Remember doctor’s visits when you were growing up? The wooden tongue depressor. The well-worn stethoscope. That weird thing they jammed in your ears. And now, my young children are getting about that same treatment. But that is going to change.

As design harnesses digital, materials, and networking technologies, a very new health experience is just over the horizon. Proactive, lifestyle design, tracking real-time health data, non-invasive tools and custom “just for you” treatments based on your actual genome, are here. These are all real technologies, being used by ordinary people. Together they are leading us to “stage zero” detection and treatment which has the potential to double or better the lifespan of every first-world citizen. Not science fiction, the children of the 2020’s will only know this reality. Tongue depressors will be limited to school craft projects and popsicles. And it is all the product of technology and design.

This webinar will highlight to the macro factors shaping these realities, along with an in-depth exploration of the various impacts of and opportunities for design.

Presenting Faculty

Juhan Sonin, Director of GoInvo, Lecturer Design and Engineering, MIT

Juhan Sonin specializes in healthcare design and system engineering. He is the Director of GoInvo (goinvo.com). His work has been recognized by the New York Times, Newsweek, BBC International, Wired Magazine, and National Public Radio (NPR) and published in The Journal of Participatory Medicine and The Lancet. Juhan has spent time at Apple, the National Center for Supercomputing Applications (NCSA), Massachusetts Institute of Technology (MIT) and MITRE. He currently lectures on design and engineering at MIT.

Juhan’s laser focus on healthcare and open source design has infected national efforts for the United States Department of Health and Human Services (HHS) to the National Institutes of Health (NIH) to the California Healthcare Foundation (CHCF) to the Office of the National Coordinator for Health Information Technology (ONC). His open source healthcare products have also been leveraged by Walgreens, Crossover Health, and Hallmark Clinics, to name a few. Next up in 2018 is designing an open source primary care diagnosis engine as well as care team and precision medicine services.
