Hacking for Healing: MedTech and Chronic Disease

Sunday, March 13
12:30PM - 1:30PM

JW Marriott
Room 201-202
110 E 2nd St


Chronic disease is at epidemic levels, affecting half of US adults. An increasing number track their lives to understand symptoms and guide treatments. But because tracking does not provide personalized insights, research shows many people abandon their health apps and wearables in a matter of months. Four experts will discuss their platforms, research, and deep experience to give chronic disease patients new ways to think about managing their health -- shifting from precision medicine to precision prevention. Results from a pre-SXSW survey of "quantified self" tracking among healthy and chronic disease participants will kickoff an interactive conversation among participants and panelists.
