This position drives her to provide education and resources to leaders, entrepreneurs, physicians, healthcare professionals and innovators to positively impact medicine and healthcare.

My new book, The Patient as CEO: How Technology Empowers the Healthcare Consumer, went on sale on Amazon two weeks ago and the response so far has been thrilling. 
The Patient as CEO ranked #1 on Amazon in Biomedical Engineering books. I've had many healthcare professionals reach out to me after hearing out about the book to discuss partnerships to work towards the future of medicine.
My goal is to make sure patients everywhere are aware of what is happening in healthcare technology, so they be a key decision-maker on their healthcare team.
With the convergence of fast-moving technologies, it is an exciting time in medicine! In The Patient as Ceo, learn about:
• Artificial Intelligence
• Robotics
• Data and Sensors
• Virtual Reality
• 3D Printing
• Power of the Crowd
...And more!

We are on the cusp of a healthcare revolution.

From wearable sensors, to improved point-of-care diagnostics to artificial intelligence and robotics, there are a great and growing number of breakthroughs in biomedical technology which are set to fundamentally change the way that patients interact with their healthcare providers.

Author Robin Farmanfarmaian has seen this change first-hand. Misdiagnosed at age 16, she endured multiple surgeries and countless hospitalizations over the course of a decade before deciding to take charge of her own healthcare and changing her life overnight. Since then, Robin has become an entrepreneur, and has worked on more than 10 early stage startups, including three as one of the Founders: The Organ Preservation Alliance, Exponential Medicine at Singularity University, and Morfit.

In The Patient as CEO, she shines a light on the new and upcoming breakthroughs that will allow you, the patient, to be the key decision-maker - the CEO - of your own healthcare.
