My passion for healthcare comes from being a patient. After two liver transplants, the first saving my life and the second giving me my life back, I learned that healthcare had lots of data—what was missing was information. My experience in defense and intel, where life and mission depend on information and situational awareness, helps drive my vision and passion for transforming the way healthcare is accessed and practiced. My team and I have the great privilege of working across Accenture to help deliver the transformation everyone is waiting for.
Enhancing health care with wearable tech
Innovations & implications
Wearable devices—smart glasses, wrist-worn displays, biometric authentication bands and other connected devices worn on the body—have many promising applications in healthcare.
When integrated with core medical systems, wearables can enable physicians, nurses and other hospital staff to become truly mobile, using their hands to work while having access to relevant, context-aware information.
Opportunities continue to expand, but regulatory, technical, security and operational obstacles must be addressed.
