What if the patient was completely in charge? If a patient was experiencing an arrhythmia and sweating while at rest, what if they could conduct their own electrocardiogram (EKG) and immediately deliver their results to a cardiologist for evaluation? What if the patient could be put in charge of their own genes, understanding specialized gene therapy methods and automatically arranging appointments with specialists to do so? These actions may seem far away...but are they really that far away?
In this dynamic keynote presentation, join futurist, technologist, and nationally renowned expert Dr. Rubin Pillay as he defines the future of the patient CEO. Hear Dr. Pillay describe how data is already being leveraged in immediate and fascinating ways to deliver more individualized care with more options than ever for treatment, ultimately allowing the patient to wield the greatest power of all--the power of choice.
