Medicine Goes Online

Newsweek: One part doctor, one part tech innovator, one part salesman: the sum of those parts have made Parkinson the face of a new kind of health care. At his New York City clinic, his team of doctors uses dozens of means of communication—instant messaging, e-mail, texting, etc.—to communicate with their patients and each other. They are working on a platform that could allow doctors across the country to do the same. And they say that by streamlining health-care delivery, partly by refusing to deal with health insurance, they're improving how primary care is delivered, making it more appealing to young doctors and improving the medical system as we know it.

I've been waiting for this.
