Join us for a book signing with Dr. Joe Kvedar, featuring:
In Dr. Kvedar’s first book, published in late 2015, he explores The Internet of Healthy Things. By 2020, experts predict that more than 20 billion everyday objects will be able to capture, receive and share data via a vast, interconnected global network linked together by inexpensive sensors, GPS and ’the cloud.’ Just around the corner, real time biometric data will be automatically captured and used to learn more about the impact of lifestyle on chronic diseases and wellness, and ultimately change behavior to improve our health. Using real-world examples, observations and recommendations from his new book, The Internet of Healthy Things, Dr. Kvedar describes how virtually any object -- a watch, a shirt, the steering wheel of your car or the mattress you sleep on -- can be transformed into a data-collecting object that used to improve your health. Dr. Harry Leider, Chief Medical Officer at Walgreens, wrote the Foreword.
This is the subject of Dr. Kvedar’s latest book, published in October, that describes how connected health technologies will enable individuals to remain vital, engaged and independent as we age, and create a better healthcare system for everyone. But it has to be the right technology, designed for an aging population, not just what technologists and app developers think people want. Social robots, artificial intelligence, vocal biomarkers and facial decoding will analyze emotion, anticipate health problems, improve quality of life and enable better relationships with healthcare providers. It's also about using data to better understand the 'soft science' of wellbeing and address the neglected crisis of caregiving. The New Mobile Age is a business model but, more so, it's a new way of life. Dr. Charlotte Yeh, Chief Medical Officer at AARP, wrote this foreword.
