Live notes

The Patient Will See You Now, book by Dr. Eric Topol.

Scale of data collection.

Apple’s HealthKit and rearchkit — in a day over 10k people enrolled in a day.

Main mission of consumer is another more educated conversation with doctor. And willing to pay for data interpretation.

Too much data? Topol says becomes hoarded data.

Data is a conglomerate of noise and signal, deBrouwer. By collecting data on ourselves, we increase our signal. 

Wisdom of body. Homeostasis. New way for individual to have control. Topol

DeBrouwer: data can heal. Digital homeostasis. Beyond the individual.

Mobile phone medical record is what we want. Has to be automatic.

Big data is a wasteland and bottleneck is.

[Ironic to see McDonald logo behind them–and Miller Lite.]

Home runs?

Dr. Eric Topol: cutting across all medicine. Folks who can process huge swaths of data are working in other industries.

Big Data the next microscope/telescope

Behaviorial change: when people see data, it changes their behavior short term. 

DeBrouwer: everyone doing it helps with quitting smoking.

Clinicians not going away.
