LS741B - Transforming Medicine: Modeling, Simulation and the Digital Twin

Creating a digital twin of a device, process or patient is improving outcomes. These dynamic software concepts will serve as proxies for billions of individuals and monitoring devices by the end of the decade. Are you ready for the cultural shift that will come to healthcare as digital twins and the Internet of Things (IoT) dramatically changes the face of medicine? This presentation is brought to you by ASME.
