Revue de presse

As an introduction for the lay reader to the sophisticated digital technology now being applied to medical care, and as an explanation of the rapidly advancing science of medical genetics and the new revelations from the sequencing of the human genome, Topol's book is a tour de force. --Siddhartha Mukherjee, author of "The Emperor of All Maladies: A Biography of Cancer

""What happens when you combine cellular phone technology with the cellular aberrations in disease? Or create a bridge between the digital revolution with the medical revolution? How will minute biological sensors alter the way we treat lethal illnesses, such as heart attacks or cancer? This marvelous book by Eric Topol, a leading cardiologist, gene hunter and medical thinker, answers not just these questions, but many many more. Topol's analysis draws us to the very frontlines of medicine, and leaves us with a view of a landscape that is both foreign and daunting. He manages to recount this story in simple, lucid language--resulting in an enthralling and important book."
--Atul Gawande, M.D., author of The Checklist Manifesto

Présentation de l'éditeur

What if your cell phone could detect cancer cells circulating in your blood or warn you of an imminent heart attack? Mobile wireless digital devices, including smartphones and tablets with seemingly limitless functionality, have brought about radical changes in our lives, providing hyper-connectivity to social networks and cloud computing. But the digital world has hardly pierced the medical cocoon.

 Until now. Beyond reading email and surfing the Web, we will soon be checking our vital signs on our phone. We can already continuously monitor our heart rhythm, blood glucose levels, and brain waves while we sleep. Miniature ultrasound imaging devices are replacing the icon of medicine—the stethoscope. DNA sequencing, Facebook, and the Watson supercomputer have already saved lives. For the first time we can capture all the relevant data from each individual to enable precision therapy, prevent major side effects of medications, and ultimately to prevent many diseases from ever occurring. And yet many of these digital medical innovations lie unused because of the medical community’s profound resistance to change.
In The Creative Destruction of Medicine, Eric Topol—one of the nation’s top physicians and a leading voice on the digital revolution in medicine—argues that radical innovation and a true democratization of medical care are within reach, but only if we consumers demand it. We can force medicine to undergo its biggest shakeup in history. This book shows us the stakes—and how to win them.

4.0 étoiles sur 5 La médecine de demain ? 16 mai 2012
Par Y. Roche
Format:Relié|Achat vérifié
Livre ouvrant les yeux sur ce que la technologie peut apporter par l'individualisation des soins, par le suivi à distance à travers internet, par les bases de données patients
On découvre que le monde médical américain est aussi peu ouvert aux nouvelles technos que le monde français.
On commence à voir apparaitre des évaluations de soins par les patients analaogues aux évaluations produits type Amazon parfois sous l'égide des assurances santé.
Une grosse partie consacrée aux retombées des avancées de la génétique pas facile à suivre pour le profane.
Est lisible pour un non expert en anglais médical.

Par Yohann
Format:MP3 CD|Achat vérifié
When it comes to the innovation possibilities within our healthcare systems. I was really surprise to read some things inside this book. If you're interested in healthcare, if you're a doctor who wants to see what are the new possibilities out there or if you're simply curious, you should buy this book.

4.0 étoiles sur 5 Informative, but doesn't live up to the potential 28 février 2012
Par Jijnasu Forever - Publié sur Amazon.com
For a book that has pages of endorsements from key authors and influential physicians, this book fails to meet the expectations - particularly in defining remarkably new disruptive ideas. Despite an excellent set-up and problem definition, this book ends up reading like a well-organized collection of articles from magazines such as Wired.

The premise of Topol is a compelling one - the developments and the relative maturity of mobile devices, PCs, Internet, genome sequencing and social media, provides a potential inflection point in the field of medicine. In the initial chapters that borrows heavily from themes established by Clay Shirky (for example, Cognitive Surplus: How Technology Makes Consumers into Collaborators, and those similar to ones defined in Hamlet's BlackBerry: Building a Good Life in the Digital Age and The Third Screen: Marketing to Your Customers in a World Gone Mobile, Topol abstracts 4 key trends (4 C's) that are setting up the stage for the "Ds" - destructive trends. While the ideas themselves are not new, Topol condenses the ideas from various authors to clearly characterize the innovation potential in medicine. Topol also makes some astute observations on the use of guidelines and the limitations of population-based clinical trials. While this first part alone is worth the book, the rest of the book fails to live up to the excellent framing.

The disappointment mostly stems from a lack of new ideas that could do full justice to the tagline of the book - instead of offering new ideas, for the most part, Topol provides an assessment of well-cited relatively new business models (23andme, patient-like me, Hello health, Vscan, etc) - across a variety of themes in physiology, biology, anatomy, and electronic health records. Mixing anecdotes from his own experience, popular literature (science and general news magazines), and academic papers, Topol is able to provide a credible assessment of the cited business models and use them as a context to define some important questions (but often fails to fully address them).

Topol glosses over issues related to who will pay for these services once they are established - this, perhaps is an important oversight in the book - the lack of discussion on how the value captured by either the patient or provider through these technologies be converted to a sustainable business model. Topol also fails to explain how the higher level of IT infrastructure can be justified in terms of the actual health outcomes that can be attributed to those (in fact, Topol himself argues that increased access to information doesn't necessarily empower patients correctly). At times, he gets carried away describing his observations - for example, he wonders if the increasing use of supplements is a "rebellion against conventional medicine". Topol chooses to ignore analyzing other stakeholders such as pharmacies, nutritionists whose roles and business models have significant disruptive potential from the trends he outlines. While the line between "medicine" and "healthcare delivery" are blurring, a sharper focus on either would've tremendously helped a reader.

Despite these 'issues' and a general lack of provocative new ideas, Topol provides an excellent characterization of the potential of disruptive technologies. One wishes that he would have used his unique experiences and reputation to put forward provocative ideas or perhaps build on the themes by an endorser of this book - The Innovator's Prescription: A Disruptive Solution for Health Care. Despite being an informative read, this book is not very likely to inspire a reader familiar with the trends in this field and the author's reputation as a thought leader. For someone new to this field, this is a remarkably comprehensive introduction to the key trends that could impact healthcare/medicine.

5.0 étoiles sur 5 Health Care's Schumpeter Moment 18 mars 2012
Par Kathleen Scarbrough - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format:Format Kindle|Achat vérifié
Dr. Eric Topol's book is an excellent review of what the promise of technology holds for the US Healthcare system. His background as a geneticist and a cardiologist as well as a highly regarded research scientist informs this book with the promise of the future, and it is the near future at that. Not something decades away. The advent of the empowered patient (by technology as close as their cell phone) extends the opportunity and methodology for significant reductions in the cost of health care for us all---without a reduction in quality. For instance, cell phones with a "lab on a chip" enabling individuals to substantially reduce the cost and compliance of monitoring one's blood work for glucose, cholesterol, etc. while empowering the patient to be more aware and in control.

His review of genetics was a little dense, but as readers we must all bear in mind how difficult it is to condense such a complex subject into a chapter of one book providing enough information for the lay person to become excited about the possibilities in front of us without speaking totally over our heads. The promise of pharmacogenomics is here today. Enabling an oncologist to test a cancer tumor for genetic markers that indicate which of several chemotherapy drugs would be most efficacious for a particular patient. The "wrinkle" in the system is that insurance company awareness and subsequent payments are running behind the speeding train of "Star Trek" medicine. I do believe we will as a society work this out.

As a health care professional, I highly recommend this book for nurses, physicians, administrators as well as interested lay people. There are so many cost pressures coming with health care reform, it is easy to get caught up in thinking that quality of care is doomed to decline. This book opened my eyes to the possibilities in front of us today and many hopes in front of us within the next 5 years. It truly lifted my spirits to read it.

Thank you Dr. Topol.

5.0 étoiles sur 5 Doctors beware! 29 janvier 2012
Par Sam Santhosh - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format:Relié|Achat vérifié
Every revolution shows the incumbents in poor light - they look foolish, stubborn and indecisive. Eric Topol shows how breakthrough growth in mobile phones, wireless technologies and genomics, and their convergence is revolutionizing Medicine and Healthcare but the current 'high priests' whether it is doctors or the bureaucracy dont seem to be getting it. Nevertheless the flow seems to be irreversible as informed consumers empower themselves and push for new solutions that will provide better care, cheaper and more effective medicines, and democratize the healthcare system.

Topols' stories about the shortcomings on the current system are scary and he is very tough on the members of his profession. Other players in the ecosystem like the Pharma companies also do not escape his sharp criticism. He will not be making many friends with this book - however it will be tremendously useful to the readers in multiple ways - as an individual on how to plan for your healthcare, as a student on planning your career, as an investor or entrepreneur for understanding opportunities that would create revolutionary wealth!. For people in the healthcare profession this should be a wake up call.

I would urge all to read this book.

5.0 étoiles sur 5 Awesome Book On the Future Overhaul of Medicine 8 mars 2012
Par Doc Rog - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format:Relié|Achat vérifié
Dr. Eric Topol is one of the most famous and accomplished Cardiologists in the world. He does an amazing job at simplifying the complex field of genetics to give us insight on the future of medicine. He stresses the point that only a small percentage of patients may derive significant measurable benefit from a medicine over a 5 to 10 year period. It is likely one's genetic makeup that determines whether a medicine may led to benefit or harm. This book should be required reading for all of us in the field of medicine. It is clearly written with great stories. What a fabulous book by a legendary scientist.

2.0 étoiles sur 5 Dry Literature Review - Not a Narrative 14 janvier 2012
Par D. W. Miller, Jr. - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format:Format Kindle|Achat vérifié
This book was highly recommended to me by a physician colleague and I eagerly downloaded it to my Kindle and began reading. I was greatly disappointed.

With all due respect to the author, a well-known, highly-respected, and apparently very well-connected physician, this book comes across as a dry, comprehensive academic literature review with almost every sentence referenced and descriptive of some study or article from a short list of leading periodicals/newspapers/magazines. It seems the author just did a literature search on a set of topics, summarized each reference in a sentence or two, organized the snippets, and then strung them together into a book. Apparently, the author only reads The Economist, The Wall Street Journal, The New York Times, Science, and Wired. Without all the descriptive bloat specifying each study, where it came from, where it was published, how many participants, ad nauseum, the book would be half as long (and a third of the book is notes/references).

Additionally, where there is narrative in the book, most of the time it had very little to do with the title of the book. The explanation of genetic decoding went on and on and was barely comprehensible with all the specific jargon of the science. The author wanted to illuminate readers about important topics (e.g. treating a population rather than an individual) but it seemed off-topic with this title (and was on-topic in Your Medical Mind by Groopman which addressed that issue well).

It also seemed to me that the author promoted ventures where he played an inside role in the venture or at least was a beta-tester. At times, his description of some ventures (e.g. the hand-held cardiac ultrasound device) seemed promotional.

So, I was looking for more narrative to the point of the title, and less academic referencing and dryness as if this were a published literature review in some peer-reviewed medical journal.
