In this discussion on sleep care and technology, the panel tied sleep's importance to mental health, productivity, awareness, and overall wellbeing. The panel consisted of professionals in sleep technology, behavioral sleep medicine, sleep health, and venture capital. They emphasized the importance of a regular sleep schedule, limiting exposure to blue screens near bedtime, and cognitive behavioral therapy for insomnia. The panel also highlighted the importance of accessing evidence-based treatments, examining personal sleep data, considering the individuality of sleep health, and addressing issues of health equity. They also discussed the challenges of understanding sleep data and how the medical community and consumers can use this data. Various sleep technologies, such as wearables, sensors, and sleep apps, were highlighted for their potential to advance sleep health. They also touched on the importance of building trust in health data for both physicians and consumers. Finally, they mentioned a sleep study happening at Harvard using the OURA ring.
