Medicine's Future? There's an App for That

By Micmad @immicmad
In Daniel Kraft's TED speech he explains how technology is helping expedite diagnosis and treatment. The technology is advancing at such a rapid pace it helps Doctors in a bevy of ways. First with the speed at which technology can help to get results. Apple's iPhone and iPad's have helped to generate an explosion of application or "app" creations. With more targeted apps you can receive niche specific trends and information. In the technological world the low cost gene analysis computation Bio-Informatics and Internet Connectivity accompanied with social networking people tend to go to Google for information rather than to actually go to the Doctor. With the new application process a patient can get direct information regarding a symptom or test results without the trouble of leaving home. Diabetic patients can get test results and send them to the Doctors office without ever leaving home. If this trend continues patients may actually be able to receive a full check up without ever leaving the comforts of their own home. This is the future of Medicine and with technology merging our world together with ease. Dr. Kraft is a Stanford and Harvard trained physician scientist with over 20 years of experience in clinical practice, biomedical research an innovation. Dr. Kraft chairs the Medicine track Singularity University and is Executive Director and curator for the FutureMed, a program which explores convergent, exponentially developing technologies and their potential in biomedicine and healthcare. Dr. Kraft recently founded IntelliMedicine, focused on connected, data driven, and integrated personalized medicine. He is the inventor of the MarrowMiner, an FDA approved device for the minimally invasive harvest of bone marrow, and founded RegenMed Systems, a company developing technologies to enable adult stem cell based regenerative therapies. He has multiple scientific publications, medical device, immunology and stem cell-related patents through faculty positions with Stanford University School of Medicine and as clinical faculty for the pediatric bone marrow transplantation service at University of California San Francisco.
No matter how we look at it technology is helping us advance at a fast pace. Technology in the medical field has helped to combat and prevent certain illnesses before they start. Technology will continue to help the health care field and help make human life easier.
