September 27, 2017




Rishi Kumar, Vice President, Vertical Strategies at Solix Technologies, Inc. joins eHealth Radio and the Health Care and Technology Channels to discuss Number Crunching for your Health.

Listen to host Eric Dye & guest Rishi Kumar discuss the following:

  • Surrounded by IoT devices, fitbit, phone, measuring anything from steps, to heart rate, blood sugar, blood pressure, calorie intake, patients and doctors could be in possession of very valuable data. It seems the medical profession is slow in adopting big data?
  • Can patients expect to see a cohesive health report assembled with new data provided by their healthcare provider?
  • What does the data crunching look like on the health care provider side? How do you channel data to or for them?
  • What about healthcare providers that already have an IT infrastructure. How does Solix deal with existing data collection system and storage for the data play with existing systems?
  • Is data-driven healthcare going to benefit patients and healthcare providers?
