Insights from Dr. Eric Topol at #SHSMD14

Patient care will eventually win, but sacred cows still have a lot of fight in them.

I’m still chewing on this one. I definitely love the idea of remote visits. Not sure it’s the smartest patient room.

This trend is definitely happening. Although, if you sound out Iwwiwwiwi, it sounds a lot like whining. I’m not sure that’s a good thing. Either way, I think the market is going to push towards on demand medicine.

I’d love to hear more about this topic. I think the first step is identifying the real cost problem. Seems like these top drugs could provide a really good start.
