Description

The Precision Medicine Initiative and Vice President Biden’s “moonshot in cancer” renew Federal focus on medical research. The convergence of healthcare and information technology—especially advances in data collection and analysis—is accelerating research in genomics, immunology, microbiomics, and systems biology. These developments are sparking unprecedented innovation in healthcare, enabling us to dream of a future where every person gets the right care at the right time, even before disease strikes.

Despite these new tools, chronic disease is epidemic, especially among young adults and children, who face a lifetime of suffering. Vague and debilitating symptoms are aggravated by confused and disconnected care. A major patient frustration is the lack of care coordination across medical specialists, even more so for complementary interventions like diet, exercise, and meditation. Results from our Stanford Medicine X 2015 survey of autoimmune patients reflect these cries for help, which are also shown in other patient communities.

“It took 7 years and 13 doctors to even TEST for autoimmunity. I feel cheated out of so many years of my life.”

“I would like a team of healers working together, ‘looking at the body as a whole system’ to determine diagnosis and best outcome for each patient.”

This panel is an opportunity for Stanford Medicine X’s empowered patients to lead in the integration of complementary and conventional medicine to help reverse the accelerating growth of chronic diseases.

Inspirational entrepreneurs developing innovative delivery approaches will highlight how they are tackling chronic disease management in new and different ways.

As principal of DrBonnie360, Bonnie Feldman brings a 360-degree view of private and public healthcare to her consulting work, which includes business development, market research and communications in newly emerging markets.

Bonnie has earned a broad and deep understanding of the players and the playing field in Health 2.0/3.0, life science capital markets, and healthcare practice.

Most recently, for “Big Data in Healthcare- Hype and Hope” she interviewed more than 40 Big Data experts, identifying three trends in the use of Big Data forming the emerging healthcare data ecosystem. A slide show and white paper published by Rock Health, has been enjoyed by more than 75,000 global professionals. Subsequent work has been enjoyed by the O’Reilly StrataRx community.

Previously, she interviewed 50 experts in behavioral economics and psychology, gaming, new media, technology and healthcare, to write “Mobile, Social and Fun: Games for Health,” published by MobiHealthNews. Her research unveiled an emerging ecosystem of companies using gaming mechanics and online support to spur patient engagement – from managing chronic disease to encouraging health and wellness.

On the analytic side, after working as a health services researcher at the Rand Corporation, she worked on Wall Street as both a buy-side and sell-side equity research analyst, where she followed changing markets and rapidly evolving companies across the spectrum of healthcare. Tackling the problem of ineffective investor presentations, she developed a methodology that uses bottom-up-analytics, supported by visual storytelling to create presentations that excite and engage audiences.

In practice, as the builder and owner of two dental practices, she managed finances, business development, staffing, operations and patient care as well as performing claims review consulting for Prudential.

She holds a BA in Economics, a Doctor of Dental Surgery, and an MBA in Finance from the University of California, Los Angeles.
