mHealth – Reinventing Health Care
March 28, 2012
When I wrote Reinventing Professional Services, I spotlighted changes in many different fields, including medicine. I spoke with visionary leaders like Bryan Vartabedian, MD, a pediatric gastroenterologist at Texas Children’s Hospital/Baylor College of Medicine, who writes and speaks about the convergence of social media and medicine, and practitioners. I also profiled transformations in teleradiology and sleep medicine, as well as the promise of pharmaceutical vending machines and obtaining an online diagnosis, among others.
Adam Bluestein takes a comprehensive look at how mobile health care is revolutionizing the practice of medicine in Fast Company’s February issue: As Smartphones Get Smarter, You May Get Healthier: How mHealth Can Bring Cheaper Health Care To All, which includes this great infographic.
