“The day healthcare can fully embrace AI is the day we have a revolution in terms of cutting costs and improving care.”–Fei-Fei Li
In part two of this 2-part series, Oriana Beaudet and Dan Pesut discuss a healthcare future that includes automation, artificial intelligence and robots. And what about potential disruptive futures that change everything?
“Constant attention by a good nurse may be just as important as a major operation by a surgeon.”
– Dag Hammarskjold
While many futures are generalists, there is a need for foresight professionals centered on specific fields, as well. Perhaps no area is more in need of innovative outlooks for the future than healthcare. With rising costs, aging populations and personnel shortages, the challenges are many. But so are the opportunities to employ emerging technologies. In the first part of a two part series, host Mark Sackler discusses these challenge with two nursing Ph.D.’s, Oriana Beaudet and Dan Pesut. Part One addresses the need for foresight both in nursing specifically and healthcare in general, as well as the global challenges of an aging population. Part two will drill down to individual ssues, including automation, robotics and artificial intelligence as caregiving tools for the future.

“If pregnancy were a book, they’d cut the last two chapters.”–Nora Ephron
It seems that every other person is wearing a fitness tracker these days. I am one of them. But wearable bio-medical devices aren’t just for normal activity. They are being developed, marketed, and used to monitor a variety of health conditions, seemingly for just about everything and everyone. Now–yes–even unborn babies have a wearable health monitor. Developed an marketed by San Francisco-based Bloomlife, it tracks a variety of parameters during the course of pregnancy. You might call it a fitness tracker for the unborn baby.
In this episode, Bloomlife CEO and co-founder, Eric Dy, talks about the origin and functions of their breakthrough device, where it and the market for wearable health trackers are going, and how he and his partner won a trip to Neckar Island–just one of three companies out of 1300 competing in a tech innovation contest–to present to Richard Branson
