Last Doctor Standing
Technological requirements are spilling over into the healthcare sector changing the physician's role and relationship to the patient. However it is possible to re-establish the good old small-town doctors on new terms.
In this book, we make the case that we need to use technological advancements in the right way. Investigation, diagnosis and treatment can be handled by all the groundbreaking technologies from the digital age. while maintaining the doctor's human experience and professional intuition. Patients must be able to monitor themself to a greater extent and take co-responsibility with the help of doctors, that is, doctors who can not only be consulted at medical centers, but also digitally. In other words, we must free up the doctor's time to what is important, namely: patients, research and treatment - especially in the case of virus outbreaks and chaos creating pandemics.
