New Mobile Age: How Technology Will Extend the Healthspan and Optimize the Lifespan
July 12, 2018, 1:00 pm - 2:00 pm CDT
Joseph Kvedar, MD, Vice President, Connected Health, Partners HealthCare. Digital technologies are creating a new kind of old, enabling individuals to remain vital, engaged and independent through their later years. But it has to be the right technology, designed for an aging population, not just what technologists and app developers think people want. Social robots, artificial intelligence, vocal biomarkers and facial decoding will analyze emotion, anticipate health problems, improve quality of life and enable better relationships with healthcare providers. It’s also about using data to better understand the ‘soft science’ of wellbeing and address the neglected crisis of caregiving. The New Mobile Age is a business model but, more so, it’s a new way of life.
