"Will we see a Tesla-ization of medicine?" asks Heyo Kroemer, CEO of Charit Universit ? tsmedizin Berlin, one of the largest academic health centers in Europe.
"We've seen this before.
Tesla had no experience in creating cars, and now they are one of the leaders in the car industry."
Kroemer spoke at the Alliance of Academic Health Centers International's (AAHCI's) Global Innovation Forum in Washington, DC, last week, and he's not talking about electric cars.
Rather, he's talking about the future of global health, which he says will be shaped by digitalization and the use of artificial intelligence, per the Association of American Medical Colleges.
"All those aging individuals will need health care, and many institutions are already struggling with severe provider shortages," Kroemer says.
"Every medical institution in the world has to think about how we get the necessary human resources in the next 10 to 15 years."
