Here is a great video interview of Dr Topol, discussing the future of wireless medicine.
The main drivers behind this push towards personalised and mobile healthcare are -
1. Non-intrusive and easy to use apparatus for collecting data (like the heart and blood pressure monitors shown in the video)
2. The smartphone revolution which allows instant processing and sharing of the data collected.
The huge amounts of highly personalised data collected allows doctors to stop relying on periodic measurements and human memory, and move towards constantly updated hard measurements through continuous monitoring. The dramatic increase in the quality of information available for the doctors allows them to make better diagnoses and also retrospectively discern patterns and increase our knowledge of medicine.
In the Information Age, Data is King. At Klinify, we want to help doctors unlock the potential treasure-chest of hidden data sitting inside their own clinics!
