Digital health and healthcare IT have exploded over the past several years, attracting passionate entrepreneurs and a remarkable range of investors. Many see in these emerging technologies healthcare’s missing link, and hope for an innovative technology-enabled solution to our system’s ills. Society’s goal is to use technology to drive engagement, enhance health-promoting activities and relationships, and achieve improved outcomes while reducing costs. Silicon Valley-based authors Suennen and Shaywitz have sought to examine these ambitions, and capture the impact of the technology through our healthcare system in Tech Tonics: Can Passionate Entrepreneurs Heal Healthcare with Technology? This newly-released book is a distillation of their writing and thinking about digital health and where these fields may be headed, including a ground-level view of the technology landscape, its structural challenges, players, progress and pitfalls. Suennen and Shaywitz bring experience, honesty and humor to their writing and bring a unique set of perspectives to entrepreneurs, investors and healthcare executives. Suennen and Shaywitz will read brief passages from Tech Tonics, followed by an on-stage interview by Rick Valencia, senior vice president and general manager of Qualcomm Life, who brings his own extensive experience in the digital health space to the conversation.
