About this Video
Daniel Kraft has a vision of a healthcare system that trusts the patient to be involved with their own care. Through technology that can track everything from your heart rate to your blood pressure and hormonal levels, we have the power to know more about our bodies than ever before. What will it be like to have minute-by-minute information on our bodies? How would it change our habits? How will it change our healthcare system? Watch Daniel’s talk to learn about the medical care of the future!
Daniel Kraft is a Stanford & Harvard trained physician-scientist and innovator. Daniel has served as faculty chair Medicine at Singularity University since its inception, and is founder and curator of Exponential Medicine, a program exploring the impact and potential of rapidly developing technologies to reshape health and biomedicine. After undergrad at Brown, and medical school at Stanford, Daniel completed the combined Harvard Internal Medicine and Pediatrics residency training at the MGH and Boston Children’s Hospital, and fellowships in hematology/oncology and bone marrow transplantation at Stanford. His academic research focused on stem cell and regenerative medicine and branched into medical devices and digital health. Daniel is founder of RegenMed Systems (see his TED Talk on his invention the ‘MarrowMiner’) and more recently, IntelliMedicine, and advises many healthcare companies.
