Data and medicine … A revolution in health care is coming – The Economist

Data and medicine … A revolution in health care is coming

Welcome to Doctor You

NO WONDER they are called “patients”. When people enter the health-care systems of rich countries today, they know what they will get: prodding doctors, endless tests, baffling jargon, rising costs and, above all, long waits. Some stoicism will always be needed, because health care is complex and diligence matters. But frustration is boiling over.
