The Patient as CEO: How Technology Empowers the Healthcare Consumer

Speaking Topics
  • Exponential Technology & The Patient as CEO

    Robin Farmanfarmaian examines how exponential and accelerating technology will enable the healthcare consumer, or "unpatient", to be the key decision maker, executor, driver and ultimately the one responsible on the healthcare team. The Future of the Patient Sensors, portable & affordable medical devices for remote monitoring, patient-provider connectivity, data and precision medicine are all major enablers in the future of patient driven healthcare. Women, as the traditional caretakers, will have increasing access to reliable and effective ways to be in control of their family’s health, putting them on even ground with men with respect to technological advancements. As just one example of gender separation, most medication dosing has been determined based on the average male. The promise of personalized and precision medicine, including personalized medication dosing, is especially important for women, and will have a larger positive impact on this gender. The Future of the Doctor Where doctors will need to become medical engineers, proficient in big data, genome literate, interact with Artificial Intelligence, technically adept, collaborative, and adaptable. Doctors will treat patients from thousands of miles away, utilizing technology like telepresence robots, tricorders, sensors, data tracking devices, and the cloud. Devices such as smart phone EKG machines and smart phone Ophthalmology Instruments will be ubiquitous, in every household in the world. The Future of the Hospital Enabled by sensors everywhere, combined with AI, voice activated EMRs, the patient experience becomes one of comfort instead of inconvenience or pain. A patient getting an infusion will sit down. Their blue tooth enabled epidermal electronics will transmit continuous vitals, eradicating the need for the nurse to constantly take vitals, allowing the nurse to focus on the personal touch and other, life saving tasks, and enhancing the patient experience as they won't be strapped down with wired monitors. Voice activated EMRs and sensors will greatly reduce cross contamination, as the healthcare worker won't need to touch as many surfaces as they do currently.

  • Patient Empowerment and the Future of Medicine:

    The $3T Healthcare industry is integrating advancing technologies, changing everything from diagnostics to the patient experience. Robin's expertise showcases how the convergence of accelerating technology will enable the healthcare consumer to be the key decision maker and ultimately the one responsible on the healthcare team. Technologies including sensors, point-of-care diagnostics, 3D printing, tissue engineering, data, networks, cloud, artificial intelligence and robotics are intersecting healthcare at an increasing rate, fundamentally changing healthcare and allowing the patient to be in control of their own health.

  • Exponential Technology & The Future of Medicine:

    What is the difference between Exponential and Linear with respect to technology? Robin Farmanfarmaian explains what these terms actually mean, including the 6 D’s of Exponential Technology (digitization, disruption, deception, dematerialization, demonetization, democratization), and ties them to real world example companies. Robin then applies this foundation to the world of healthcare, and how the convergence of exponential technologies such as Robotics, Sensors, Artificial Intelligence, 3D Printing, Tissue Engineering, Networks and Connectivity are positively impacting medicine over the next 2, 5 and 10 years, both in the US and the developing world.

  • Corporate Innovation:

    This talk dives into how corporations can easily innovate and stay ahead of being disrupted by technology over the next 2-10 years. Illustrated with real-world examples, some ways corporations can thrive in the context of innovation include: how to work with entrepreneurs and startups; internal and external incubators; venture arms; changing business models; and thinking 2 steps ahead of how your customers will be impacted by technology.

  • The Formula to Build Thought Leadership: How Executives can build their Expertise Profile:

    The way corporations reach and interact with their customer base is shifting. The world of social media and Thought-Leadership provides a way to help drive your image and marketing messages in a way that works in today’s climate. Most CEOs now have a media profile, but how do you build one as an Executive or Entrepreneur?
