Medicine is in the midst of a shift never before seen. Health care is about to go through
its biggest shakeup in history. Technology and the reality of
a connected global community are conspiring to redefine
both health and disease. I’m Professor Kirstin
Ostherr from Rice University. DR. BRYAN VARTABEDIAN: And
I’m Dr. Bryan Vartabedian from Baylor College of Medicine. We’re excited to offer Medicine
in the Digital Age, a course that will give you the tools
to both understand and leverage the forces that are
reshaping our health care landscape. Consider that medicine
is becoming personal. Self-tracking devices
are empowering patients to take charge of their own health. Networked. Each one of these personal
sensors and health-tracking device will be connected to
the internet of things. Social. Global networks that allow
patients to connect and share are changing the experience
of living with disease. Informed. Information knowledge that was
once controlled by physicians is accessible by patients. Mobile. Mobile platforms are beginning to
allow secure real-time communication between patients and providers. By the end of this
course, you’ll be fluent in the language of digital innovation. You’ll be able to distinguish
the hype from the reality. The future of health care is connected,
patient-centered, mobile, and social. PROFESSOR KRISTIN OSTHERR: We
hope you’ll join us this spring on edX for Medicine in the Digital Age. [MUSIC PLAYING] [BEEPING] [MUSIC PLAYING] [MUSIC PLAYING]

I am very glad that you are planning this course! I am very interested in finding more about triggering immunity to be able to track and kill things like prostate cancer cells that are free-ranging through the body. This kind of advance needs to become public knowledge – so patients don't have to rely on tactically less appealing treatments like hormone therapy that only works by suppressing androgen and testosterone – forcing the cancer cells to grow at a slower rate. The advances – like the use of polio virus to destroy cancer cells, which has been praised as the biggest advance in a generation – needs to become public domain. I am looking forward to seeing what may be on the immediate horizon.
