Nancy Fabozzi, principal analyst for connected health at research firm Frost & Sullivan, noted in a video interview with MedCity News that 2016 might be the year of “patient enragement” about soaring drug prices and insurance premiums.

Further out, she says,“Technology will reshape the medical profession, in many cases, replacing physicians for routine care,”  as  she looks at what the “electronic doctor” might look like in a decade or two.

She says that an “electronic doctor”  about the size of a first-aid kit could fairly soon become a staple in American homes.  It will have  biometric monitoring, diagnostic and other digital health technologies, and feed data to a cloud-based medical record, boosted by artificial intelligence.
