Episode 16: Meet the Medical Consumer with Alan Foreman of B-Secur
Medical hardware companies are adopting consumer approaches to data sharing and visualization. Consumer product companies are implementing medical-grade technology. Are these two industries headed for a collision or a convergence? And who exactly is the “medical consumer” that will benefit from this convergence? Alan Foreman, CEO of B-Secur, joins Justin to talk about the value of wearables in preventive care, who medical-grade wearables are really for, and what it will take to deliver truly accessible, actionable medical diagnostics at home.
Justin and Alan explore some common concerns arising from this rapid convergence: Who’s ultimately accountable for acting on the data that wearables generate? Where’s the line between wellness monitoring and invasive surveillance? And can consumer companies stick the landing as they transition into healthcare?
