A secret weapon for better health | Teng Yan Yau | TEDxNUS

How can we keep you (and everyone) healthy, at a global scale? Dr Yau Teng Yan challenges the perception that the doctor is the hero, and shows how technology can help you develop positive health habits and behaviour changes. He highlights the urgent need for more people to get involved in healthcare innovation to stem the rising tide of chronic diseases.

Dr Yau is a trained medical doctor and Chief Medical Officer at Holmusk, a digital health and data science company. His team develops and delivers an effective, engaging and scalable digital program (GlycoLeap) for people living with chronic diseases like diabetes. He believes that technology and artificial intelligence will transform the delivery of healthcare, to achieve better outcomes, reduced costs and improved patient experience.
