Description

TEDxABQSalon | The Future of Medicine will be an evening dedicated to exploring New Mexico’s most fascinating ideas that support the theme of “What if…”

What if New Mexico was the best place to practice medicine? We will take a look at how this would look and feel as our speakers take a deep dive into topics such as research and prevention, medicine ecosystems for providers, and technology in healthcare. These extraordinary voices will unlock imaginations as new ideas are presented to challenge the way we think of medicine and to embrace its exciting future in New Mexico.

Dr. Ivan Pupulidy believes we need to reframe how we think about human error in medicine. By examining the system and conditions that set the context for human actions, we can better understand errors and place learning ahead of blame.

Preventable human error is cited as the third leading cause of death in medicine. But error is a common thing in human actions. Dr. Ivan Pupulidy is exploring another way to look at error. He will introduce a concept called the learning review, which asks us to consider the system and the conditions that surround human actions. This path allows us to use error as the starting point for an investigation and places learning ahead of blame.
$R9RDM0S Dr. Ries Robinson believes wearable technology is currently positioned to positively impact chronic disease management, thus causing a significant industry disruption.
With over 20 years of experience in developing medical technologies, Dr. Ries Robinson believes that wearable technology is positioned to positively impact chronic disease management, causing a significant industry disruption. Chronic disease management sits at the bullseye of healthcare innovation due to disproportionate costs, changes in healthcare payments, physician shortages, and an aging population.  Advancements in wireless technology and sensor developments have set the stage for innovative and inexpensive products to wedge into a staid system that has been averse to change. These systems accomplish healthcare’s triple aim of better patient experience, improved outcomes, and decreased expense.

Dr. Harvey J. White’s focus on improving both individuals’ lives and our healthcare delivery system has led to a focus on our lifestyles – how we think, eat and move – and how they are structured in our habits.

Although our society finds the advancement of medical technology intriguing, how we live may have far more effect on personal health. The health of our community is in crisis. Underpinning this observation is a culture of sub-optimal lifestyle habits. Our lifestyles–how we think, eat, and move–are structured in habit, and constructive habits can create long term health. Altering our habits needn’t be overwhelming and can be achieved through some simple principles. Habits drive health – and habits can be changed!

 

$R9RDM0S Dr. Deborah Helitzer wants to repurpose some of the billions spent in the US on health to address the “social determinants” that have the most impact on our health so we can help people get healthy and stay healthy.
In 2015, the US spent over $3.2 trillion for health care, more than 18% of the GDP.  Yet we have the lowest life expectancy among all of the industrialized countries. Dr. Deborah Helitzer, the founding dean of the UNM College of Population Health, believes that we need to repurpose some of the money in health care to address the factors that have the most impact on our health, called “social determinants”, such as access to healthy food, transportation, and housing, and poor health behaviors like smoking and lack of exercise, social services, and safety. Dr. Helitzer believes that by working together, we can help people get–and stay–healthy.
