The Future of Health and Medicine: Where Can Technology Take Us?
From the perspective of a leading physician, scientist, inventor and innovator, this presentation examines rapidly emerging, game changing and convergent technology trends and how they are and will be leveraged to change the face of healthcare and the practice of medicine in the next decade. Daniel Kraft offers a fast-paced look at the next few years of innovations in medicine, powered by new tools, test and apps that bring diagnostic information right to the patient's bedside.
Wearable technology is often pointed to as the signature innovation of our new era. The real-time data created by both healthy and the sick could lead to brand new knowledge of behavior, risks and outcomes, which can bring about nimbler providers and healthier populations. The work to be done with the abundance of data, however, often appears overwhelming. Experts and indistry leaders will give attendees a glimpse of the enormous capabilities of wearable devices, followed by a panel discussion on the market forces and practical collaborations needed to activate the data needed to turn healthcare on its head.

Like the proverbial silent tree falling in the forest, technologies won't make the splash we hope them to if caregivers aren't trained to use them. Medical schools, however, are learning that it's more than just training that's needed - it's an entirely new way of thinking. This panel will give an audience a sneak peek at how Cleveland Clinic is investing in a new generation of doctors who will be working alongside cognitive computers, augmented reality and more.

Listening to the Patient: Measuring the True Value of Medical Technologies
Clinical trials of new medical technologies provide a wealth of information on the safety and effectiveness of therapies. While the clinical community is able to answer questions about mortality, complications and device performance, the most important question may never get answered through traditional data collection: How do patients feel? The true value in medical technologies comes when patients not only experience the resolution of their disease or symptoms, but also enjoy a better quality of life. Edwards Lifesciences is embarking on a new study to better understand what's important to patients with aortic stenosis and how one of its heart valve therapies is deliverying value as it relates to their recovery and quality of life.

While there are many definitions for “perfect storm”, Wikipedia describes it best as “an actual phenomenon that happens to occur in such a confluence, resulting in an event of unusual magnitude.”
A perfect storm of innovation and cybersecurity is exactly what happened at the HIMSS Innovation Center between Oct 22 and Oct 26. Some of the confluence was planned and some of it was happenstance.
Last week at the Cleveland Clinic’s annual Medical Innovations Summit, Daniel Kraft, chair of medicine and neuroscience at Singularity University, and an oncologist, painted a dazzling picture of a healthcare future where digital tools empower everyone and can solve several of healthcare’s bigger problems.
Immunotherapy that helps kids fight cancer without chemo. Automated cars that reduce accidents and hospitalizations. Virtual reality systems that help surgeons carry out procedures more safely. These are some of the medical innovations that could transform health care in 2017, according to the Cleveland Clinic, a large nonprofit hospital system.
