This Thursday, October 9th, the University of Southern California will host its 3rd conference on the medical phenomenon known as “Body Computing,” an advancement where implanted devices transmit up-to-the-second physiologic data to physicians, patients and patients’ loved ones. Leslie Saxon, chief cardiologist at USC’s medical school imagines a world where you can wake up to the status of your loved ones’ heart condition or blood pressure via text on your cell phone or email on your PDA. In attendance will be the who’s who of international medicine, including high-level execs of Boston Scientific, GE Healthcare, Medtronic, Texas Instruments and J&J. The agenda includes heated debates over controversial physical, ethical and legal questions over topics such as Privacy Issues, Medical Costs and Patient Empowerment.
