Mobile Is Helping To Spur The Next Revolution In Health Care — The Transfer Of Power To Consumers And Patients

Mobile Is Helping To Spur The Next Revolution In Health Care — The Transfer Of Power To Consumers And Patients | High Technology in the Northeast Kingdom of Vermont | Scoop.it
The key to all the enthusiasm for mobile medicine is that the health care industry is cost-obsessed. Anything that tamps down on costs will be of interest.

Via John Rudkin
Edward S Gilbert Jr's insight:

This is true for any business model really, however the healthcare industry has a TON of redundancy, waste and look what happened with NECC creating one of the worst medical contaminations in US HISTORY.  The people dying, suffering from the infections generated due to the pursuit of cutting cost while generating profits.  It clearly was not being regulated by the FDA due to changes implemented in regulations of that industry.  Consumers and patients need to stay on top of information with their healthcare providers, using technology to educate themselves as well as keeping their providers to the standards we all deserve with our medical professionals.  We have one of the best healthcare systems going due to innovation.  We need the checks and balances to cut the greed/fraud without caring of how it impacts other peoples lives.  This happening at 2013 proves greed/fraud is a human condition that needs to be held accountable!

The personal computer and the internet tie for first and I use both too much. In fact, I started using (and programming) a computer when I was 10 years old.
Edward S Gilbert Jr's insight:

I have grown to hate programming, however I have used many different programming languages throughout my 25+ years maintaining, operating or designing information systems.  With Smartphones (AKA handheld computers), Tablets (Touch Sreen Computers) to laptops we are becoming a very mobile work force.  However, how long will this new fade continue?

Privacy as the next green movement? Study says companies will compete on data practices | High Technology in the Northeast Kingdom of Vermont | Scoop.it
Remember the 1990′s when companies rushed to brand their products as “enviro-friendly” to attract green-conscious consumers?
