THE PATIENT WILL SEE YOU NOW: The Future of Medicine Is in Your Hands

by Eric Topol

A visionary physician predicts a technology-driven, patient-centered revolution in health care.

In this work about the changes afoot in the world of medical care, Topol demonstrates the combination of intelligence and ambition that is apparent in his successful medical career: He’s a top cardiologist, professor of genomics, director of Scripps Translational Science Institute and founder of the world’s first cardiovascular gene bank at the Cleveland Clinic. Not content to simply critique the current system, the author strides optimistically into the future of health care … Most will come away impressed with the body of knowledge Topol has collected here and, if they’re not convinced that our health care fortunes are poised to change, they’re at least hopeful that we are moving in the right direction.

An expertly detailed, precisely documented exploration of the “power of information and individualization” in health care.
