Dr. Jorge Moll is the president of the D’Or Institute of Research and Education, an organization he founded 11 years ago. He recently sat down for an interview where he talked about how technology is transforming the field of medicine in many ways. He started out by talking about how patients could soon be going in for routine appointments and having their doctor using a device to bring up all of their healthcare information by just using a simple voice command.
The pace of technological innovation in the field of medicine is growing exponentially. He said it is all but impossible to talk about progress in the healthcare industry without talking about how technology is being used to improve patient care and in other ways as well. This started in Silicon Valley and tech spread throughout the United States and then beyond. Dr. Jorge Moll said that his own organization has been rapidly incorporating new technology that has fundamentally changed how they do their research and educate their students.
He talked about how he recently had Dr. Albert Chan of Sutter Health visit his organization in Rio de Janeiro. Dr. Albert Chan, who is also a fellow of the Eisenhower Fellowship Program, talked during his visit how his company has been putting new technology into place throughout their network of clinics. This has improved both how they treat patients as well as improving the experience they have during their visit.
