There is no more pressing issue in today’s world than health. And for as long as most can remember, the solutions are been largely the same. The stethoscope, an iconic symbol of medicine and the physical exam is a perfect example. It has changed little from the times of inventor Rene Leannec in 1817. Yet it still hangs over the shoulders of clinicians like a prayer shawl or a badge of clinical validation.
This is changing, changing rapidly. The advances in technology are disturbing, challenging and empowering a new “social collective” that will change medicine at its very core. From data to people, digital health is poised to establish a new medical society driven less by the oppressive hegemony of today’s system but by the birth of the citizen scientist and the empowered patient.
