Excerpt featuring Dr. Abramson from the article “Self-Tracking May Become Key Element of Personalized Medicine: Medicine X 2012″ from ucsf.edu News Center, 10/5/2012.
Paul Abramson MD, a UCSF clinical instructor who described himself as a longtime self-tracker, started off in engineering but switched to medicine because he was more drawn toward hearing people’s individual stories [...]
I was interviewed by Susan Young, the new biomedicine editor of Technology Review this week, ostensibly about a proposed Mini Cooper model that includes integrated heart rate and other sensors. Susan recently took over for Emily Singer who wrote numerous articles on the Quantified Self and related topics.
Susan also inteviewed Dr. Leslie Saxon MD [...]
I gave a talk on implementing self tracking in my medical practice at the Medicine X 2012 Conference at Stanford on September 28, 2012. A bit of perspective on the health care system and its shortcomings provided an introduction to a new model of care involving a Quant Coach as an integral member of a [...]
What lessons have we learned about implementing self tracking as part of a personalized medical practice? I gave an Ignite talk (20 slides, 15 seconds each) at the Quantified Self Conference 2012 at Stanford University to discuss lessons learned so far about how best to use self tracking in the medical care of individual patients. [...]
I had the good fortune to make a presentation on “N of 1″ trials, self tracking and personal experiments at the Medicine of Cycling conference 8/25/2012, held at the US Olympic Training Center in Colorado Springs. It was a great audience and discussion afterward led to many ideas about how modern self-tracking technology could be [...]
