Digitizing Health

Have you been to the hospital recently? They want to digitize your health. They want to make your history searchable and easily shareable. Even Apple wants you to create a medical ID.

Converting your health into an app saves countless hours of paperwork. It can even save lives, crawling back into your history, and your family’s history, to prevent or slow down illnesses. But an abundance of health data can also sensationalize the facts.

Doctors are already handing out Ritalin like candy. Imagine all the other medicine they’ll give away to preempt or control made-up illnesses.

Cloud-based health data is big business with huge benefits. But beware doctors selling fictitious bugs.
