What we're about
This meetup group is the Los Angeles chapter of Stanford Medicine X (http://medicinex.stanford.edu).
Stanford Medicine X programs aim to connect all stakeholders to innovate healthcare at the intersection of emerging technologies and medicine.
Medicine X is a catalyst for new ideas about the future of medicine and health care. The initiative explores how emerging technologies will advance the practice of medicine, improve health, empower patients to be active participants in their own care, and more (http://medicinex.stanford.edu/explore/).
Such emerging technologies include:
• Digital (e.g., online peer-to-peer healthcare communities, wearables, …)
• Methodological (e.g., human-centered design and innovation, service design, …)
• Cultural (e.g., participatory medicine, doctors and patients functioning as designers, …)
This group is intended to bring together the full spectrum of healthcare stakeholders including ePatients, healthcare providers, designers, technologists, researchers, caregivers, entrepreneurs and local Medicine X Conference alumni. The group will offer opportunities to hear from key members of these communities, experience emerging technologies, collaborate on projects, co-create, co-design, and more.
