TEDxAcademy - Walter De Brouwer - How to swallow your doctor

This talk discusses health under the prism of evolving and converging technologies, with 'mythical' instruments coming to life and defining the new health market. It'll be right at our homes, with the convenience of our smartphone. Technology will provide us with the power to be in control of our health indicators, have instant results' evaluations and take educated decisions. Technology will enable us to "swallow our doctors" instead of waiting endlessly for 2 minutes of their time, and this new era is coming sooner than we think. We'll be the last generation that know so little about our health. Time "serial entrepeneur", The Sunday Times "collateral thinker", Financial Times "Ubernerd".
