I expect we are failing to imagine all the other opportunities that exist but makes some key points
For thousands of years, the science and art of medicine has been passed down from generation to generation under an apprenticeship model (it's called "a practice" after all). Today, we have an opportunity to leverage technology to make doctors' wisdom accessible to all. To date, we've published entire encyclopedias of medical knowledge, but they remain largely impenetrable by the mass audience. What's missing is useful, user-friendly information that guides healthy behavior
It's only a matter of time before a platform emerges that can aggregate and safely store patient information in one place.
we will need an efficient system to triage health queries and manage patients based on urgency, severity, and available capacity
Technology can actually help foster a stronger culture of care in a fast-paced world – when visits are more efficient, doctors have more time to hold a hand, share a smile, alleviate anxiety, and talk with each patient…..Making patients healthier and happier
