This meetup group is the San Francisco Bay Area chapter of Medicine X ( http://medicinex.stanford.edu ). 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, and empower patients to be active participants in their own care. Such emerging technologies include those that are:
• largely 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, …);
• and more.
This group is intended to bring together (e)patients, healthcare providers, experience designers, technologists, and researchers. The group will offer opportunities to hear from key members of these communities, experience emerging technologies, collaborate on projects, and more.
