Modern drug therapy has transformed life on the planet and saved countless lives since the advent of antibiotics in the early 20th Century. Yet today, a huge amount of waste in healthcare has to do with drug therapy that is at best useless - and all too often, harmful. Dr. Jeff Balser challenges us to imagine a not-so-distant future in which the human genome and big data converge to transform healthcare, allowing us to do the right thing — and only the right thing — for the right person, at the right time and in the right location. Dr. Jeffrey R. Balser, a '84 engineering graduate of Tulane University and a '90 graduate of the Vanderbilt MD/PhD program in pharmacology, undertook residency training in anesthesiology and fellowship training in critical care medicine at Johns Hopkins, and joined the faculty at Johns Hopkins in '95. Dr. Balser returned to Vanderbilt in ‘98, serving as Associate Dean for Physician Scientists. From 2001-2004, he served as the Gwathmey Professor and Chair of the Department of Anesthesiology. Later, he served as the medical center’s chief research officer. He is a member of the National Academy of Medicine, American Society of Clinical Investigation, and the Association of American Physicians. Since 2009, he has been dean of the Vanderbilt School of Medicine and Vice Chancellor for Health Affairs. Dr. Balser oversees one of the nation’s fully integrated academic health centers (AHCs), including nearly $4 billion in annual revenue, and 20,000 employees. This talk was given at a TEDx event using the TED conference format but independently organized by a local community. Learn more at ted.com/tedx
