This video compilation of expert perspectives describes a future that relies largely on technology to address expected doctor shortages as the population grows, ages, and lives longer. It’s from PSFK Labs’s latest Health Trends Report, which rounds up 13 areas of innovation and groups them into four categories.
- Nudging and encouraging people to make healthier lifestyle choices
- Empowering people to gather advice and self-diagnose before ever going to a doctor
- Distributing care among doctors with a cloud-based “commons” that allows them to share research and advice
- Augmenting care with wearable, embed-able, and prosthetic monitors and devices
