Top Quotes from Day One Digital Health Summit

Digital Health: The Debate

“If there is one takeaway about this meeting and digital health–it’s standing room only! And I think that’s the reality we live in. We are at a really interesting point in time… we are seeing telemedicine, trackers, cyber-security, electronic medical records actually move forward with a sense of purpose and a sense of trajectory.”
John Nosta, NostaLab @johnnosta
“The trick is to make this data actionable. Blend it with artificial intelligence, we’re going to learn new things and the consumer can triage themselves.”
Dr. Daniel Kraft, Faculty Chair, Singularity University; Founding Executive Director, Exponential Medicine @daniel_kraft
“We are seeing that adoption in the states is coming but it’s met with skepticism because it’s overwhelming and our traditional healthcare system is migrating. This show is showing we are going to be there very soon. In Asia, for example, it’s already tipping. They have such an appetite for this [digital health]. They see the future and have always been technically a little bit ahead of us.”
Tim Moore , Chief Marketing Officer, Rochester Optical @TimMoore
“This year is going to be defined by the Apple watch. Many people are going to buy the Apple watch and see if it works and see if it delivers something new… We haven’t yet seen the promise of what a sensor on your skin is really going to do for you beyond lose weight.”
Robert Scoble , Startup Liaison, Rackspace Hosting @Scobleizer


Survival of the Fittest

“In the old world, humans didn’t have built-in diagnostics, now in the new world, they do.”

Wainwright Fishburn , Director of Market Development, Medical, MC10 
@fundarav @mc10inc


Digital Health Reality Check

“Other than, did your patients take their medication prescribed the question is – did it work?”Right now, the data is very siloed. If you ask physicians who owns the records, they say they do. If you ask consumers who owns the records, they say they do.”
David Schlanger , CEO, WebMD @WebMD


HealthTech for the Greatest Generation

“20 million seniors could benefit from active aging tech, yet senior care is still a tiny part of the market.”
David Inns , GreatCall @GreatCallCEO


A Precious Collaboration: The Birth of a Luxury Wearable

We wanted to find a global brand with an iconic design… so when you saw it you’d know exactly who it was, like Swarovski. It needed to be legit… someone who really knew how to make jewelry first and then we’ll supply the tech.”
Sonny Vu , CEO & Founder, Misfit @sonnyvu

How Digital Health Saved My Life

When it comes to our health we measure everything that is important to us, but we completely ignore measuring the health of our brain.”

Brian Hixson , CEO, BrainMD
“20 million seniors could benefit from active aging tech, yet senior care is still a tiny part of the market.”A digital hearing aid saved my career.”
Dick Loizeaux , ReSound LiNX Wearer, ReSound
“Right now about 40% of individuals with Parkinson’s disease don’t see a neurologist, and one of the reasons that they can’t is because of distance and disability. We are trying to use is simple web-based video conferencing… so that they can communicate with their physician from the convenience of their home.”

Ray Dorsey, MD, MBA , Professor of Neurology/Director, CHET @UofR

Empowering our Superminds

“The ability to take five minutes of time is considered a luxury now. In 2020, it will be considered a necessity.”

Is Data Your New Doc?

“I think what we were talking about is how do we start federating and connecting that data. It’s great that we have all these apps and that we’re collecting data remotely but we are still not quite at the stage in the industry where we can actually get all the data from the clinical systems that are big enterprise systems and then figure out how to connect them into those devices and wearabl… We are trying to figure out if user-generated data can start inner-mingling with that clinical structured data.”

Missy Krasner , Managing Director, Healthcare & Life Sciences, Box @missykras
“400,000 Americans [each year] die from avoidable medical errors.”

Bettina Experton , Founder and CEO, Humetrix @BettinaExperton @Humetrix
“The challenge is really how you take the information [data] and integrate it back into the EMRs… how do you integrate it into a way doctors can use but also the system can use in a broader sense? So you are not just serving the patient-doctor relationship, but patient-doctor to hospital, to community, to providers… It’s a much more rounded ecosystem approach.”

Darren Hay , VP of Sales and Strategic Partnerships, IdealLife @IDEALLIFE1
“It’s hard to fix healthcare if you don’t have enough data coming from patients.”

Marco Peluso , CEO, Qardio @marpeluso

Jody Holtzman , Senior, Vice President, Thought Leadership, AARP @jholtzman
“For entrepreneurs, if the device is outside of the medical field, you need $500k to get to launch, if it’s in the medical field it’s $1.5M and up. Just the pure regulatory side of getting something through the market means it’s going to take a bit longer and cost more. Because you’ve then defined that the product does something useful.”

Aidan Petrie, Chief Information Officer, Ximedica @Ximedica

Biosensors Breaking Barriers

“If you can think of it, you can put a sensor in it.”

Dan Munro, Contributor, Forbes @danmunro

Deepak Prakash , Global Marketing Director, Vancive Medical Technologies @AveryDennison
“We will have to use technology to reduce face to face time with doctors and accommodate more people in our health system and lower costs.”

Stanley Yang , CEO, NeuroSky @stanleysyang

The Future Pulse of Wearables

“Battery life is being killed by optical sensors so bioimpedance will likely displace optical solutions.”
David Schie , CEO, Linear Dimensions

Beyond the Bands

“For entrepreneurs, if the device is outside of the medical field, you need $500k to get to launch, if it’s in the medical field it’s $1.5M and up. Just the pure regulatory side of getting something through the market means it’s going to take a bit longer and cost more. Because you’ve then defined that the product does something useful.”

Aidan Petrie, Chief Information Officer, Ximedica @Ximedica

Smart homes? No brilliant sensible ones!

“Home sensors can restore dignity [for seniors] by minimizing need for constant check-ins.”

Kian Saneii , CEO, Independa, Inc.@ksaneii
“With changes in the healthcare system, we are starting to become more proactive and preventative, but that shift will take a while.”

Laura Mitchell , Chief Marketing Officer, GrandCare Systems @laurahmitchell

Dr. Pravene Nath, Chief Information Officer, Stanford Health Care

Randy Parker, President and CEO (Founder), MDLIVE, Inc

Alex Backer , CEO, QLess
@abacker
