Twenty-Two Trends Shaping the Future of Medicine: The List
My upcoming book, The Guide to the Future of Medicine, will become available on Amazon.com in black&white paperback, colored paperback and Kindle formats in a few days, therefore I thought I would share an excerpt of the table of contents revealing what trends are featured and described in details through stories and a lot of pictures in the book.
Through these, I try to prove that we can use more and more disruptive technologies in medicine while successfully keeping the human touch.
Please feel free to comment on these trends here or by using the #medicalfuture hashtag on Twitter.
