JOHANNESBURG, June 6, 2017 /PRNewswire/ --"Healthcarein South Africa is changing significantly," says futurist Jack Uldrich. "Technology and globalcommunications are paving the way for unprecedented improvements for everyone in the nation."
Jack Uldrichmakes it his mission to help healthcareleaders address and embrace the imminent changes in the field. He has been selected to speak at the Future of Health Summit in Johannesburg, South Africa on June 9. The topic of his talk will be, "The Future of Health Care: 2020, 2025 and Beyond."
He will discuss how innovations in healthcare (new treatments, technologies, trends, telemedicine, etc.,) will transform the experience for patients, healthcare professionals and hospitals in South Africa. He will also discuss how these same trends will affect the broader Continent of Africa.
Among the trends Uldrichwill focus on is longevity.
"Typically," says Uldrich, "White South Africans currently have a lifeexpectancyof 71 years, while blackSouth Africanshave a life expectancy of 48 years of age. In the nextten to twenty years, one of the possibilities in healthcare may be increasing the overall life expectancy of all South Africansto those found in North America."
In the coming decades, longevity may increase worldwide, on average toward upward of 90 years.
Other technological trends he will discuss are Artificial Intelligence, wearable technology, augmentedreality, virtualreality, wireless mobility, nanotechnology,genomicsequencing, robotics, and3D printing.
Uldrichsays, "With bio-printed organs, living past the age of 90 will not be anything like living to that age today. We're already printing skin, kidneys, a replica of a beating human heart. Soon, if a person loses a limb, it's theoretically possible that we'll be able to print, layer by layer, a replacement."
Considered a technology visionary in the fields of healthcare, agriculture, finance, and energy,Uldrichspeaks hundreds of times a year all over the world delivering keynotes on technologicaltrends and the concept of unlearning.
He has spoken on the future of finance in the Bahamas, new opportunities in manufacturingin Brussels, the future of education in Istanbuland on the future of urban planning (addressing the Urban Land Institute) in San Francisco, among many others.
Following his engagementin Johannesburg, Uldrichwill return to the U.S. to speak to KeHeDistributors in Minneapolis on the future of the food industry on June 13 and address a private client in Houston, TX on the future of the petrochemical industry on June 20.
