Why study Leading Health Tech Innovation?

Discover the path to successful digital health innovation.

 

Healthcare data can revolutionize how we think of every part of the healthcare ecosystem. Once the domain of niche consumer products like Jawbone and Fitbit, digital health is now disrupting the healthcare industry by creating new value using wearables and patient engagement data.

 

Investments in corporate innovation and start-ups are outpacing previous years as investors and healthcare companies expect innovation to come from areas such as data interoperability, mental health and personalized care. According to Global Market Insights Inc., the worldwide digital health market is projected to hit $504.4B by 2025.

In light of this opportunity, the Leading Health Tech Innovation course was developed to provide a comprehensive guide to structuring a successful health tech product, service, or venture.

 

This course is not just for entrepreneurs or those who join start-ups in the Health Tech space. It is also for those inventing new products and services within medium and large Healthcare companies looking to embrace the transformative power of AI-wearables and machine learning. The concepts of successful entrepreneurship accelerate impact, learning, improvement, and validation for corporate innovation groups, internal venture teams, and R&D researchers.

"AI and new technologies such as wearables and mobile devices are revolutionizing health care. This course will help you learn how to create a product, service, or business that can bring better health into people's lives, helping shape the future we all want to see."

Prof. Rosalind Picard, Sc.D., is an MIT professor, inventor, author, and entrepreneur. Her team’s inventions have been twice named to "top ten" lists, including the New York Times Magazine's Best Ideas of 2006 for their Social Cue Reader, used in autism, and 2011's Popular Science Top Ten Inventions for a Mirror that Monitors Vital Signs. Her book Affective Computing helped launch the field by that name, giving computers (including software agents, robots, and interactive games) the skills of emotional intelligence. She is one of the top two most-cited researchers in Digital Health and directs research at the MIT Media Lab on Affective Computing, especially focused on creating solutions to help people who are not flourishing or at risk of not flourishing. She teaches classes such as Affective Computing and Ethics, and AI for Good Mental Health. Picard’s inventions have led to AI-based advances in psychiatry and neurology, including the first smart watch (commercialized by Empatica, sold as “Embrace”) cleared by FDA for monitoring and alerting to seizures, and wearable devices used by thousands of researchers globally for collecting medical data used in clinical trials and patient-focused research. Picard has co-founded two successful businesses Affectiva and Empatica. Empatica recently created a new AI wearable, in use in studies by the US Health and Human Services, for warning of a likely viral respiratory infection She has a TEDx talk viewed by nearly two million people, and has received a variety of recognitions including one of the highest honors for an engineer, election to the National Academy.
