Embrace the changes in medicine – not just digitizing everything but also socialize for communities of patients and doctors 

From the beginning of civilization to 2003, the world accumulated 1 billion gigabytes of data. Today, we create 1 trillion gigabytes every year.

We’re so used to digitizing everything — books and movies and periodicals — everything except for our bodies. My idea is to digitize the essence of what makes us tick — our genome and our physiology — thanks to different biosensors which are largely wearable, put right on a band-aid or a wrist or on the sole of a shoe.

But what’s interesting about it was it basically fueled this “Ask your Doctor” movement: a patient-centered, consumer-centered model.
