Juhan Sonin, an Arlington, Massachusetts design executive known for envisioning future systems and services in healthcare, will be speaking on the main stage at the Patient Engagement and Experience Summit in Boston, Massachusetts. Titled, “Design the Next Generation of Health Care,” Mr. Sonin’s presentation will envision how technologies such as artificial intelligence (AI) and the Internet of Things (IoT) will impact health.
“We are embarking upon a period where the world of science fiction is starting to become science fact,” said Mr. Sonin. “However, the impacts of this will not look like the breathy media headlines of immortality or killer robots. Where these changes will really matter is the ways in which this amalgam of digital technologies helps transform the world into one where our needs and interactions are custom and made exactly and just for us. Nowhere will this be more true than in health care.”
Mr. Sonin is a principal at GoInvo, a health care innovation and design firm that works with companies like Johnson and Johnson, 3M, and Walgreens. He is also an instructor at the Massachusetts Institute of Technology (MIT). He goes by the sobriquet “creative sandpaper,” a reference to his provocative style and challenging perspective on the future.
“The Patient Engagement and Experience Summit strives to bring the nation’s best thinkers together, to help set standards and expectations for health care in general and patients in particular,” says Madelynn Simmons, Team Leader – Health Care Division, at World Congress. "Juhan Sonin is just the type of person we try to expose to our community: a brave thinker with a fresh perspective on the world.”
The agenda for Mr. Sonin’s talk is far-ranging. Some of his topics are new takes on familiar themes, such as the personal health record and the role smart phones can take in the patient experience. Additionally, Mr. Sonin will be sharing his internationally-recognized “bathroom to healthroom” concept that shows how the bathroom of the future will function as a full-service health monitoring and diagnostic system.
Mr. Sonin’s talk is on the second day of the two-day conference, Tuesday September 19, 2017, at 9 AM on the main stage. In addition to the primary conference there are pre-summit workshops on Sunday September 17. Tickets are still available by calling 1-800-767-9499.
