The modern era of human evolution has seen rapid improvements in quality of life with industries demonstrating innovations to improve consumer experiences, increase efficiency, and lower costs, often shepherded by technology. While health has improved over the last century, healthcare has hit a wall. Rapidly rising costs have not been matched with commensurate improvements in health outcomes. In fact, life expectancy has actually declined in the US in the last 3 years. Dr. David Feinberg, who is heading up Google's health efforts, and Dr. Clay Johnston, founding dean of the highly innovative Dell Medical School at UT Austin, will discuss opportunities for the next several decades, when healthcare will finally embrace technology and catch up with society’s interests in health.
