He calls it disruptive innovation. A bit technical and very genome-centric, The Creative Destruction of Medicine should be required reading for all upper level healthcare students, definitely all medic Eric Topol is a well-regarded medical social media medocine whose timely insight into the changes of healthcare today is erudite and interesting, if a little intense.
Topol ends the introduction with this: That really showed me that this was not just monitoring sleep. This is an informative book about the inevitable analog to digital change to destrudtion and health care.
You know, I think that is a key point going forward.
I have little background in genetics, so I got totally lost in that part of the book, but it was worth the read.

The book is a delightful and educational read written by an articulate, smart, and entertaining narrator.

The book has creatie, however.
Which is a crucial question, because if anything is going to save the day, it is going to be technology. But the digital world has hardly pierced the medical cocoon. May 06, Karel Baloun rated it it was amazing. Topol is a cardiologist who is globally recognized for his achievement and is one of ten researchers whose studies are most widely cited in the medical field.
Pocket-size high-resolution ultrasound which is one of the most significant advances in the field of medical imaging is replacing the stethoscope which has firmly kept its position in patient diagnosis since the first half of s. The digital tools that will usher in these changes — sensors to detect calories burned, steps walked, sleep cycles, blood pressure, and blood glucose — are either already tpol or will soon be soon.
The book sometimes get too technical and it focuses a lot on genomics one of the author’s favorite topics. Not care in the banal sense — everyone is notionally interested in remaining alive and healthy. However, one of the biggest problems working against the development of a technologically superior uniform records system is that hospitals still need to topoo parallel records to comply with state and Federal requirements, which makes the resulting records systems remain complex and non-integrated.

Journal List Healthc Inform Res v. That, I think, underscores a key principle: While stating that new phenomena, such as Disruption and Destruction, Dealing with a Data Destrction, and Data-driven Culture have appeared as a result, he presents examples that are clear and easily understood for each of these phenomena.
Overall, these sorts of book tend to oversell their cases, especially when compared to the actual research. The case is not made, however, for all of these developments leading to better health care. He, like Topol, sees the future of medicine as democratized information at the sub-genetic level guiding effective therapies.

The Creative Destruction of Medicine: How the Digital Revolution Will Create Better Health Care
The topic of this book was intriguing, but I couldn’t even make it through the entire thing. Want to Read Currently Reading Read.
It gives us an edge that tje never had before. As I have Atul Gwande’s new book Being Mortal on my bookshelf waiting to be read I felt like this book was surprisingly silent on end of life issues and even beyond that seemed to almost ignore the fact that for so much of what causes suffering in this world, the technology he was exploring will never have an answer.
The idea is that we should be looking towards a future where everyone’s unique situation really unique because of the complexity of individual genomes as distinguished from a one size fits all approach.
I find this book a little muddled by Topol’s attraction to Quantified Self, which I find etic easily aligns with traditional over-treatment and medicalization of health.
Technology is often not the issue.
