    Where Does Technology Go Wrong?

    Where Does Technology Go Wrong?

    We've talked a lot about technological advancements in the medical field, but today, we're going to be examining them from a new lens to understand the possible downsides and how to fix it. Joining us to provide a fresh perspective is Dean Sittig, a professor at the UTHealth School of Biomedical Informatics. Tune in to hear about a wide range of topics including how the electronic health record system inadvertently disrupted work-life balance by increasing clinicians' workload, finding an efficient and safe balance between trusting AI to make decisions and having to double-check everything on our own, the economical consequences of replacing jobs in healthcare, and how technologies like ChatGPT can be turned for nefarious purposes when in the wrong hands.

Today, we are joined by Matthew Fisher to talk about his career in health law as well as topics in this field including how legal restrictions can actually help healthcare companies, what HIPAA truly is, and the complex interactions between policymaking and the rise of artificial intelligence.

    The Duality of Health for People and the Planet

    We often have serious conversations about the future of global warming as well as global health crises, but it is not as often that these two topics are connected in discussion. In fact, taking care of our planet is crucial for the wellbeing of billions; environmental factors like availability of clean water, consequences of industrial agriculture, and geopolitical conflicts that affect access to important resources all have a dramatic impact on health outcomes, especially in underprivileged areas. Today, we had a fascinating discussion with Gil Bashe on the importance of upcoming technologies in solving these problems, and we'd love for you to tune in and hear about younger generations' power to take control of the future of our health and the planet's health.Health UnaBASHEd Radio Show: www.healthcarenowradio.com/programs/health-unabashed/​Medika Life: medika.life/tag/gil-bashe/
