The 1st Smart Health Community of Practice: Disrupting Traditional Medical Models for Improved Health Outcomes

The traditional healthcare model, which continues to operate in a disease-centric, episodic manner, is experiencing significant disruptive change. Presented with the challenges of an aging population, and one suffering increasingly complex, chronic diseases, opportunities to transform the way we deliver and receive care are continually emerging through the rapidly evolving technology landscape. Through advances in Quantified Self monitoring tools, mobile technology platforms, wearable computing, and genomic and precision medicine, we can reconsider the delivery of healthcare to allow us to tackle entrenched challenges whilst optimising patient outcomes. This talk will explore some of the opportunities available in the evolving health tech arena.

Dr. Steven Tucker, MD, FACP, FAMS Medical Director, Tucker Medical

American physician, Dr. Steven Tucker, is a medical specialist living and practicing in Singapore since 2006. He is a tireless advocate for precision health and patient empowerment.

While originally trained as a cancer specialist at the UCLA Center for Health Sciences, Dr Tucker’s medical practice focuses on the prevention and treatment of cancer as well as other common non-communicable diseases including diabetes, obesity, and heart disease.

A leader in digital health, Dr Tucker believes that by integrating information from multiple and disparate sources, such as personal genomics and social media or metabolic assessments and wearable sensors or activity trackers, patients can develop their own personalised health and wellness programs. Such programs could not only reverse disease but would be able to significantly increase health span and longevity.
