Dr. Saxon

In Co.Exist's list of the World Changing Ideas of 2014, we looked at the possibility of venture capitalist Vinod Khosla's prediction (“In the next 10 years, data science and software will do more for medicine than all of the biological sciences together") coming true. 

There are few people who can speak to this better than Dr. Leslie Saxon, founder of the Center for Body Computing, chief cardiologist at USC's Keck School of Medicine, and champion of digital health technology. Under Saxon's direction, the Center for Body Computing has pushed forward the field of digital health, implementing a yearlong study of the now-FDA approved Alivecor ECG iPhone case (which offers a hospital-quality ECG on your phone) and collaborating on potentially life-changing smartphone apps for patients.

Join us as we talk to Dr. Saxon about the future of digital health technology and whether it can truly change the world of healthcare.
