Dr. Eric Topol writes convincingly about a paradigm for the direction that health care and medicine will take in the immediate future. His vision, that of the digital patient, attempts to link genomics, proteomics, transcriptomics and a series of other so-called – “omics” with the revolution in information technology that, while long in place for communication and entertainment, is only now ramping up in the biomedical fields. The medical community will have to transform itself through radical innovation as it follows in the wake of the digital revolution. This radical transformation is what is meant by creative destruction and Dr. Topol describes both the possibilities and what is actively being destroyed in his book.
