surgeons were given detailed diagnoses
& asked if patients should get surgery …
half said yes … the other half said no …
when asked again two years later,
40% of the docs gave a different answer
14
eddy, et al., jama
there is good reason
to challenge the assumption
that every individual practitioner's decision
is necessarily correct
15
eddy, et al., jama
would
a hospital cure you
in half the time…
…if it meant
cutting their business in half?
16
the folly of experts: tetlock study
hundreds of “experts” …
28,000+ forecasts over 20+ years
results: “experts” are poorer
forecasters than
dart-throwing monkeys

entrepreneurs will ask
the naïve questions that uncover
hidden assumptions…
…and move us to
the grey zone of “speculations”

in the future,
patients will have the data & analysis to
become the CEO of your own health

rate for acute care encounters

machines are better at integrative medicine…
…across “all symptoms”, demeanor, patient history,
phone activity, 1000s of data points, genomics,
population management guidelines, …
…and machines won’t have to win
every red state and blue state…
…they’ll just be better overall
23
the “human” element of care can be
provided by the most “humane” humans
(and MDs can be humane)
24
the transition will start with
“toddler MDs” and digital first-aid kits

internal medicine, …
27
healthcare service stations
&
digital first aid kits
28
...and your innovation here (call us)
29
innocuous point innovations…
…will become a wave…
…and grow into a tsunami

we’ll start with clumsy point innovations
like alivecor, cellscope, adamant, ginger.io,
neurotrek, consumer physics, jawbone,
misfit, …
…“insighted” by Ayasdi…
…leading us to discover things we never
knew were right in front of us
