After the news segment, I interview Dr. Leslie Saxon who heads up the Center for Body Computing at USC, who believes that we’ll soon get 80 percent of our healthcare virtually. She talks about what we’ll need to make that happen and offers up a unique idea—a virtual version of herself that uses AI to provide basic care in her image and demeanor. The implications of all of this are pretty big, so we dig into two of the big ones; privacy and how it changes the relationship individuals have with healthcare. You’ll end up doing a lot more work. It’s an eye-opening episode.
Heart surgeon says tomorrow's healthcare system will be driven by internet-connected phones and body-worn/implantable sensors, and allow people to access experts, information, and diagnoses from anywhere in the world.
Security breaches become more personal and dangerous as digital technology increasingly integrates with our bodies via wearables, prosthetics and medical devices. Yet, perhaps the single biggest risk to the health of future generations—even greater than the breaches themselves—is a paralyzing lack of trust in the care-delivery ecosystem. We could have the most secure digital technologies for patient care, but, if people do not trust them, they will retreat to lesser methods of care.
Led by Dr. Leslie Saxon, this activity has been developed to raise awareness through the insights of leading governmental and other cybersecurity experts who provide reviews surrounding the current and future direction of medical technology cybersecurity for increasing standards of patient care. The webcast is comprised of proceedings from an accredited satellite symposium held during Heart Rhythm. Catch her session via webcast...
