About the Program
Recent advances in information technology have opened an exciting new frontier. A convergence is taking place between medicine and wireless technology, making it possible to change the way medicine and healthcare delivery are managed. Focusing on the coming digital revolution in the health industry, this module introduces how disruptive innovations work, and why the digital revolution is going to transform medicine.
As illustrated by many other industries, digital technologies create opportunities for new innovations and transform already established practices. This module will look at wireless health solutions that can enable physicians, caregivers and patients to cost-effectively prevent, diagnose and monitor health conditions; manage treatment; and enable timely communication and intervention. We will also look into adoption barriers, as well as marketing strategies. These will be illustrated through lectures, case studies, multimedia and live debates on exciting startups as well as the larger players.
This course is unique because it is so new and also synchronized with San Diego’s leading edge on the wireless revolution. By distilling the latest thinking and recent advancements in digital health, this course helps the participants gain insights into the coming digital revolution in healthcare, and be prepared for both the opportunities and challenges.
