Data are ‘democratizing medicine’

Share this:


This video is a discussion of how patient-generated data “democratizes” medicine.

Eric J. Topol, M.D., the ringleader of the talk, notes at the end: “Just to add to your point, today you Google or WebMD, or whatever you are searching, and you search about some symptoms that are subjective. Tomorrow you are searching with your data that you generated, which is specific to you. It will make these searches a lot more powerful and specific. It is data-fying medicine, making it available on a democratic basis to all, not just to doctors and the medical community.”
