Emerging Technologies in Healthcare: Different Points of View



Emerging Technologies in Healthcare: Different Points of View: http://www.slideshare.net/umhealthscienceslibraries/e-tech-povs

For a staff presentation, reviewing two recent events on the topic of emerging technologies. More detailed information available in these Storify links:

1) Emerging Medicine, Friend or Foe http://storify.com/pfanderson/emerging-technology-in-medicine-friend-or-foe

2) #MedLibs Look at the Horizon Report http://storify.com/pfanderson/medlibs-look-at-the-horizon-report

I loved the talk by Dr. Alex Djuricich for the way in which he both engaged the audience and made a range of new and not so new technologies accessible and relevant for health care providers and students. Of particular interest to me was that Indiana University has been having their folk livetweet Grand Rounds for two years, creating data and analytics for engagement, topics, and more.

The medical librarians conversation really made me proud. They didn’t just sit back and listen to the gurus about tech, but asked hard questions, considered strategies and policies, taking nothing for granted. I was surprised to find how much engagement there was on topics that inspired them, many of which were not included in the actual Horizon Report which we were officially discussing.
