Wearables in Health: In Theory and in Practice

Monday, March 14
3:30PM - 4:30PM

JW Marriott
Room 201-202
110 E 2nd St

The data we can collect from wearables can be used in many ways to improve health outcomes, better the patient experience, and make clinical trials and R&D more efficient and effective. But we’re several years away from realizing the full benefits of patient-generated data.

In this dual presentation, Dr. Sam Volchenboum will speak to where we’re at and where we’re headed regarding the challenges and benefits of using wearable data to inform treatment and clinical trials.

Dr. Ray Duncan of Cedars Sinai Hospital will share the practical hurdles, insights, and success stories of integrating wearable data with EMRs at one of the most connected health systems in the country.
