INDIANAPOLIS — Shruti Iyer, principal innovation architect at Oracle Health Sciences, will keynote the conference, “The Potential of Artificial Intelligence and Smart Devices in Healthcare, being presented April 29 in Indianapolis by the Indiana University Kelley School of Business.
Iyer will kick off the conference, the latest event in the Indiana Life Sciences Collaboration Conference Series, organized by Kelley’s Center for the Business of Life Sciences. The Indiana Biosciences Research Institute – located in the 16 Tech Innovation District – is the conference host.
“The potential uses of artificial intelligence in diagnosing conditions and treating patients are growing,” said George Telthorst, director of the Center for the Business of Life Sciences and a senior lecturer at the Kelley School. “Regulatory bodies weigh benefits versus patient risks as they consider approving products using AI. Among other things, this conference will explore how AI and the phone in one’s pocket may well represent the next leap forward in healthcare.”
Sessions will focus on applications of artificial intelligence in current use and its potential and limits for further uses. Presenters will include specialists from the IU School of Medicine and the University of Missouri, the Indiana Biosciences Research Institute as well as senior executives at Anthem, CareAscend, Community Health Network, Elanco, Eli Lilly and Company, hc1, LifeOmic, OneBridge, Roche Information Systems and Zimmer Biomet. Support also comes from the State of Indiana.
The conference is a hybrid, taking place in person at 1210 Waterway Blvd in Indianapolis and will be presented online. It will begin at 9 a.m. and wrap up at 3:15 p.m. The Indiana Biosciences Research Institute will offer a tour of 16 Tech at the conclusion of the conference.
As principal innovation architect at Oracle, Iyer leads clinical innovation in the Health Sciences Global Business Unit and works with cross-functional teams in transforming complex challenges into innovative, simple, and patient-centric solutions to advance clinical development and care delivery.
Prior to Oracle, Lyer worked at Medtronic in a variety of roles driving end-to-end medical device development in the neuromodulation and cardiac rhythm and heart failure businesses. She most recently led product risk strategy for a remote patient monitoring solution for late-stage heart failure patients.
She has a Bachelor of Engineering in Biomedical Engineering and a Master of Science degree in Medical Device Innovation – both from the University of Minnesota – Twin Cities – where she also graduated as a Technological Leadership Institute Fellow.
