Doctors as Technologists? Dave Evans Discusses the Future of Healthcare at HIMSS

March 4, 2013

“Is being a doctor enough or will the future doctor must also be a technologist?” Dave Evans, Chief Futurist, Cisco, kicked off Cisco’s Community for Connected Health Summit today at HIMSS 2013. With voice technology, augmented reality, gesture recognition and digital signage being implemented in the healthcare industry at a rapid rate, doctors are being pushed to their limit to understand and utilize these technologies to better communicate with providers, hospital staff and patients alike.

Evans stated that the exponential growth of the Internet is leading to more than 50 billion connected things that can communicate amongst one another, and it’s not a matter of ‘if’ the healthcare industry must adapt, but rather ‘when’ it’s possible to do so. There is an information explosion taking place and it’s not going to end anytime soon. By the end of 2013, we will create more information every 10 minutes than we did in all of human history, as of 2008. The zettaflood will place huge demands on the network.  Demand optimized architectures for security, quality of service, and efficiency will be especially important for the healthcare industry.
