The Not Old Better Show Science Interview Series

Welcome to today’s episode of the Not Old Better Show, brought to you by MDHearing and, by TalkSpace The Not Old Better Show Prevention Magazine Interview Series is where we dive deep into the intersection of healthcare and cutting-edge technology, specifically the role of artificial intelligence (AI) in transforming the landscape of medical care for individuals over 60. As we navigate through this age of digital medicine, AI has emerged as a beacon of hope, promising to enhance the accuracy of medical diagnoses through advanced image interpretation. Yet, as we stand on the cusp of this new era, questions and concerns about its integration into healthcare, especially for the elderly, abound.

Today, we are joined by the renowned health, science, and medical writer, and award-winning novelist Meryl Davids Landau, who will guide us through the fascinating world of AI in healthcare. We’ll explore how AI is reading test images with unprecedented accuracy, potentially revolutionizing the way conditions are diagnosed. However, it’s not a panacea; the technology comes with its set of challenges, including ethical considerations, regulatory hurdles, and the nuanced issue of how some AI-driven interventions may not always be recommended for older adults.

Our conversation science, and medical writer, and award-winning novelist Meryl Davids Landau will not only illuminate the capabilities and limitations of AI in healthcare but also what it means for you, our listeners. As we delve into this topic, we encourage you to think about the implications of AI on your health and well-being. How can you engage with your healthcare providers to understand the role AI might play in your care? What questions should you be asking to ensure that the technology serves your best interests?

Join us as we unpack these questions and more, offering insights, expertise, and thought-provoking discussions designed to empower you to take an active role in your healthcare journey in the age of AI.
