Last week, a number of TEDMED attendees and myself participated in a Google+ Hangout sponsored by Xerox to take a look back at our unique experiences at TEDMED 2013. The discussion included the following people:

  • Markus Fromherz, chief innovation officer of Xerox Healthcare
  • Benjamin Miller, assistant professor at the University of Colorado Denver School of Medicine
  • Nick Dawson, chief experience officer at Frontier Health Consulting
  • John Lynn, editor and founder of the Healthcare Scene blog network

We made it a really focused 15 minute discussion of the key takeaways from TEDMED. Some of the topics we discussed included: healthcare big data, multidisciplinary collaboration, citizen science, patient centered care, and a look at TEDMED topics 5-10 years from now. It was a really great discussion, and I encourage you to watch the TEDMED recap video embedded below.
