The Wellness System of Tomorrow

Dr. Robin Felder speaking at the Charlottesville Senior Center Monday.

Dr. Robin A. Felder, UVa Professor of Pathology and Assoc. Director of Clinical Chemistry, talked about an important transition about to occur through the use of mobile technologies, sensors, and computers. With this new technology, we can transform the medical system of today into the wellness system of tomorrow. The “hospital at home” model will convert the average bathroom into a wellness diagnostic center and the bed into a sleep monitor.

Dr. Felder spoke on Monday March 12, 2012 as a part of the Charlottesville Senior Center’s All Things Digital series. Following the presentation, questions were taken from the audience.
