The “Pocket Doctor” Reality: Imagining the Future of Healthcare

The “Pocket Doctor” Reality: Imagining the Future of Healthcare | Quantified Self by CatalystMD | Scoop.it
Lots of people talk about the future, but what does it truly look like for the average person? One person with a completely clear vision is Peter Diamandis, doctor, entrepreneur, and founder of the X PRIZE Foundation.
Jim Meehan's insight:

Healthcare is ripe for massive disruption. The way we practice it today is very inefficient and it’s not as sufficiently distributed or democratized as it could be. We’re entering a day and age where the average individual should be able to access the best healthcare on the planet independent of their wealth and geography. The combination of the Tricorder: AI, cloud computing, digital imaging, lab on a chip, etc. can effectively [do this] for a fraction of the cost of what it’s rapidly approaching.
