Various computer technologies are transforming the practice of medicine and healthcare. It has been well-recognized that personalized medicine and healthcare would be much more effective than the traditional one-size-for-all model. The availability of smartphones, smartwatches, and health trackers makes it possible for collect valuable data from individuals. The collected data can then be analyzed and used to train personalized models, which could lead to early diagnosis of diseases and personized treatments. Technologies have also been used to help diagnose some diseases much faster, and potentially with higher accuracy. On the other hand, the availability of consumer-grade depth cameras makes it possible to develop systems that be deployed at residential homes to help guide patients to perform rehabilitation exercises for a speedy recovery. Furthermore, virtual reality has been used in the medical setting to reduce patient pain levels. It is foreseeable that similar technologies exemplified by Microsoft HoloLens, Mixed Reality Headsets, virtual reality headsets such as HTC Vive and Oculus, can be used to deliver personalized immersive content to reduce stress, depression, addiction, and to treat other mental illnesses. Technologies are also being developed to monitor seniors who suffer from mild cognitive impairments and dementia, and to provide the necessary intervention. In summary, there are tremendous exciting opportunities for computer scientists and medical professionals to work together to transform medicine and healthcare.
