My latest Google Glass video interviews are live!
In this two part series of "Point of View - Exploring Health IT Innovation Through Google Glass," I sit down with Dr. Alan Snell, former Chief Medical Informatics Officer of St. Vincent Health to discuss telehealth, remote monitoring and BIG data -- very hot topics in the transformation of healthcare.
As healthcare continues to be revolutionized - we're all going to rely on technology to help us navigate our care and the care of others who count on us (elders and children alike). Technologies like remote monitoring and wearable tech create an enormous amount of data which gives us never before seen opportunities to monitor our health and well being. Consumer engagement (you and me) in the prevention and treatment of disease will become the norm. Innovations in health IT is bringing the future closer (healthitinnovation.com
You don't have to go too far to notice the shift - just look at the smartphone in your pocket or the FitBit, Jawbone, or Samsung or Apple watch on your wrist. Imagine the story the underlying data can tell us about your health and wellness.
As sensors in automobiles helps drivers to stay informed about the temperature, oil, amount of gas and air in the tires, health data will one day empower the dashboard for an individual's health and well-being. I am personally looking forward to the day when I will receive advanced notice regarding possible indications of disease (e.g. early onset diabetes) so that I can take action sooner than at the point of a catastrophic event (a little bit too late). I hope that you would too.
Take a look at the latest interviews and please, be sure to reach out to me with your comments or ideas. If you would like to be interviewed on "Point of View - Exploring Health IT Innovation Through Google Glass" I look forward to hearing from you.
