Technology's role in healthcare is expanding. From pacemakers for abnormal heart rhythms to apps that monitor everything from oxygen to sugar levels, there is something to help almost everyone. In this episode, we look at how much telehealth, wearable tech, and artificial intelligence have transformed healthcare for patients and medical professionals.
Host Sara Ivry is joined by Glenda Rouland. Glenda explores how technology empowered her 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.
