Welcome to Invent Health (#inventhealth), a quarterly twilight salon-styled tech talk & mixer produced by Vator, HP, & UCSF Health Hub where valuable lessons & insights are shared by investors, tech pioneers & adopters. Invent Health is designed to take a 360-degree view of one particular topic.
In this case, the topic is Reinventing the doctor. Back in 2012, iconic VC Vinod Khosla said that 80 percent of doctors would be replaced. What he meant was that some of their jobs would be replaced by robots & machines. Indeed, in this do-it-yourself-information-accessible world, it's obvious people are relying less on advice from their doctors & more on self-diagnosis. And that information they're requesting is also providing input into some data-gathering software (Google, Alexa, future robot nurse) that's knowing a ton about people's medical history.
Increasingly, the database is the new doctor & nurses, assistants, lab technicians, coaches & others are there to execute the protocols formulated by Dr. Database in the sky.
