A great interview by McKinsey & Co with Google's Eric Schmidt! Google’s executive chairman shares his strategies on hiring, running meetings, designing “mobile first” business models, and addressing joblessness and education reform. On page 5, Mr. Schmidt gives his thoughts on healthcare and how everything should be simplified when we see a doctor and recommends storing our healthcare in a USB dongle or a Personal Health Record (PHR).
Malaysia Healthcare patients have been using a portable Personal Health Record (PHR) called the iPHER for a number of years that carries all their PHI which includes, medications, lab tests, diagnosis, immunizations, alternative procedures, digital images, dental records, ophthalmic care (lens and contact prescriptions) and DNA any where in the world with no need to access the Internet to view the information. Malaysia Healthcare currently uses this PHR to reduce medical errors and create continuity of care for their medical tourists.
Our thanks goes to Mr. Schmidt and Google for finding new ways to simplify our visit to our healthcare providers!
