Peter Coffee and Salesforce's Vision for the Platformization of Healthcare

5/17/2019
More
Harry talks this week with Salesforce's vice president of strategic research, Peter Coffee. The computer-industry veteran and former tech columist says that in the era of 1) outcomes-based payments for medical care, 2) an aging patient base, and 3) ubiquitous sensors and continuous data collection, there's a huge opportunity—and financial incentive—for healthcare providers to employ technology platforms that improve the client experience. Might Salesforce end up marketing such a platform?...

Rhoda Au on Digital Biomarkers and Precision Brain Health

4/26/2019
More
As one of the researchers involved in the 70-year-long Framingham Heart Study, Rhoda Au is in a unique position to investigate whether changes in speech patterns in middle-aged people could prefigure the onset of Alzheimer’s disease later in life, and whether early detection might give patients more time to take preventative measures. She’s been part of the Framingham study since 1990, and she’s applying voice analysis software to 9,000 digital audio recordings of neuropsychological exams of...

Alán Aspuru-Guzik and the Revolution in Molecular Design

3/29/2019
More
Many of the processes carried out in traditional chemistry labs searching for new drugs or drug targets can be sped up through factory-style automation—and in fact, “combinatorial chemistry” was a big boost for the field. But Alán Aspuru-Guzik, a theoretical chemist in the departments of chemistry and computer science at the University of Toronto, says “the transition to autonomy is what we really want.” Think of a “self-driving chemical lab” that uses big data, AI, and robotics to explore...

Mark Boguski on Antidotes to Overspecialization in Medicine

3/1/2019
More
Adjusting to a more collaborative style may take doctors some time, says Dr. Mark Boguski, but if they stop confining themselves to disciplinary boundaries, they'll be able to see connections between different areas of medicine that aren't taught in medical schools. Boguski draws on examples from oncology, where he says doctors are gradually being retrained to think in terms of disease pathways instead of discreet organ systems. Dr. Boguski is the chief medical officer of Liberty...
