CHW01  Transforming Health Care for the Next Generation

Nathalie Le Prohon Speaker
Vice President, Healthcare Industry
IBM Canada
Montreal, QC

Did you know each of us can expect to create the equivalent of 300 million books of health data over our lifetimes? This plethora of data provides valuable insights to improve our actual health, enhance how we engage with clinicians and reduce the cost of the delivery of health care. Today’s advancements in AI and cognitive computing are unlocking the value of this data and transforming how research and actual care is delivered today and for the next generation. This session will discuss trends in technology affecting health care, explain how cognitive computing can transform this sector, walk through examples of how AI and cognitive computing are used today, and propose ideas for accelerating this transformation for the next generation.
