Medicine 2.0: A Digital You

Dr. Eric Topol was a guest on KUOW/NPR this morning to discuss his new book "The Creative Destruction of Medicine" which talks about how the digital revolution can dramatically change healthcare and the practice of medicine. When we talk about P4 Medicine, we encourage people to understand – and embrace – the technology that's already available and the promise of a future when doctors will know exact data about your health and be able to prescribe an exact treatment.
