Grand Rounds – Future Care: Sensors, Artificial Intelligence, and the Reinvention of Medicine | Jag Singh, MD DPhil | July 19, 2023 | June 15, 2023
About Dr. Singh’s new book, “Future Care: Sensors, Artificial Intelligence, and the Reinvention of Medicine”:
“The book had been bubbling in my system for several years. I think I thought of writing it about 7 or 8 years ago. I started writing it about a year prior to COVID-19 and then it was catalyzed by the whole COVID-19 situation to lead to where it is now.
The reason for writing it was largely because we’re going through this digital transformation right now. At this point in time, I think healthcare is really unsustainable the way it is. There are so many issues plaguing it on a daily basis — not just in the United States but all over the world.
I feel that advancing the theory of digital transformation, advancing the use of sensors with virtual care that is powered by predictive analytics with sustainable workflows, could really transform care as a whole. It ended up being a confluence of some of my research work in the past and then, eventually, obviously, my clinical work. Add to that my little experience as a patient, and it all kind of brought together the book, which I think really deals with how healthcare can be transformed.
