The Patient Will See You Now is full of innovative thinking.... This book is full of technical wizardry and intriguing questions about the nature and the future of diagnosing, monitoring and healing. --Perri Klass, Washington Post
Topol expertly builds upon his earlier path-finding work and explores how smartphone adoption, big data, new digital monitors of medically relevant information streams, ubiquitous computing, and larger networks are all combining to revolutionize health care far beyond what most now expect with the exciting promise of lower costs and higher quality simultaneously. Coming from a world-class physician with a unique perspective on the rapidly changing nature of medicine, Topol's prescription for patient empowerment is a must read. --Al Gore, former Vice President of the United States
Eric Topol has written a must-read manifesto for patients who feel helpless. Filled with knowledge and engaging stories, this book shows how you can harness technology to be the master of your medical care or at least, a better partner for your doctor.

The terms professional and patient remain loaded with assumptions and I seek a better way to articulate the relationship. Eric Topol provides the insights and inspiration to help. This book sets in motion the change in thinking and approach much needed to inform future model of health care.
The book contains a wealth of evidenced based data and is delivered by one the 10 most cited researchers in medicine. Eric certainly knows the healthcare environment -- having been rated the number 1 "Most Influential Physician Executive in the United States", acting as Editor-in-Chief at Medscape and acting as director of the flagship NIH-supported Scripps Translational Science Institute.
This book is a must-read for anyone interested in understanding the future of medicine.
