This talk was given at a local TEDx event, produced independently of the TED Conferences.
Huge advances in IT technology mean your iPhone is now far better designed than any of the crucial tools you doctor uses to diagnose you and interact with your history. Trained surgeon, mathematician and developer, Martin Wehlou tells us what we need to do to improve the unbelievably poor tools available for doctors to interact with your medical history.
Martin is a doctor, surgeon, mathematician and a passionate developer. He's driven by a deep frustration over the lack of effective IT tools to bring medical care into the 21st century. He wants to revolutionise the way doctors interact with patients’ histories – an area surprisingly neglected in the medical field for decades. His new book 'Rethinking The Electronic Healthcare Record' was just published in September, 2014.
About TEDx, x = independently organized event In the spirit of ideas worth spreading, TEDx is a program of local, self-organized events that bring people together to share a TED-like experience. At a TEDx event, TEDTalks video and live speakers combine to spark deep discussion and connection in a small group. These local, self-organized events are branded TEDx, where x = independently organized TED event. The TED Conference provides general guidance for the TEDx program, but individual TEDx events are self-organized.* (*Subject to certain rules and regulations)
