Doctor’s Offices on Their Death Bed
“One of my tricks for generating startup ideas is to imagine the ways in which we'll seem backward to future generations. And I'm pretty sure that to people 50 or 100 years in the future, it will seem barbaric that people in our era waited till they had symptoms to be diagnosed with conditions like heart disease and cancer,” said Paul Graham, Y Combinator. Technology and policy are colliding to transform the patient experience. New devices are delivering continuous streams of health data to patients, who in turn are expecting physicians to engage with them via modern communication channels. Meanwhile, bundled payments and Accountable Care Organizations are changing incentives for doctors and payers, leading savvy physician-entrepreneurs to invent new patient-provider-payer models. As this explosion occurs will doctor’s offices soon be a legacy artifact of non-competitive providers? Join the debate with the innovators driving change from both the patient and physician perspective!
