The Economist: Health 2.0 How far can interactive digital medicine go?

The Economist looks in on Health 2.0 in the article, Health 2.0: How far can interactive digital medicine go?

Highlights for me:

  • Quote by Neil Seeman who thinks Health 2.0 is important “because it reinvents how we identify opinion leaders and exploit disruptive innovation.”
  • Steve Case, founder of America Online, who likens the current state of digital medicine to the late 1970s hwen Apple ushered in the age of personal computing.
  • Concluding remarks taht Health 2.0 might not be revolution but instead reformation and recognition that the shift towards patient empowerment is “unstoppable.”
