    The buzz: To life! With over two billion people expected to be 60 and older by 2050, chronic illness and diminished wellbeing are fast becoming major global public health challenges. The solution to aging gracefully, managing chronic diseases, and minimizing impacts? Not cure, but treatment. But if we turn to smart technologies and data—a “Connected Care” continuum—to support aging populations, will one Robo-Doc replace multiple human MDs? And is Connected Care just for the wealthy—no iPad or Smartphone, no health? The experts speak. Avner Halperin, EarlySense: “Technology is neither good nor bad, nor is it neutral … It is our thoughtful and ethical implementation that can help improve and save lives” (Melvin Kranzberg). Dr. Oliver Haferbeck, Roche Diagnostics Germany: “A DJ is always listening for what's next" (Grandmaster Flash). Dr. David Delaney, SAP: “You can lead a horse to water but you can’t make it drink” (Aphorism). Join us for MD in the Palm of Your Hand: Connected Care.
