I rolled out of bed this morning, turned on Twitter and found this headline from The Guardian, Technology could redefine the doctor-patient relationship.
Let’s be clear: Technology, by definition, disrupts what we do and how we do it. It changes relationships. It’s not a maybe or a might or a could. And this isn’t new. Look at the stethoscope. Around 1998 patients first began to disrupt their relationship with me using information technology.
It’s no longer news that technology changes things with doctors and patients. Silly mainstream media.
