CES 2019 Will Explore How Tech, Health Converge By Michael Weiss How will cutting-edge technology advance healthcare by eliminating the revolving-door practices that give patients mere minutes of face-time with their doctors? And how will these tech advances cut reliance on pharmaceuticals, and bring advanced medical care out of the hospital and into the home? And what are the latest and greatest tech devices in the health field? Healthcare practitioners, experts and tech gurus will tackle these and other questions at the Digital Health Summit, one of the conference tracks at the upcoming CES technology show in Las Vegas. This Digital Health Summit marks its 10th anniversary at CES, which runs from January 8-11, so speakers will take a birds-eye view of the issues and explore how health and tech will unfold over the next decade. In a morning session titled “Unleashing the Power of Innovation on the Next Decade” on Day 1 of the confab, Daniel Kraft, MD, the Faculty Chair for Medicine at the think tank Singularity University and Founder and Chair of Exponential Medicine, will deliver a keynote speech on how technologies of the past, present and future will impact biomedicine and healthcare. Exponential Medicine itself is a conference that aims to break from old thinking about healthcare. Among speakers joining Kraft for his session will be representatives of consumer wearables maker FitBit and Akili Labs, a digital therapeutics company advancing digital treatments though video games. Mehmet Oz, MD, the television personality and Professor of Surgery at Columbia University, will moderate a session on the science of sleep and genetics. Another session will explore how artificial intelligence and other tech enhancements will advance hearables, the next generations of hearing aids; some 48 million Americans, or a fifth of the U.S. population, endure some hearing loss, according to the Hearing Loss Association of America. Another topical session will examine the country’s opioid crisis and how discreet, implantable neural devices can help alleviate pain, a root cause of opioid addiction.
