“Sensor Technologies: The Future of Health?”

Can you imagine a world in which all your physiologic parameters were measured, monitored, and managed in such a way that that you always maintained perfect health? That world may be just around the corner.

Doctors and nurses have long used sensors (of one sort or another) to diagnose and manage illness. In a few short years, however, sensors have become increasingly important in health care as the devices have become more sophisticated and less costly. The advent of real-time data capture and analysis applications is making these new sensors increasingly useful in a range of diseases like diabetes, asthma, and heart failure.

This panel will explore the impact of sensors and the almost unlimited potential to apply these technologies to improve the health of all mankind. If you’re a technologist and you want to get into the health care field this is where you want to be.

The interactive event will feature a number of expert speakers, including:

Indu Subaiya, Health 2.0
Eric Dishman, Intel
David Van Sickle, Reciprocal Labs
DJ Patil, Greylock
