How is Big Data Changing Health?

Digital systems make it possible to identify patterns and trends in global and domestic health that foster better clinical decision-making and ultimately improve outcomes. Simply put: more biological data adds up to more diagnostic and treatment information. To use these effectively, we need to scale up our capacity to aggregate data and build predictive models that allow for inclusive, custom-tai...

Deep Dive: Rebuilding the Patient Experience

Patient-centered care is defined by the National Academy of Medicine as “providing care that respects and responds to individual patient preferences, needs and values, and ensures that patient values guide all clinical decisions.” Designed to place patients at the heart of the system, the approach is built around well-coordinated, quality care, including physical comfort and emotional support, and...

Reinventing the Pediatrician Visit

Brain development during a child’s first five years forms the basis for lifelong learning and physical health, making enriched environments critical to success. Hospitals and clinics represent an untapped opportunity to contribute in this pivotal period.

Failure Is Not an Option: When Patients Become Advocates

A devastating diagnosis is enough to make anyone despair, but some hardy individuals respond by propelling themselves into action. While many diseases have support groups for exchanging information and referrals, some have also spawned patient-led movements that focus primarily on finding treatments and cures. Determined patients are getting clinical studies funded, using data platforms to share m...

Rebuilding Patient Trust

Almost two-thirds of Americans don’t trust the medical system, according to a recent Gallup poll. The United States also ranked toward the bottom among survey respondents who agreed that “all things considered, doctors [in your country] can be trusted.” Rapid shifts in scientific knowledge, surprise billing, and broader suspicion of societal institutions have eroded consumer confidence, underminin...

The Digital Revolution: Putting Patients in Control

When a consumer turns over a food package, a well-designed label provides some core facts about the ingredients inside. In a car lot, every vehicle posts key data in the window, allowing for fast and easy comparisons. No such thing exists in health care to simplify decision-making. Indeed, the explosion of medical knowledge, the increasing specialization of the field, and the expanding volume of a...

Reaching Rural Populations

In thinly populated regions that stretch over vast territories, primary care is often a long journey from home and specialty services may be completely out of reach. Access to care in some isolated communities may be further complicated by cultural or language barriers, limited transportation networks, and poverty. But advocates working in the rural space are talking solutions, not problems – loca...

Deep Medicine: How Artificial Intelligence Can Make Health Care Human Again

In his new book, Deep Medicine, Eric Topol – cardiologist, geneticist, digital medicine researcher – claims that artificial intelligence can put the humanity back into medicine. By freeing physicians from rote tasks, such as taking notes and performing medical scans, AI creates space for the real healing that occurs between a doctor who listens and a patient who needs to be heard. The counterintui...
