Democratization Through Access: Next Generation Medical Robotics
Harel Gadot, Company Group Chairman, MEDX Ventures Group
Robotic surgeries have grown drastically in recent years, so why are usability and adoption still lagging? Adoption in developed markets is minimal, while the need continues to grow, especially compared to the overall market opportunity.
The market is still heavily focused on capital equipment and the physician's expertise. There is a new way to approach the robotic surgery space, from fully disposable systems to autonomous robots designed to leverage hardware, software, and imaging to improve access and adoption. You'll hear from industry veteran and expert Harel Gadot about products on the market that are changing the game. And he'll talk about his vision for the surgical robotic industry and the strategies he's deployed to make this a reality. Topics include:
- Empowering all healthcare providers, not just physicians
- Eliminating the capital equipment barrier
- Shifting from robotic-assisted surgery to robotic advised surgery and ultimately autonomous surgery
- Moving from a robotic product to a robotic procedure
How AI & ML Are Advancing Hospital at Home
Caroline Yang, MD, Attending Physician, Hospital at Home Program, Brigham & Women's Hospital
Artificial Intelligence is helping to pioneer an entirely new category of medicine, one that gives clinicians the tools to provide highly sophisticated personalized health analytics that predicts clinical exacerbation in advance of a critical event. Join industry innovators to help understand how an AI-powered platform is empowering digital therapeutics for better patient outcomes. Topics include:
- How physicians and clinical staff are treating patients with acute needs at home through new digital health tools
- How AI and ML technology is being utilized in a web and app-based that allows for better remote monitoring, communication, and inventory management
- Integrating digital tools into clinical practice to expand the hospital at home model
