  1. Docs of the Future

    According to Jay Parkinson MD [Future Well], patients of the future will visit a physician’s website; see a Google calendar; choose a time and input their symptoms; and the doc would be alerted by smart phone.

    Then, he or she would make a house call; be paid via Paypal; and the patient be followed-up by email, IM, videochat, or in person.

    Any thoughts?
