DOCSF22: Four Technology Superpowers
In this episode, Alex Flores, Head of Global Health Solutions Vertical, Health, and Life Sciences Organization at Intel Corporation, talks about how the company partners and develops technology to solve some of the industry’s most challenging problems. He speaks about what he considers the four technology superpowers and the tech-driven transformation they bring to healthcare.
Alex starts by retelling his last doctor’s visit with his primary care doctor, where he identified four problems during the process: the use of analog practices, siloed data, obstructed workflow efficiencies, and a far-from-perfect patient experience. These issues could be solved with existing technologies. Healthcare should move from a day-to-day care model to one where experimentation, education, and projection give patients a better understanding of their health and what they can do about it.
He introduces the four technology superpowers that enable digital transformation across multiple industries. AI can allow clinicians to focus on their most challenging problems, pervasive connectivity can help clinicians engage anytime and anywhere, and both edge computing and cloud-to-edge infrastructure enable data to be generated, transported, analyzed, and stored. He also talks about Care Syntax’s digital surgery platform that delivers predictive insights in the OR, called Proximie, allowing clinicians to connect live from anywhere in the world, and Magic Leap’s surgical goggles that immerse surgeons digitally to prepare for complex surgeries.
Listen to Alex Flores’s talk on why digital transformation is a shift the industry needs to embrace and the four technology superpowers that will enable it!
