Consumer tech is reshaping nearly every industry. The consumer – empowered by access to better information and technology – is increasingly center stage. Consumers demand and expect more from the products and apps they use in their daily lives. Powered by increasingly low-cost sensors, clever algorithms, artificial intelligence, agile robots and big data, innovative new services, products and businesses are being created every day. More are on the horizon. But will concerns about roles, cybersecurity, privacy, ethics and disrupted businesses block us from benefitting from these innovations? Will the healthcare industry look the same in ten years? How must doctors rethink their practices to harness innovative health technologies? How will the patient experience change? Is HIPAA still relevant? Will consumer devices replace or supplement hospital IT needs?
Be there live to see Hal Wolf III, President and CEO of HIMSS, interview bestselling author Gary Shapiro, whose just-released book Ninja Future focuses on how businesses can prosper as the digital technology revolution unfolds. They will explore how technology and consumerism will change daily living and the healthcare experience.
