Andy Kessler's "The End of Medicine : How Silicon Valley (and Naked Mice) Will Reboot Your Doctor"

Endofmedicine Link: Amazon.com: The End of Medicine : How Silicon Valley (and Naked Mice) Will Reboot Your Doctor: Books: Andy Kessler.

Just a quick post about this book. One of the themes in this book is that while it might seem that advancing technology will allow a diagnosis to be made by a machine, patients will still want the personal contact they have with their physicians.

In some cases, keeping clinicians in the background could be desireable as in the case of tele-hospice.

Hmmm...I think he might have wanted to use the term "nude mouse."
