connect with their doctors.
What’s more, we’re starting to see the way that digital technologies can be used to provide care prior to a patient even showing up at the doctor’s office. This is especially true when it comes to chronic conditions like diabetes or heart disease. And it’s not just about collecting data; it’s also about using that data to help prevent serious health issues from developing in the first place
#89 Omri Shor
#89 The Digital Pharma Experience conversation with Omri Shor | João Bocas – The Wearables Expert
He talked about The Digital Pharma Experience.
The pharmaceutical industry is one of the most advanced when it comes to using digital technology, which is why they have been able to create new ways to improve patient outcomes. The advances made in this area have allowed medical professionals to perform their jobs more effectively and efficiently. As the healthcare industry continues to evolve, it’s important to keep pace with new technologies that will help patients receive better care.
The use of digital technologies has been shown to improve patient satisfaction scores and reduce costs by reducing errors and increasing efficiency. The advancement of digital technology has changed the way we live and do business. The role of pharma companies is no exception. The same technologies that are being used for personal entertainment, social media and communication are also used by the pharma industry to promote their products.
#90 Ron Fridman
#90 Cardiac Monitoring, Diagnostics to Patient Management discussion with Ron Fridman | João Bocas
This time they talked about the missed Puzzle in Cardiac monitoring, from diagnostics to patient management.
Wearables is one of the most popular areas in the field of wearable technology and I think it will be a trend that never goes away. The reason behind this is the fact that wearables does more than just track your daily activity, it is also able to record what you are eating and how much you are sleeping each day. It allows us to reach our wellness goals by keeping track of these factors and pushing yourself hard to reach those goals.
The medical devices are more advanced and accurate than the wearable tech expected to be introduced soon, but will they be the determining factor in how successful each product is? If a wearable device is required to be worn on the body continuously and accurately track useful information, then wearability may be the deciding factor. However, if wearability is a negative aspect of the medical devices, then medical grade features will become even more critical to the average person wanting such an invention for tracking information about their health.
#91 Michael J. Moore
#91 Digital Health Success and the Importance of Talent with Michael J. Moore | João Bocas
Michael talked about the importance of talent to achieve digital health success. Talent is the most important factor in digital health success.
There’s a reason why there are so many resources and courses designed to teach you how to code, or how to become a project manager, or how to do QA. These skills are vital for digital health companies, but they’re not the only things that matter when it comes to your company’s success.
Talent is the most important factor in digital health success and it’s what keeps your company going. Talent is key in every part of your business: sales, marketing, product development… even customer service needs talented people.
You need talented people on your team who can bring their A-game every day. They need to be able to communicate effectively with each other and with clients; they need to be flexible enough to take on new challenges; and they need to be able to work well under pressure.
With digital health on the rise, it’s important to keep in mind that success is not just about having the right technology, it’s also about having the right people.
#92 Jason Grant
#92 Mental Health Research and Community Practice discussion with Jason Grant | João Bocas
They talked about mental health , community research practices and digital innovations.
The topic of mental health is one that has been gaining attention in the past few years. With the rise of social media and other technologies, there has been a lot of discussion about how these developments affect people’s mental health and well-being.
Community research practices and digital innovations are two areas of study that are rapidly growing in the field of psychology. Currently, there is a lack of research on these two topics. This lack of research means that there is limited understanding about the effects of these practices on mental health and community members’ ability to access services.
#93 Grace Vinton
#93 Empowering the Patient Voice in Innovation with Grace Vinton | João Bocas
Grace talked about patient voice in innovation and how we can fix a common problem of dismissing patients’ interactions and contributions to create new innovations.
We hear it all the time: patients want to be heard. They want more than just a place to get their treatment, they want to feel like what they have to say matters and that their experiences can help shape how the healthcare system works. And yet, we still often hear about patients being ignored when it comes to innovation.
It’s not hard to understand why this happens. Doctors and nurses are busy people who are trained to focus on the technical aspects of their jobs, but we also know that there’s a lot of value in listening to patients’ interactions—and that it can lead directly to better care for everyone involved.
#94 Digital Health for your Vagina & #FemTech with Malia Funk | João Bocas – The Wearables Expert
The founder of POV talked about the femtech industry and how can digital health can impact women’s health. The femtech industry is growing fast, and it’s no surprise why.
Women are more than half the population, and they have a lot of needs that aren’t being met by existing technology. This is especially true when it comes to their health—women are more likely than men to suffer from depression, anxiety, and other mental health issues. And when they do, they’re often less likely to seek help because of stigma surrounding mental illness in women.
So what does this mean for the future of digital health? It means that #digitalhealth can be used to help women manage their mental health more effectively and efficiently. We’ve seen some great examples of this already: apps like Calm offer guided meditation programs for people who want an alternative to medication or therapy. And there are also apps like Woebot that offer real-time support from trained therapists via text message or messenger app in case you’re feeling especially low or anxious.
#95 Ana Maiques
#95 How Neurotwins & Digital Twins are Helping Patients, conversation with Ana Maiques | João Bocas
Ana talked about Neuro Twins & Digital Twins – How a digital copy of your brain is helping personalize therapies in #patients from brain diseases.
Neuro Twins is a company that is working on helping personalize therapies in patients from brain diseases. Neuro Twins has developed a digital twin of brains, this means that they have a digital copy of your brain. This digital copy of your brain can be used to better understand how you work, how you react to drugs, and what treatments work best for you.
Digital twins are copies of real-world systems. These systems are being used by companies like Tesla and Uber to help them understand how their cars or self-driving cars work. The same concept applies to our brains. A digital twin of your brain will help NeuroTwins understand how your brain works, so they can create better personalized therapies for patients suffering from brain diseases.
Neuro Twins and Digital Twins are helping to personalize therapies in patients from brain diseases by giving them a digital copy of their brains.
#96 David Meltzer
#96 Entrepreneurship and Happiness discussion with David Meltzer | João Bocas – The Wearables Expert
This speaker talked about entrepreneurship and happiness, in their conversation with touched on a very important aspect of life, happiness and gratitude.
There is no doubt that human beings are willing to pursue growth and progress, but there is another evolutionary factor that determines how we act. Psychological studies suggest that even relatively simple living creatures, like snails, display a basic level of optimism. Despite the lack of intelligence, and a brain which contains less than one million neurons (compared to one billion for humans), snails tend to go towards the light, trying to find a way out of their shells when put in a dark place.
This type of behavior is not being learned from experience; it is an inherent mechanism of evolution, which all life forms share. In other words, we are wired to hope for the best, even if our most basic instincts tell us that it is futile. However, we are also endowed with free will and can choose what we do and how we live our lives. That’s why you should never forget to look back once in a while and notice small positive things that happen in your every day life. It will help you keep things in perspective and maintain focus on the bigger picture, regardless of how turbulent times may seem.
#97 Jan Beger
#97 Health Systems and Digital Health conversation with Jan Beger | João Bocas- The Wearables Expert
Jan alked about health systems and digital health. Considering many aspects for successful implementation of Digital Health transformation.
The healthcare industry is in the midst of a revolution. Digital health is on the rise, with patients demanding more control over their own care and providers looking for ways to improve efficiency. But even though digital health has great potential, there are many challenges involved with its implementation.
Health systems are currently facing the challenge of transforming their existing infrastructure and processes to accommodate the new digital health era that is arriving. It’s a lot like the shift from analog to digital television, we all knew that it would happen, but no one knew how long it would take or how we’d make the switch.
And yet, here we are: we’re talking about Digital Health as if it were a given. We know that it’s going to happen, but we don’t know exactly when or how it will come about.
#98 Dr. David Rabin
#98 Wearable Technology and Mental Health with Dr. David Rabin and João Bocas
The topic was Wearable Technology and mental health.
Wearables are a great way to monitor your mental health because they can be used to track things like stress levels, sleep quality, and even emotions. This kind of data helps users understand what’s happening with their minds and bodies on a day-to-day basis, which allows them to make better decisions about how they want to manage their lives.
But aside from just keeping tabs on your mental state over time, wearables can also offer real-time feedback on what’s happening right now—like if you’re experiencing an anxiety attack or if you’re feeling depressed enough that you need help right away. And this information could save someone’s life
#99 Jennifer Bae
#99 How Digital Health help meet Healthcare Capacity Goals discussion with Jennifer Bae & João Bocas
She talked about how digital health can help meet global healthcare capacity goals.
Digital health is a very important part of the healthcare industry. The goal of digital health is to help meet healthcare capacity goals. Digital health helps to improve patient care and make it more efficient.
With the introduction of digital health, healthcare providers can better serve their patients by providing them with faster access to care. This means that patients do not have to wait for an appointment or go through the hassle of waiting in line at the doctor’s office. It also allows patients to interact with their doctor remotely, which means they don’t have to travel as much or take time off from work if they need medical attention.
From Digital Health and Wearables series to Healthcare Uncomplicated
It’s exciting to hear that the Digital Health and Wearables Series has now evolved into the Healthcare Uncomplicated series. With this change, it’s clear that the mission has shifted towards making healthcare simpler and more accessible for everyone.
Healthcare is a complex industry, and it can be difficult for patients to navigate through the system. The Healthcare Uncomplicated series aims to change this by bringing together experts from various fields to discuss ways to simplify healthcare and make it more patient-centric.
One of the goals of Healthcare Uncomplicated is to remove the barriers that prevent patients from accessing healthcare services. This includes reducing costs, improving access to care, and leveraging technology to create a more streamlined healthcare system.
The new series will also focus on addressing some of the biggest challenges in healthcare, such as the opioid epidemic, mental health, and chronic disease management. By bringing together experts in these areas, we can work towards finding innovative solutions to these complex problems.
Ultimately, the Healthcare Uncomplicated series aims to create a more patient-focused healthcare system that is easier to navigate and provides better outcomes for everyone. We are excited to see what this new series will bring and look forward to continuing to learn from experts in the field as we work towards fixing healthcare.
#100 Dr. Eric Topol
#100 Taking the pulse on Digital Health with Dr. Eric Topol and João Bocas | 2 Years Anniversary
This was a very special episode that marks the 2 year anniversary of the YouTube Channel. The Topic was Taking the pulse on Digital Health.
Digital Health moves very slowly, we’ve been ready to see a roll out for well over a decade and we have seen some progress obviously the pandemic helped user in Telehealth which is one component but there’s so much more especially now that we have the tools of AI to help bring these into the real practice.
There’s been some progress we still don’t have the regard for sensors that I would hope we would broad use of sensors we’re still not liberating from keyboard for clinicians.
We’ve made very little progress towards hospital at home which should be attainable, there’s many things we can do that we haven’t done yet, I would still say we’re in the first inning of the digital Health progress and we’re still largely an analog entity unfortunately.
The digital health revolution has brought about a lot of changes in the healthcare industry. Technology has made it possible for patients to access healthcare services from the comfort of their homes, and doctors can now monitor patients’ health remotely using wearables and other connected devices. This has made healthcare more efficient and convenient, especially during the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic.
The Digital Health and Wearables Series has been at the forefront of this revolution, bringing together experts who are driving change in the industry. Their knowledge and expertise have helped us understand the challenges and opportunities of digital health, and how we can leverage technology to improve patient outcomes.
