This review is from: The Creative Destruction of Medicine: How the Digital Revolution Will Create Better Health Care (Kindle Edition)
Stop waiting for the future, it's already here. Dr Topol has provided a veritable tour de force on the current state of the convergence of mobile health technologies and genomics. This book is written exactly the way Dr Topol presents; with passion, extraordinary depth of knowledge but above all a deep desire to positively influence the direction of modern medicine. Although I am not a stranger to the topics at hand, he discusses them with incredible perspective as to how these new technologies will forever alter the way we practice medicine. It becomes abundantly clear that our practice of 'Medicine by the yard' is clearly not the strategy that will allow us optimally utilize the devices and technologies discussed.

For the first time in history we are witnessing an explosion of medical data and devices which are out pacing medicines ability to incorporate and utilize it. The mechanisms that currently exist for disease risk prediction, diagnosis, prognosis, treatment and continuous monitoring will soon appear archaic in the wake of not only the technologies of tomorrow but those that exist right now. We currently have in our hands the unique ability to 'Schumpeter' modern medicine as Dr Topol would say; it is incumbent on us as physicians of the future to ensure this happens.

If you are a physician or patient who wants an incredible window into the future of medicine, you will find it here.
