Publisher's Summary

One of America's top doctors reveals how AI will empower physicians and revolutionize patient care

Medicine has become inhuman, to disastrous effect. The doctor-patient relationship - the heart of medicine - is broken: doctors are too distracted and overwhelmed to truly connect with their patients, and medical errors and misdiagnoses abound. In Deep Medicine, leading physician Eric Topol reveals how artificial intelligence can help. AI has the potential to transform everything doctors do, from notetaking and medical scans to diagnosis and treatment, greatly cutting down the cost of medicine and reducing human mortality. By freeing physicians from the tasks that interfere with human connection, AI will create space for the real healing that takes place between a doctor who can listen and a patient who needs to be heard. 

Innovative, provocative, and hopeful, Deep Medicine shows us how the awesome power of AI can make medicine better, for all the humans involved.

Excellent Overview - Provocative Thesis

Dr. Topol Does an excellent job at providing a comprehensive overview of many of the applications have artificial intelligence in medicine. He makes an inspiring call to action to physicians to be advocates for their profession and for their patients and to fight for more time with their patients and to make medicine more human.

The content is very accessible. I would recommend this book to anyone in the healthcare space.

Better selfcare thru data, AI, and empathetic clinicians

Patients must have the the human right to own their health data, to learn from other patient care treatments, and to make shared decisions with their non-burned out clinicians and caregivers.
Topol is 10 years ahead of most clinicians in understanding where digitally-augmented healthcare is going...and he is putting the patient in the driver’s seat.
A great, fast read...that suggests a hopeful future for health and healthcare in the US and around the globe.
