Robert Goode Current Health Topics and Trends in Medicine Leave a comment   , ,

Everything in society is becoming digitized including healthcare. Significant breakthroughs in medicine continue to occur regularly which is great for our patients and exciting for us as clinicians. With continued forward momentum, medicine is becoming increasingly high tech with digital devices starting to play a major role in every day medical care. Digital medicine will be commonplace in the years to come and eventually the standard of care. Here is an article from last summer that discusses digital medicine and what we can expect in the future. Some of the products we are already using such as “Smart Wearables” (Fitbit) and “Health Apps” on our smart phones. At the bottom of the first article is a graph that shows the expected medical advances in the next 5, 10, and 15 years. I am excited as we continue to move toward highly personalized medicine. Stay tuned as more pioneering discoveries will surely continue to unfold.
