Personal Health Tech Blog is designed to help individuals take greater control of their health and health care, particularly (but not exclusively) through the use of technology. We’ll cover a wide range of technology solutions: products and services that you can buy and use on your own, products and services that enable physicians to follow patients with existing health problems and risks more closely, and things that patients should know about the diagnostic tests, treatments, and implants prescribed by doctors.
Posts will include product overviews, reviews and comparisons, user feedback and tips, new product announcements, and features on companies, organizations, and individuals. From time-to-time, we’ll also present news about scientific research and emerging technologies that could lead to greater patient empowerment.
Technology is not the only source of personal empowerment, however. We’ll also cover topics including evaluating and selecting doctors and health care facilities, alternative ways to pay for health care, and circumventing hospital bureaucracy and physician protocols.
