SXSW is a conference and festival (March 8-17, 2013) that offers the unique convergence of original music, independent films, and emerging technologies. Health 2.0 would like to host a panel on sensors with speakers Indu Subaiya (Health 2.0), Eric Dishman (Intel), David Van Sickle (Reciprocal Labs), and DJ Patil (Greylock). Doctors and nurses have long used sensors (of one sort or another) to diagnose and manage illness. In a few short years sensors have become increasingly important in health care as the devices have become more sophisticated and less costly. The advent of real-time data capture and analysis applications is making these new sensors increasingly useful in a range of diseases like diabetes, asthma, and heart failure.
