Last week I asked two friends what they thought about emerging technology in healthcare. One is a second year resident at a well-respected hospital. The other is in the last year of dental school and will soon be off for a residency in pediatric dentistry. Their comments below give me great hope for the future.
Curiously, they both failed to capitalize their sentences. I feel that there is an important insight in that fact, yet I can't quite put my finger on it. But I digress...
About 4 weeks ago, I went for an annual physical and had standard blood work done. I was told to call back in a week, and of course I forgot. Today I had a message that said: "hello, this is Dr. XX's office, please call us back at xxx-xxx-xxxx". That was it – the person didn't identify herself and also didn't say what the call was for. When I dialed the number I was expecting to be told that I owed them money. But actually, the woman on the phone had no idea why she had called me.
