Eric Dishman: Take health care off the mainframe | Video on TED.com

TED Talks At TEDMED, Eric Dishman makes a bold argument: The US health care system is like computing circa 1959, tethered to big, unwieldy central systems: hospitals, doctors, nursing homes. As our aging population booms, it’s imperative, he says, to create personal, networked, home-based health care for all.

It is also interesting to read a recent article at NEJM about web for patient, providers.  These are totally two different perspectives about how technology can help improve patient care.  Like to hear your comments.
