“Digital disruption of healthcare” is a broad and fairly new concept that can be described as the positive impact of technology on healthcare with the main goals:

  • Streamlining physicians’ work
  • Optimizing systems
  • Improving patient outcomes
  • Reducing human error
  • Lowering costs
  • Bringing AI-enabled autonomous health to provide the best diagnostics equally

Disruptive advances require huge information processing power enabled by digital computing including AI, thus “Digital”. In this talk from Samsung Forum, Janusz Bryzek provides an overview of 21 enablers of Digital healthcare Disruption, most representing outstanding business opportunities.

About the Speaker

Janusz Bryzek received his MSEE and Ph.D. from Warsaw University of Technology, Poland. He completed the Executive Management Program at Stanford University.

Janusz is considered as one of the pioneers of MEMS and Father of Sensors. He cofounded eleven Silicon Valley MEMS (micro-mechanical integrated systems) companies: Sensym (acquired by Honeywell), ICSensors (acquired by EG&G), NovaSensor (acquired by Lucas Automotive, then GE Healthcare), Intelligent MicroSensor Technology (acquired by Maxim), Transparent Networks (technology acquired by Intel), InvenSense (public), LVSI (acquired by Atmel), Jyve (acquired by Fairchild Semiconductor), JB MEMS (consulting), TSensors Summit (non-profit) and eXo Imaging (active).

In 1989 he was recognized as “Entrepreneur of the Year” by Arthur Young. In 1994 he was awarded the Lifetime Achievement Award by Sensors Magazine and in 2003 by MANCEF. In 2016, he got the award Outstanding Business Executive by Polish Embassy in the US. In 2018 he received Industry Impact Award for Engineering Excellence from Sensors Expo. Bryzek has published over 250 papers, wrote sections of 4 books, organized and chaired many international conferences. He authored 30 US patents and multiple pending patent applications. He started several sensor standardization efforts, including AAMI Disposable Blood Pressure Transducers, IEEE-1451 Smart Sensor Communication, and Trillion Sensors Initiative. Dr. Bryzek serves on several Advisory Boards. He is also a member of IEEE-MEMS Program Committee).
