Re: Simplify the user experience
I agree self service via a mobile app with questions and answers or a kiosk would be great! So much time is spent on paper and it's a security risk!

Re: Simplify the user experience
Fitness tracking sounds like a cool concept, but it's simply not there yet. I have confidence it will improve over time with better apps, but it's going to take a robust third party developer community for that to happen.

Ugh! Yah, I think part of the patient experience that could use vast improvement is getting rid of some of the forms... At least offer patients the option to complete forms at their leisure at home online? Or perhaps the whole point of lengthy forms it to distract patients from the fact that they are waiting so long?

Simplify the user experience
I love the idea of focusing on the patient experience. When someone is ill they are most vulnerable and so many times they feel out of control. Technology can create a patient experience that is not as scary or cumbersome. I used a hand scanner that scanned my veins for identification at my last doctor visit it was very interesting and didn't require other verification beyond birthdate. It helped to simplify my visit but I still needed to answer lots of questions and do lots of paperwork.

Re: Liat Ben-Zur Cares Deeply About THE PATIENT
Hopefully, with all the tracker data out there being collected, there will be faster, easier and better ways to conduct controlled randomized tests in natural experiments that help improve patient care incrementally by varying small changes over many many patients.

Re: connected healthcare
@Jeremy, I think the thing that stuck me most was the expidition of standard results.  For instance, instead of having to wait an hour for someone to run the X-Ray results to your doctor they can access the same pictures at you bedside using a tablet.

Re: connected healthcare
@afwriter what aspects of healthcare would you say the iPad impacted most?

I saw Liat speak at this event - it seems what drives her most is her personal experiences with healthcare and those of her family. She's playing an instrumental role in the development of IoT for healthcare and we need more like her!

Re: connected healthcare
@afwriter - good for you!  That really has to be the focus of healthcare and engaging patients - and developing patient-centered care is the key.

Absolutely, technology can advance the patient's interest and build better access and a better healthcare system.
