The Future Competition in Healthcare is Coming Fast

Posted in Health Care, Healthcare Futurist

Today, a colonoscopy can cost anywhere between $500 and $4000 within a single zipcode; and even though telepresence is extraordinarily fast, cheap and widespread, it is still difficult to get immediate access to a physician. Both are unacceptable and both problems, thankfully, are about to be resolved. Castlight Health recently received $100 million in funding…


Healthcare Keynote Speakers: Jack Uldrich & Eric Topol

Posted in Futurist, Genomics, Health Care, Healthcare Futurist

Engaging, entertaining, energetic and enlightening healthcare keynote speakers are difficult to find. As my own speaking schedule has expanded, I have found myself in the unpleasant position of having to turn away a number of speaking engagements. As a consequence, I’m frequently asked for other speakers I’d recommend. One person I now strongly recommend is…


Doctor: Ask a New Question

Posted in Ask a New Question, Health Care

Next week, I’ll be traveling to St. George, Utah to address the Utah Hospital Association on Why the Future of Healthcare Will Require Unlearning. One important aspect of unlearning is the embracing the art of asking a new question. To this end, did you know health care is already being revolutionized by a simple question:…



Coming Soon: The $10 Genome

Posted in Future, Futurist, Genomics, Health Care, Healthcare Futurist

Back in 2008, I encouraged experts in the health care, pharmaceutical and insurance industries to “jump the curve” and begin contemplating the consequences of being able to sequence the human genome for $1000. This future appears likely to arrive by the end of 2012 — a year earlier than I originally estimated. Alas, the future…

Posted in Computer/Semiconductor, Futurist, Health Care, Healthcare Futurist, Video

Last year, I published my top ten trends in health care. Number Five on the list was “artificial intelligence.” Specifically, I addressed the ability of IBM’s “Watson” supercomputer to revolutionize diagnosis. Well, the folks at Memorial Sloan-Kettering have now hired Watson. If you’re in the healthcare industry, I can’t encourage you strongly enough to watch…

The Disappearing Clouds

Posted in CIO, Computer/Semiconductor, Finance, Health Care

I’m in Hong Kong today to deliver the opening keynote presentation at SingTel’s 2012 CIO Days. One message I intend to deliver is that of the “disappearing word.” To better understand the future, I frequently advise my audiences to beware of descriptor phrases that will fade away in time. For example, we no longer say…


The Future of Healthcare Will Be Simulated

Posted in Future, Futurist, Health Care, Healthcare Futurist

According to a new study, surgeons performing knee surgery don’t become proficient at their trade until after they have performed 150 operations. This is understandable in the sense that “practice makes perfect.” It’s bad news, however, for the first 150 patients who have the misfortune of being the “practice” for the new surgeon. One solution…
