Doctors 2.0 and You: Key Messages in the “From Doctor to Futurist” Keynote


Doctors 2.0 and You was an amazing event again! It collects all the experts, doctors, e-patients, pharma companies and start-ups in this area.

I presented on the first day and gave the closing keynote on the second day entitled “From Doctor to Futurist”. Some of my key points:

  • The future of healthcare will be based on patients who will be able to measure anything about themselves from blood count to ECG and even genomic data.
  • We must prepare students and medical professionals for this digital world. This is why I launched a university course, an e-learning platform and wrote a book.
  • My role as a medical futurist is to close the gap between e-patients and their not that web-savvy doctors; as well as between digital technologies and everyday medicine.
  • Every medical student in the world must read e-Patient Dave’s book!





See you next year in…
