IN THIS SUMMARY

In The Patient Will See You Now, Eric Topol shows how the smartphone is the printing press of today's medical world. He begins by explaining how the current medical system is broken--it takes months for an appointment that is too short, too impersonal, and costs too much. He continues to describe how the technology imbedded into smartphones cannot only replace a myriad of basic lab tests and physical exam needs, but can also be used to transport medical care to far reaches of the world. He dissects the inherent risks in accumulating mass medical data and describes his vision for democratized personal medicine.
