Today, you can join experts from IDEO, Partners Healthcare and Boston Children’s Hospital as they use the People for a Smarter Planet Facebook Page for the day for a discussion on the "quantified self" - the continuous gathering of data related to our lifestyles and habits. They will discuss the sharp rise in consumer mobile devices and applications focused on personal health care and how the new data opens up new opportunities for discovering patterns and trends about our own habits.
The chat begins at 9:00 AM EST and takes place on the page’s timeline. Charlie Schick from IBM will be joined by Rodrigo Martinez, Life Sciences Chief Strategist, IDEO, Kamal Jethwani, MD, MPH, Corporate Manager, Research and Innovation, Partners Healthcare, and Alexandra Pelletier, Telehealth Program Specialist from Boston Children’s Hospital.
On the Facebook page, you'll see a series of interesting conversation starters, status updates, blog links, related videos and photos and audience-targeted questions on the topic of the quantified self. Join in by making your own comment or asking your own question. It's a great way to engage with industry experts, consumers and technology companies about the growing trends around health care and mobility.
