The fact that 2/3 of patients have a primary care provider will drive health into retail clinics.

 

"In a past study, Mehrotra found that about two-thirds of clinic patients had no primary care provider. But, he said, that means that one-third did.

Heart Gadgets Test Privacy-Law Limits => A challenge for Connected Health?

Heart Gadgets Test Privacy-Law Limits => A challenge for Connected Health? | Concierge Physician | Scoop.it

My comment:  Should patients be given open access to data from implanted devices such as pacemakers and ICDs?  In a world of personalized medicine patients can titrate therir activity and diet and medication use to physiologivc parameters.  But who is to blame if it doesnt go well and there is patient harm?  Doctors? Device manufacturers?  Patients?

======================

The U.S. has strict privacy laws guaranteeing people access to traditional health files. But implants and other new technologies—including smartphone apps and over-the-counter monitors—are testing the very definition of medical records..
