Business-to-business publisher WTWH Media has announced that Carla Pugh, professor of surgery and director of the Technology Enabled Clinical Improvement (TECI) Center at Stanford University School of Medicine, will deliver a keynote address at the 2019 Healthcare Robotics Engineering Forum.
The Healthcare Robotics Engineering Forum, which takes place at the Santa Clara Convention Center on Dec. 9-10, 2019, is a conference and expo focused on easing, speeding, and improving the design, development, and manufacture of healthcare robotics products and services.
Pugh’s keynote, “Technology Enabled Clinical Improvement,” will describe how advanced technologies, coupled with evolving medical practices, are transforming healthcare and dramatically improving clinical workflows. She will highlight how new surgical approaches incorporating simulation, analytics, haptics and sensing are being used to empower surgeons, reduce surgical risks and improve patient outcomes.
Pugh will also comment on the clinical necessity for embracing and incorporating the same advanced approaches and technologies, with other classes of healthcare solutions. This includes robotics systems, which by definition are highly sensored, and often employ haptics, simulation, and machine learning, all of which are routinely used to increase the capabilities and improve the functionality of robotics systems.
“We are delighted to have Carla Pugh deliver a keynote session at the Healthcare Robotics Engineering Forum,” stated Dan Kara, vice president of robotics at WTWH Media. “Carla is well known and very respected within the global medical community for her leadership role in advocating data-driven practices, as well as the use of of sensors, simulation, and other advanced technologies to improve surgical procedures and clinical outcomes. She is perfectly positioned to reveal to Healthcare Robotics Engineering Forum attendees how these same approaches and technologies can improve other classes of healthcare solutions, including robotics systems.”
“The Healthcare Robotics Engineering Forum provides an excellent opportunity to address those developing the next generation of healthcare robotics systems,” said Pugh. “I look forward to keynoting the event and discussing the ways sensors, haptics, simulation, machine learning, and more can be utilized to increase capabilities and improve functionality of their solutions.”
