ATUL KUMAR APRIL 11, 2019 The Population Health concept represented a change in the focus from the individual-level, characteristic of most mainstream medicine but recent advances in technologies like AI, IOT, 5G are increasing the possibilities of Personalized Precision Health to complement Population Health Interventions. Let me share a few examples.
“Using the tools of precision medicine, such as big data analytics and genomics, the goal of precision health is to predict, prevent and cure disease — precisely. Critically, in that order,” said Lloyd Minor, M.D., the Carl and Elizabeth Naumann Dean of the Stanford University School of Medicine in Palo Alto, California
Thanks to the spread of the internet to remotest parts of the world and advances in fast wireless internet 5G, we are approaching the “End of Geography”. A person sitting in Africa or Asia can access healthcare from advanced centers like Stanford Health in USA. This has already happened in the knowledge economy where anyone with a smartphone has acess to all the knowledge of the world via Wikipedia, YouTube, Khan Academy,Coursera, MIT Open course, etc or e-commerce via Amazon, and payment platforms like Paypal, Stripe, Paytm besides current leaders like Visa, Mastercard. Thanks to communication and collaboration platforms like Google Suite, Skype global teams are already collaborating with each other in education and e-commerce. That level of collaboration is now possible and emerging in Healthcare too via TeleHealth backed by AI & Robotics. Patients can be seen remotely via Video and served via Robotics & AI. Their diagnostics measurements are available on the cloud to their care team which combined with AI tools to triage the case to remote health at their home/workplace or urgent care as needed. This will not only reduce the cost of care but also increase the quality of care. Regulators adapting fast to these changes CMS-loosens-medicare-advantage-telehealth Come to #TiECon2019.
