High Tech – High Touch: how sensors and data science can dramatically change healthcare

In the Surgery and Engineering for Surgical Education (SEnSE) lab, medical simulation and innovative sensor technologies are used to objectively assess clinical, hands-on performance. The long-term goal of the SEnSE lab is to build valid and reliable technologies that can be used to ensure that minimum performance standards are met by all healthcare professionals who perform hands-on clinical examinations and procedures.

This talk will share some intriguing sensor and motion tracking data that highlight a broad range of physician performance during medical and surgical procedures. What’s exciting about this data is that it will allow for a new era of performance tracking for these elite professionals. The big question is: Is the medical profession ready?

All qBio sponsored talks take place on Wednesdays at 2:00 p.m. in the 3rd floor Orchard View room of the Discovery Building unless otherwise noted. Talks are open to the public. Access to the room is via the elevator behind Aldo’s Cafe in the Northeast corner of the building.
