Our session, about digital health trends, will happen Sunday afternoon, with Kaiser Permanente digital health technologies Vice President Madhu Nutakki and dermatologist Jeffrey Benabio, MD, presenting. They will lead a discussion about how technology and meaningfully curated data are enabling health and wellness. They will also discuss the latest digital trends, including biometrics, mobile, wearable devices, APIs, and the platforms that bring them all together — with examples of what’s working now and what’s around the corner in health care.
