Over the last decade, a convergence of new concepts in materials science, mechanical engineering, electrical engineering, and advanced manufacturing has led to the emergence of diverse, novel classes of “biocompatible” electronic systems with skin-like physical properties. This talk will describe key ideas and present some of the most recent device examples, including wireless, battery-free skin-integrated devices with applications in maternal, fetal, and neonatal care, in sleep monitoring, and in tracking of patients with aphasia and dysphagia.
Kevin Pho, MD is a practicing board-certified internal medicine physician and a health care social media leader since 2004. He is co-author of the book, "Establishing, Managing, and Protecting Your Online Reputation: A Social Media Guide for Physicians and Medical Practices." Dr. Pho will take you through his decade-long social media journey, and show how social media can make a profound difference in 3 important ways. First, how social media can facilitate the connection between health professionals and patients. Second, how social media can proactively define and protect an online reputation. And finally, how social media can share the stories of those who intersect with our health care system, but are rarely heard from. Not only will you see how social media made a difference in Dr. Pho's life, you will also be inspired to use social media and make your own difference in health care.

Screening of the young athlete ranges from questionnaires to advanced cardiovascular diagnostic testing. The risk of disease in this population is quite low, yet each event has devastating consequences to families and communities. Prevention of even one event makes such clear moral sense that we feel obligated to employ any and all available tools that could possibly help do just that. It is important that we understand the tools available and that we use them effectively to save as many susceptible young lives as possible. It will be the goal of this talk to best understand the tools available with their advantages and disadvantages. We will also discuss the controversies surrounding these population health screening programs.
The stark reality is that soon there will not be enough clinicians to care for our citizens sufficiently. Instead of relying on the more traditional and already overburdened one-to-one model, we must adopt technology that enables one-to-many care delivery models. In particular, artificial intelligence (AI) and other emerging technologies allow for outsourcing of routine tasks to machines, creating space in the schedule for human interaction between clinician and patient. With increasing application of these technologies comes greater associated risks, which range from privacy and security to the ethical use of a growing pool of personal health data. As AI and other telehealth tools intersect with care delivery, how can we minimize the risks while improving care delivery, patient and clinician satisfaction, and clinical outcomes?
