Nursing is a difficult job with long hours and often limited resources. The complexities of the career will increase with an ever aging population whose longevity is expanding.
The good news is healthcare, in general, is reaching new heights with the transformative trends in Big Data, Artificial Intelligence, the Internet of Things, genomic sequencing, mobile records, and precision testing for diseases like Alzheimer’s, Parkinson’s and MS.
By 2020 it’s going to be more expensive for you to flush your toilet than to have your gene sequenced. That’s how rapidly technology is moving in healthcare.
Jack Uldrich, acclaimed futurist and author, will deliver two keynotes to California Nurse Leaders at their annual conference in Anaheim in early February.
In his keynotes “Question the Future” and “The Big AHA,” Uldrich will focus on the trends transforming tomorrow and help nurse leaders gain the crucial foresight to create a prosperous future.
In his 2016 keynote to the NRECA Uldrich said, “A decade ago, gene sequencing cost one hundred and fifty million dollars, not very affordable. But gene sequencing technology is getting cheaper every quarter (every four months) since then. With that math in place, by 2020 it’s going to be more expensive for you to flush your toilet than to have your gene sequenced. That’s how rapidly technology is moving.”
As a specialist in healthcare trends, Uldrich has addressed dozens of healthcare associations and hospitals. His clients include the American Medical Association, the American Academy of Audiology, Michigan Health and Hospital Association , Vynamic, the American Academy of Neurologists, Fresenius Medical, Bausch, and Lomb, Boston Scientific, Alcatel-Lucent/Verizon Forum on Wireless Healthcare, United Healthcare, IASIS Healthcare, Allina Hospitals, The Healthcare Trustees of New York, St. Jude Medical, among others.
