Are We Thinking Too Small?
If the World Health Organization defined the term “health” as a state of complete physical, mental and social well-being and not merely the absence of disease or infirmity back in 1948, then can we really believe that health records only containing information about our physical health will be a panacea for the future of health care in America? Shouldn’t we be looking at more?
Imagine a world where all of your data seemlessly flows into and out of a single interface, and connects with everyone in, and even out in some cases, of your network. Pretty futuristic right? Well, people are working on this today, and I think that’s very cool.
Watch this eight minute video and tell me that we all shouldn’t be demanding something like this in the next five to ten years.
