Healthcare & Life Sciences
Heidi Dohse is a senior program manager focused on Healthcare for Google's Cloud Platform. She works with Google partners, including Fitbit, to develop health-based wearable devices and health analytics capabilities. She is a professional heart patient and founding member of the Health eHeart Study. Heidi is passionate about improving patient outcomes. She partners with physicians and researchers around the world to better empower individuals so that they can live active and healthy lives. She travels globally educating audiences on the Internet of Medical Things (IoMT), data and healthcare.
Heidi is a trailblazer. In 1982, Heidi was diagnosed with a rare heart arrhythmia. She underwent a successful AV ablation procedure leaving her heartbeat 100% pacemaker dependent. Heidi had open chest surgery in 2010, and with the help of her pacemaker, wearable devices, and applications she had the data she needed to get from the hospital bed to the finish line of a 50-mile bike race. Armed with her heart rate data and trained analytics, she now competes in endurance cycling events around the world. Her next personal challenge is to complete a 10k running event in November 2018.
Heidi is a living example of how emerging capabilities in healthcare can enable patients to live life to the fullest.
