Art Jones's insight:

"The device and app alone can work quite well, but there is an historical precedent of people, including those with chronic conditions, not being interested in actively managing their own health. Let's not forget that older technical initiatives such as educational CD-ROMs and nurse-on-call programmes didn't get much traction when they were introduced years ago.

Technology may advance and change, but the same can't be said for human nature. However, adding communities of actual people to the mix – people who share the same condition, close friends and family members who have a loving stake in a person's health and well-being – will cause a transformation in empowered patient disease management."

Mayo Clinic Surgeons Investigate Use of Drones for Medicine

Ambulance Drone with automatic external defibrillator onboard Commercially available unmanned aerial vehicles (UAVs), commonly known as drones, have gotten
Art Jones's insight:

"A drone can be used to deliver blood immediately as soon as a call is received, arriving fresh from a blood bank before the patient even reaches the emergency room. This can allow hospitals to avoid keeping large amounts of blood in stock, in turn reducing the overall demand for it. Moreover, drones are significantly cheaper to use for deliveries compared to helicopters. Since Mayo Clinic’s choppers make about 400 flights a year delivering blood and plasma, each costing thousands of dollars, drones can certainly be doing this job for pennies on the dollar in the near future."
