The compelling idea behind digital health isn’t just to deliver health data to patients and doctors. It’s to turn that data into a narrative that reveals some kind of story about a person’s health.
That’s what Dr. Leslie Saxon and her team are trying to achieve at the Center for Body Computing at the University of Southern California. Trained in invasive cardiology, Saxon is the chief of cardiovascular medicine at USC’s Keck School of Medicine. On the side, she works at the center with engineers, physicians, designers, artists and entertainers to study and develop digital health solutions that put patients at the center of their own care.
