Eric Dishman: Take health care off the mainframe
16:41 · Filmed November 2009 at TEDMED 2009 · Subtitles available in 19 languages

At TEDMED, Eric Dishman makes a bold argument: The US health care system is like computing circa 1959, tethered to big, unwieldy central systems: hospitals, doctors, nursing homes. As our aging population booms, it's imperative, he says, to create personal, networked, home-based health care for all.

Social scientist
Eric Dishman does health care research for Intel — studying how new technology can solve big problems in the system for the sick, the aging and, well, all of us. Full bio
