The Digital Doctor

book cover image: the digital doctor

Technology has now invaded the health care profession.  From patient charts to hospital procedures with the billions of dollars in federal incentives we now  live in the age of digital medical care.  Robert Wachter's new book The digital doctor: hope, hype, and harm at the dawn of medicine's computer age shows how technology is changing care at the bedside. With clarity, insight and humour he questions whether government intervention has been useful or destructive.  A great read with some great insights into what has changed and what yet will be coming down the road.  Wachter does not disappoint in his ability to present the technological changes in the health field with clarity and readability.
