Eric Topol’s keynote at HIMSS13, a massive health IT event, was a tsunami of ideas and visions for the future of health care. I wasn’t there, so I salvaged what washed up on my shore as a Storify.
Why? Because I’m an internet geologist. I look for early warning signs of possible futures and Topol was reeling them out, one after the other. He described the possible trajectory of trends we are tracking every day at the Pew Research Center: mobile, social, DIY health. It’s not reality for everyone, but it’s reality for some — and that’s exactly what we look for when we’re mapping our research agenda. What’s now and what’s next.
If you were there, what was the most surprising or exciting thing he mentioned? If you’re just tuning in and seeing the Storify, what jumps out at you as the most or least likely trend?
