Keynote: Takeru Yamamoto
As the use of wearable devices enabling communication and coordination spreads rapidly in the fields of health and medicine, not only their use in health management by individuals and medical institutions but also their application by pharmaceutical companies and in the field of medical device development are progressing. Using specific case examples, this lecture explains how big data produced by wearable devices worn by patients is starting to be utilized in the development of new drugs and medical equipment.
Keynote: Rishi Bhalerao
Innovation, in every industry, is driven by an exchange of ideas and from input from a diverse set of participants. However, in the healthcare industry, the ultimate customer--the patient--is often not consulted. Today, the role of patients is changing rapidly. Patients are becoming engaged and informed, and their participation will forever change the healthcare ecosystem: from discovery, to development, to delivery. For the past 10+ years, PatientsLikeMe has been at the forefront of this conversation--learning from patients and driving insights that help promote scientific progress.
Rishi's talk will explore a number of topics, including: How can healthcare systems learn from patients? What are some examples of involving patients from PatientsLikeMe and what have we learnt from these examples? How can you apply some of these ideas in your work?
Patients are no longer voice- and powerless. Innovation is allowing them to be more engaged in their care and become pro-active co-producers of their own health. This session invites patients to share their experiences and hopes for technology and highlights innovative solutions for their empowerment.

Keynote: Yosuke Chikamoto, PhD, Director, Center for Excellence in Physician Communication, Mount Sinai Health System
Physicians and Health 2.0: Health Outcomes, Patient Experience and Professional Satisfaction
Advancement in technology has been changing how physicians practice medicine, more specifically how they communicate with their patients. Is the advancement driven by health outcome improvement, patient experience enhancement, and/or practice management, or simply by the availability of new technology?
Based on his experience in supporting physicians’ communication skills development at Kaiser Permanente, Yosuke Chikamoto, PhD will discuss his observation of how new technologies have impacted physician practice such as the introduction of the electronic medical records into the exam room, and the additional modalities such as telephone visits, video visits and email communication with the patients. He will share practical examples from his communication coaching with physicians to demonstrate the importance of integrating health outcomes, patient experience and professional satisfaction when introducing new innovations into physician practice.
The most important area within Japan’s growth strategy—one of the “three arrows” of Abenomics—is healthcare. In order to achieve success in this area, it is important for Japan to construct a system for productization, including setting-up venture businesses for the commercialization of research results, and the cooperation of physicians is crucial in this. Facing a super-aging society unprecedented in the history of humankind, it is our duty as physicians to discuss healthcare research in Japan and its commercialization, as well as healthcare innovations arising from this research, from the standpoint of physicians.
