We are on the cusp of a healthcare revolution.

From wearable sensors, to improved point-of-care diagnostics to artificial intelligence and robotics, there are a great and growing number of breakthroughs in biomedical technology which are set to fundamentally change the way that patients interact with their healthcare providers.

Author Robin Farmanfarmaian has seen this change first-hand. Misdiagnosed at age 16, she endured multiple surgeries and countless hospitalizations over the course of a decade before deciding to take charge of her own healthcare and changing her life overnight. Since then, Robin has become an entrepreneur, and has worked on more than 10 early stage startups, including three as one of the Founders: The Organ Preservation Alliance, Exponential Medicine at Singularity University, and Morfit.

In The Patient as CEO, she shines a light on the new and upcoming breakthroughs that will allow you, the patient, to be the key decision-maker - the CEO - of your own healthcare.
