From pacemakers that help control abnormal heart rhythms to apps that monitor everything from oxygen to sugar levels, technology’s role in patients’ lives and health care generally is continuing to expand. In this episode, we look at how innovations in telehealth, wearable tech, and artificial intelligence are changing patients’ experiences and healthcare in general.
Host Sara Ivry is joined by Glenda Rouland, a patient who feels empowered by technology after being diagnosed with Idiopathic Pulmonary Fibrosis (IPF), a chronic lung disease with no known cure. Jessilyn Dunn, a medical researcher and post-doctoral fellow at Stanford University School of Medicine, also joins the conversation. Jessilyn’s research focuses on biosensors, electronic medical records, and wearable devices.
