The AI Helping Manage Chronic Diseases panel at 4D Meets AI discusses the detection, prevention, and intelligent agents treating and managing the stages inherent in chronic disease. AI is supporting increased data volume, improving personalized therapy for patients, in addition to providing more access to patients for daily management. The panel covers a diverse range of chronic disease and solutions providing clinicians with up-to-date information for optimal therapeutic decision-making and patients with the information they need to live happy and healthy lives.

The pre-recorded panel will be part of 4D Meets AI digital partnering conference, taking place September 17-18, 2020.

Moderator: Rick Berenson, CEO, Thermalin

Artificial intelligence (AI) and sensor technology used in implantable and wearable devices and managed care solutions use smart, natural language-based agents to help clinicians and patients with chronic disease management. Rick co-founded Thermalin, which is developing the StampPump – a postage-stamp-sized, wearable, intelligent glucose management system for people with T1 and T2 diabetes. As a connected sensor platform, StampPump will deliver continuous metabolic telemetry that, with the assistance of machine learning algorithms, will enable physicians to better coach diabetes patients and fine-tune their glucose control algorithms. Rick raised the funding, built the scientific and business teams, and drives the company’s strategy. Rick received a JD-MBA from Harvard Business and Law Schools in 1984, then worked for Bell Laboratories and an AI startup before joining McKinsey & Company. He subsequently became a serial entrepreneur who has previously launched and financed multiple life science organizations.
