From Techcrunch.com: Esther Dyson on healthcare: "Don't Fight the System, Erode It!"
"Dyson thinks of healthcare in much broader terms than many people do. There is the current healthcare system with hospitals, doctors, and insurance—that is the intractable part that is hard to change. But then there are all sorts of activities around the periphery that are more in our control, what she calls user-generated healthcare.” Increasingly, technology is making it easier for us to collect personal health and fitness data to help us combat our own vices such as drugs, alcohol, bad food and sitting around. It is user-generated because we create and collect our own health data through personal fitness devices like Fitbit or aself-measurement services like GreenGoose, and can view our personal health dashboards online."
