In this episode, Daniel Kraft, founder of Exponential Medicine and Digital.Health, and chair of the XPRIZE Pandemic & Health Alliance talks about the internet of medical things and the future of medicine.
 
Daniel reminisces on a TedTalk about medicine’s future and ten years later, he finds that we are in a new age of digitally connected and mobile health. For him, COVID brought transformation in an accelerated way in diagnostics, therapeutics, crowdsourcing trials, and beyond. Daniel believes the future of medicine consists in bringing multiple technologies together. He talks about developing technologies like digital twins, quantum computing, 3D printing, augmented reality, virtual reality, and artificial intelligence. He points out how smartphones today have become a powerful digital tool for individuals’ health as well. He thinks of digital health as the ability to take all new data, integrate it, make sense of it, and personalize it to the individual, clinician, or healthcare system needed.
 
Daniel argues one of the challenges for medicine is keeping up with the innovation, which is why he’s built Digital.Health as a platform to address that problem. He thinks navigating the vast amount of applications and the data created from them and smart devices are getting more complicated. He talks about how the focus should be on producing insights and integrating them into the workflow. This information can provide an improvement in interaction with patients and accessibility. Daniel speaks about digital determinants of health as a new factor to take into account to optimize prevention, diagnostics, and therapeutics. He believes all these digital tools will upscale the healthcare space to a new golden age and democratize access.
