Using ™Biomedical Music and Advanced Analytics to Improve Gait and Prevent Falls in Neurologic Populations

Can Music, HIT and AI help us take smarter steps to improve patient care and outcomes? You bet!

Hope Young, President of the Center for Music Therapy and CEO of the ™Biomedical Music Solution, Inc will review published studies that demonstrate improvement in gait and balance for patients using ™Biomedical Music integrated with advanced gait analytic devices as well as successful integration of music therapy into legacy health information systems.

In her presentation, Hope will also provide examples of how these results can be moved upstream into population health initiatives to improve safe active mobility within the community using wearables for telemedicine service delivery.  Partnerships across private and public sector projects will be highlighted to demonstrate the potential cost savings and impact these technologies have on underserved and isolated communities. In closing, she will discuss the uniqueness of music in normalizing and improving users experience and engagement for improving health outcomes.
