Thank you Adam for sharing this clip! I hadn’t seen it. I’m big into the ‘quantified-self’ movement and believe that empowering patients with data and telecommunications technologies will be a significant way that healthcare improves and evolves in the near future. I currently track my INR, blood pressure, heart rate, and weight and feel that being able to share this information with my health-care providers helps me be pro-active in monitoring my health conditions and can help with my health safety and care.

Thank you Adam for the medical smartphone video, so amazing! I have a bicupsid aorta along with 4 other family members and I am also an emergency room RN here in New Orleans. I sent to my father who is a pediatrician also! I would love to help revolutionize healthcare with this smartphone technology as a patient and an RN! Keep up your awesome work educating us!
