Editorial Reviews

Review

"Dr. Bertalan Mesko, the consummate medical futurist, takes us on an extended technological tour - one that bodes well for how healthcare can advance."
- Dr. Eric Topol, author of The Patient Will See You Now, Professor of Genomics, The Scripps Research Institute


"Dr. Bertalan Mesko has been called a thought leader thanks to his views on the future of medicine, and his latest book proves yet again just why he deserves that title. Dr. Mesko's thoughts on digital health are comprehensive and innovative, but most importantly, they are accessible and easily understood. This thrilling book is a must-read for patients, providers, and all other stakeholders interested in taking control of their own health."
- Dr. Larry Chu, Executive Director, Stanford Medicine X


"Sit down, loosen your mind, and settle into this book. It's an extraordinary, liberated tour of what health and treatment will be like when we no longer starve for information and when everything physical is digital - which is far closer than you think." 
- e-Patient Dave deBronkart, e-patient thought leader, speaker, author


"Only few have the gift of being transformative ánd using it; Dr. Bertalan Mesko is one of them. This book bridges Hype, Hope & reality in a way that fits both the world of technology and medicine. Definitely a must read if you're on the intersection of technology & medicine."
- Lucien Engelen, Director of the Radboud REshape Innovation Center


"An easy to read guide to future health. Introducing recent history and everyday examples of progress as evidence of trends, it looks to the future of health technologies and their interactions with everyday lifestyle with informed optimism, avoiding unnecessary jargon. It shows how the reader can take control of their own health and the many future opportunities for improving it. It also explores when we will get the technologies we see in sci-fi movies. All of this makes it a compelling but easy-going read."
- Ian Pearson, Futurologist, Author of You Tomorrow

From the Author

"I firmly believe that it's time for humanity to step up and prepare for the technological revolution in a way that we keep on improving the human touch in medicine and live healthier lives. It is only possible with more and more disruptive technologies. In My Health:Upgraded, I present how I have managed to upgrade my health in the last decade with good technologies; and what the most alarming issues are related to the future of medicine and healthcare."
Dr. Bertalan Mesko
The Medical Futurist

Format: Paperback
My Health Upgraded, Bertalan Mesko's latest book, and I've read all his works, is brilliant. It brings you three things in one: 1) a didactic snapshot of digital health today and to come 2) a practical "how-to" guide for managing your own health self-tracking 3) responses to questions from real people. And no question daunts Bercy. While I see many digital health books and articles, they are often repeats of what's already out there. My Health Upgraded is really worth your time.

A very insightful and delightful book, I found it particularly useful as I work in the healthcare industry, but it would indeed be useful for anyone who is interested in understanding the considerable transformation that is happening in this sector. The book illustrates numerous interesting cases that show how digital disruption is impacting the practice of medicine.
Hats off to the writer for a job very well done, I hope to see more works published soon.

To me, eHealth or mHealth is something mysterious and geeky, vague and big data-ish. Quite the oxymoron, but please let me explain. As Berci Mesko MD asked me to review his book « My Health Upgraded », I recalled one of the sci-fi novels from « Twelve Tomorrows » 2016 (sci-fi written by MIT, USA): « Boxes », by Nick Harkaway. "Neural cells grown on mesh, kept alive in boxes, helping you get decades more function out of your brain. And the hype. 'It was medieval to rely on ordinary, old, dying neurons! There was always an upgrade waiting next year, a better bridge or Box, and clever apps you could get that tuned your creativity and stimulated your blah blah and your neural blah… Real technology never worked like the hype, so they were always debating about the next model.' »
As someone who did a lot of ballet dance with harsh professors breathing down my neck and always telling us to eat less (so I ended up with severe anorexia at the age of 16), the last thing I would want is an app spying on my fitness routine and letting everybody know about the data, my performance or the kind of music I am listening to. But I understand people need to transform their humdrum exercice routine into something more exciting and rewarding, and fitness apps or devices have the potential to do just that. Sure thing, the Apple smartphone and watch are helpful: at the annual conference of developers in California, they conveyed the message that a marathon professional was relying on that Apple watch. If it’s good enough for a professional, the non-professionals should be able to take advantage of it, right? Smartphone is good; smart-ass phone is despicable (would remind me of some ballet profs).
