Bertalan Meskó, Director of The Medical Futurist Institute, interviewed by Trond Arne Undheim, futurist and author.

In this conversation, we talk about the emergence of rapid healthcare transformation. Current best practices. We cover the many disruptive forces affecting medicine. How to track trends? What will medicine look like in the next decade? We discuss the advance of digital health and beyond. I find out how Bertalan tracks signals from sci-tech, startups, stakeholder dialogue, and visionary thinking and how he experiments on himself, testing out each medical innovation before recommending it or ever writing or speaking about it. 

After listening to the episode, find out more about The Medical Futurist and check out Bertalan Meskó's social media profile.

  • The Medical Futurist:
  • Bertalan Meskó (@berci): 
  • Trond's takeaway: "Bertalan's notion that the future of medicine is invisible, seamless, and preventive is a great vision to have. In my own forthcoming book, Health Tech: Rebooting Society's Software, Hardware and Mindset, which is forthcoming on Routledge this fall, I make the point that the grand challenges of our time demand that we coordinate better than ever before. Shaping the future requires being aware of the opportunities and able to capitalize on them. That's where Bertalan is brilliant, making us all aware of the opportunities."
