Web 2.0 and change in medicine
Thoughtful comments here, but it seems most address internet
replication of conventional models of information uptake in healthcare,
rather than innovative applications of technology to health improvement.
Does anyone really believe that faster & easier access to
narrative content on illness/injury conditions represents as large a
potential change in the way health care is practiced as do applications
which improve more direct capture of diagnostic & condition
information, systematic patient monitoring, etc?
