From a perspective of (Eric)

preneur and given resources

- a call to action to patients / society

- also autobiographical and venting :)

pissing people off

Eric's Prescription to
         Medicine:


Needs to be Schumpeted

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Joseph_Schumpeter
By Us Patients
Creative Destruction

Incessantly revolutionizes the economic
structure from within, incessantly destroying
the old one, incessantly creating a new one.
Radically Transformed



digital information has revolutionized our
world, but not our health until now
So that we refocus on :
 Preserving Our Health
Digitizing the world,
 Digitizing the Body
Assembling Relevant Data,
    Making Actionable
       suggestions
We Have the Technical
      Foundation
Think of the SmartPhone
Medical Smartphone ie
       Tricorder
with massive number of
     other sensors
Data:

previous:
1 Billion gigabytes by 2003

now:
x trillion gigabytes per year
35 trillion gigabytes per year

mostly from sensors
Current Status and Health Reform
Reform: mainly operational, not better health

But currently needed because there is no
alignment for innovation in health

Overuse and Wrong use, No prevention
Patients are organizing:
- Are able to get data

- Determine Treatment

- can be a problem.

- resisted by the industry
Potential Problems:

Treating the virtual vs. real patient

Loss of interaction and healing touch

Problems with innovative products

Data Deluge
Actionables
Some of the pportunities discussed

Moving away from Population Medicine to
person Unique Treatments

Continuous tracking of all body functions and
vital signs

Ability to make analysis: Being able to predict
heart attacks, cancer ie check engine light
Point of the book:

Make consumers aware of the Creative
Destruction about to happen

And prepare to make the right trade offs as
Medicine get’s Schumpeted.

A CALL TO ACTION!
Eric is unique
Eric has great funding

Most Doctors do not get this chance

InterWest Institute - Test tube for creative
destruction
Question to Audience:
How do we find and fund
 people like Eric, whom
 are not yet discovered?
