Mobile and home-based technologies could help stretch limited funds and create sustainable healthcare for all. That’s the assertion of Eric Dishman, director of health innovation at Intel, in this university podcast. Estimating that there is a $500 billion opportunity for health IT in developing markets, particularly via non-governmental organizations, he argues that using technology strategically could help developing countries avoid the inefficient, high-cost, error-prone infrastructure of the United States. Dishman spoke at the USRio+2.0 Conference, hosted by the Stanford Graduate School of Business.
