Neuroscience 2.0 – The Future of Brain Optimization

Advances in information technology are rapidly transforming our lives, but our brains are struggling to keep up with our information-saturated surroundings. As a result, our educational systems, workplaces, health, and relationships are suffering.

Neuroscientist Adam Gazzaley, a trailblazer in the study of how our brains process information, will take us on a unique journey into how and why we struggle with interference in our inner and outer worlds. He’ll share a novel approach from his research center at the University of California-San Francisco, Neuroscape, which uses custom-designed video games to achieve cognitive enhancement via personalized closed-loop systems. You’ll also learn how other consumer-facing technology tools that integrate virtual reality, motion capture, and wearable devices can enhance our brain’s functioning with the ultimate aim of improving quality of life.

The Viscious Spiral: How Will the Opioid Crisis End?

Like earlier epidemics that swept the United States, the ongoing opioid emergency is claiming victims at an alarming rate. Roughly a quarter of people who receive a prescription for opioid pain relievers will abuse them. Drug overdoses -- largely the result of these painkillers and heroin -- are now our top cause of accidental death. Curbing these numbers will likely require a network of intertwining solutions.

In this power panel, leading experts will discuss the spiral to addiction, how technology can aid in stopping it at the source, as well as what innovations might provide the treatment needed to end to this tragic crisis.

How a Mountaineer Gets Perfect Pitch Atop the World’s Highest Peaks

Having summited Mount Rainier over 185 times and lead trips to the highest peaks from Mexico to Nepal, mountain guide and filmmaker Win Whittaker struggled for years with escalating hearing loss. With his obvious need for hearing aids, Win’s ongoing frustration grew as his visits to the audiologist became all too frequent.

With nearly 48 million Americans dealing with hearing loss, Win’s story is common. The pain point of needing to have an audiologist fine-tune hearing aids for every unique environment causes many to (no pun intended) tune out.

Digital health has changed all of this. What has resulted is a life-changing and deeply personal transformation for Win and for anyone dealing with this chronic condition. Join Win as he shares his story.

How Digital Health Put the Family Back Together Again

Over his long life, Chuck witnessed sweeping changes in technology, from radio to the internet. And at the age of 94, Chuck had a front-row seat to even more groundbreaking modernization. When he fell seriously ill, he didn’t go to the hospital. The hospital came to him.

Chuck became the first patient of Medically Home, which deploys remote monitors and systems that turn patients’ homes into “micro-hospital units.” Users recuperate from illness in familiar surroundings, surrounded by family, while remaining under round-the-clock care of doctors and other healthcare providers. When medicine is delivered in the family home, like Chuck experienced, digital tech gains a personal touch.

State-of-the-Art Hospitals Deliver a Seismic Shift in Patient Monitoring

Being woken multiple times for a vitals check is a required annoyance for hospital patients as well as extremely time-consuming for nursing staff. However, with remarkable technology advancements, hospitals now have the tools to continuously track patient vitals and be alerted ONLY if a patient’s situation warrants attention.

Hear from one of today’s most progressive innovators on how new wearable, disposable and clinical-grade solutions are powering trailblazing hospitals with an end-to-end patient monitoring platform for their patients both in the hospital and post-discharge.

How are these hospitals integrating these new systems into their existing framework, and what does it mean for improving patient-care and their bottom line?

Biometrics Boost Their Numbers by Losing the Friction

Wearable sensors measure bodily processes that you often don’t notice: Think heart rate, sweat, and breaths. As wearable designers make their devices nearly unnoticeable, too, the friction of wearing these sensors is disappearing.

The low-visibility wearables you’ll see in this session, like biometric skin patches and temporary tattoos, are gaining more function. Their form factor is becoming ever more inviting. With less friction, consumers are becoming more engaged – and the biometric data is pouring in quickly!

The Government’s Role in Deploying Digital Health

Fact: Government plays a very important role in advancing the adoption of digital health. But like any new industry, policymakers need to get educated and up-to-speed from those working on the frontlines. And still, the process is a long and arduous one.

From the HHS, Congress, NHS, FDA and others, it’s critical the digital health industry gain the support and official backing to deploy health tech programs on a grand scale giving way to a fully integrated ecosystem.

Join the CEO of Humetrix, a digital health pioneer blazing the trail to give patients access to their health records, for a talk on where the state-of-affairs lies with pushing important legislation through.

Philips and American Well Redefine the Hospital of the Future

The hospitals of the not-so-distant future won’t just be buildings where you go when you’re sick or injured. Rather, a network of healthcare providers will monitor you when you’re healthy and deploy services to your home when you’re not. Your doctor might be an expert physician thousands of miles away who uses vast troves of data from devices you wear to guide your treatment.

In short, the hospital and clinic won’t be at the center of your healthcare. You will be. And this shift is already underway.

The Shift to Consumer Grade Devices in Clinical Settings

The “stethoscope era” of medicine is over. As healthcare providers grapple with the skyrocketing burden of chronic diseases fueled by behavioral choices, they need information. Not just a few numbers during occasional office visits -- doctors now need to monitor patients’ real-time blood pressure, glucose, heart rate, physical activity, and sleep. So bring on the wearables! These noninvasive, relatively inexpensive devices remotely guide doctors toward value-based care decisions, alert them to emergencies, and support conversations with patients about medication adherence and lifestyle choices.

KEYNOTE: Pivots, Hockey Sticks and Unicorns: Looking Into the Crystal Ball

We’ve saved the best for last!

Wain Fishburn, the Global Head of the Digital Health Practice at Cooley, a worldwide leader in transformative deals, complex IP and regulatory matters and high-stakes litigation is delivering one of the most important talks of our two-day summit.

With unprecedented amounts of funding pouring into digital health, we are witnessing everything from IPOs, consolidations, acquisitions, company pivots, swift growth and unfortunately, company closures. What does the future hold, and how should entrepreneurs, tech innovators, investors, healthcare providers and others be looking at how to thrive in this fledgling industry? And which strategies should companies consider when playing on the front edge of the new economy?
