Who Pays for Technology Advancements in Healthcare
Medical Economics
October 13, 2022
The question of who should pay for technology advancements like artificial intelligence in the health care industry is a tricky one. When thinking about AI-enabled software, it all depends on what the software does and the benefits of using the software. There are many use cases for AI-enabled software outside of directly treating patients, including inventory management, nurse scheduling, and drug discovery — and that’s just to name a few applications. It is clear who pays for those types of software programs: pharmaceutical companies might pay for drug discovery and hospital, or clinic operations might pay for inventory management and nurse scheduling. It’s when dealing with FDA cleared and/or HIPAA compliant software that is used directly in patient care that makes “Who Should Pay” a tricky question.

Four Startups That Use Sensors for Remote Patient Monitoring
MV
October 12, 2022
The remote patient monitoring industry has grown dramatically over the past 4 years. There are many different wearables and sensors that have gone mainstream and have also been integrated into healthcare, including the Apple Watch, Fitbit, AliveCor, Omron Blood Pressure Watch, the Oxitone Sp02 Watch, and many more devices.

Medicare has been reimbursing for Remote Physiological Monitoring for years, and in 2022 added new CPT codes around RTM, Remote Therapeutic Monitoring, specifically in respiratory and musculoskeletal (MSK). Because Medicare does cover these applications and services around remote patient monitoring, over the next 5 years remote patient monitoring will continue to grow.

How AI Can Democratize Healthcare
MV
September 13, 2022
AI is revolutionizing the Where, When, What and How people access healthcare. Trained healthcare professionals and physical clinics are a limited and expensive resource. With location removed from the equation, shifting care to the point of the patient increases access and lowers the cost of delivery. The negligible incremental cost to provide an AI based software program per person makes AI infinitely scalable and accessible.

The patient experience is changing, expectations are evolving, and the major healthcare stakeholders are recognizing healthcare can be delivered in new ways that improve patient outcomes. AI advancements across Vocal Biomarkers, Remote Patient Monitoring, Digital Therapeutics, Voice Recognition, Decision Support Tools, Virtual Reality, and Predictive Care are coalescing together to create Ambient Healthcare Computing: the ever-present healthcare assistant that monitors, analyzes, and provides the right interventions to the right person at the right time. This future of ambient computing promises a reimagined healthcare paradigm from sick-care to continuous-care.

The Thought Leader Formula: Strategically Leverage Your Expertise to Drive Business & Career Goals
Indigo River Publishing
March 05, 2019
People don’t pay for content; they pay for packaging. But how do you package yourself, in a way that is accessible, relatable, and can be heard above the noise?

You want to expand your career and take your business to the next level. You’re not sure exactly where to start, but you want to be known. You might have brilliant ideas, but you weren’t born knowing how to sell them. No one is; it takes study, practice, and years of grind.

The truth is, there’s no difference between branding a company and branding a person. It takes a shift in mindset: you are the company.

Robin Farmanfarmaian takes you from zero to blastoff. Take a deep dive through the how of thought leadership; learn the foundations that will create an impact; see how Robin transformed herself into a brand; and establish your why--your fundamental truth--to build your launching pad for success.

The Patient as CEO: How Technology Empowers the Healthcare Consumer
Lionscrest
December 05, 2015
From wearable sensors, to improved point-of-care diagnostics to artificial intelligence and robotics, there are a great and growing number of breakthroughs in biomedical technology which are set to fundamentally change the way that patients interact with their healthcare providers.

Author Robin Farmanfarmaian has seen this change first-hand. Misdiagnosed at age 16, she endured multiple surgeries and countless hospitalizations over the course of a decade before deciding to take charge of her own healthcare and changing her life overnight. Since then, Robin has become an entrepreneur, and has worked on more than 10 early stage startups, including three as one of the Founders: The Organ Preservation Alliance, Exponential Medicine at Singularity University, and Morfit.

In The Patient as CEO, she shines a light on the new and upcoming breakthroughs that will allow you, the patient, to be the key decision-maker - the CEO - of your own healthcare.
