“We need to apply cognitive psychology, the principles of design, and tighter feedback loops to our own health. Health care needs to have its design Renaissance, where products and services are redesigned to be responsive to human needs and considerate of human frailties.”
That quote is from Aza Raskin’s blog, commenting on why he’s leaving Mozilla to start Massive Health. Very cool and extremely interesting to think about.
I never considered that side of the upcoming healthcare revolution, but it is critical as Aza lists. So layer the design Renaissance on top of medical research democratization, fuel it with the CPUs and all-to-all connectivity of the cloud, and sprinkle in some crowdsourcing and curation, and we have quite a recipe.Google+
