A ‘Technology Optimist’s’ Take on the Healthcare System of Tomorrow

“Dr. Algorithm” systems, medical treatments tailor-made for patients and the rise of consumers who are the CEOs of their own health. According to respected investor Vinod Khosla, those are just a few of the developments you can look forward to in the health system of tomorrow. In a (draft) report published this week, Khosla offered up his take on the future of healthcare, which has inspired some additional predictions about how our health system will evolve. On the ground, we’re already seeing the beginnings of Khosla’s predictions reflected in the growing digital health startup ecosystem. And, like him, we believe the future may arrive sooner than many people think!
