“All of health care is based on one idea from the 1850s,” says social scientist Eric Dishman, Intel’s director of health innovation. “That it has to be delivered in a face-to-face setting.” His research on aging is behind evolving systems to provide more effective home care. His goal is to enable 50% of care in the U.S. to be delivered in the home by 2020. “That’s game-changing for quality of life, and a trillion dollars in potential savings.” This January, his work inspired a spin-off company, Care Innovations GE, a joint venture between GE and Intel.
