Google and algorithms........control your doctor now

    GOOGLE and the algorithm playbook........

    Create illness and solutions for sickness and you win profits.

    We got manipulated, my fellow doctors. We screwed ourselves. From Google to Apple to 23andMe, many major tech companies are getting into the health research space. Where are the physicians? We have our patient's best interest in mind and we should be the gatekeepers of research as a care ancillary at the point of care, implemented to benefit our patients well being and improve health outcomes.

    This feels like an algorithm data grab by google not an attempt to solve complex healthcare problems. Hubris and funding without contextual knowledge are a dangerous combination. Why do we keep waiting to get invited to this party when we should be the ones hosting it and driving the discussion?

    Big tech has done a lousy job of solving healthcare problems because they miss the fundamental point you just made about the doctor-patient relationship. The perspectives are different when you've actually cared for patients not just given a TED talk about "transforming healthcare.

    What about university degrees, in the middle of Africa, using the internet only?
    Without big buildings and their professors which are communist agents with little red books.

    Another way to look at it is predicting health through pattern identification.
