iPhone 6: One-Third Of Doctors Might Buy It By Thanksgiving

Apple’s iPhone 6, which went on pre-order at 12:01 a.m. PST on Friday, is big. It’s bulky. It’s loaded with new health and fitness apps.

And that might make it perfect for doctors — who are notorious Apple iPhone fans to begin with.

“Doctors love their iPhones,” says Dr. Nate Gross, the co-founder of Doximity. (Doximity’s essentially a LinkedIn for doctors.) “We’ve seen them take screenshots of their favorite iPhone apps, like medical calculators, to share and compare.”

As consumers, we are clearly developing an appetite for personalized health monitoring, we just need to make sure that as an industry, we capture the right ingredients and offer the finest solutions to our customers.

If you’ve never watched it, the Food Network’s hit show Chopped is a cooking competition where four chefs are presented with a basket of mystery ingredients that they must incorporate into a themed dish, say Thanksgiving breakfast for instance, within a certain allotted time.  After each course, the chefs present their culinary creations to the panel of judges and face “the dreaded chopping block,” where they are evaluated on use of ingredients, cleverness, and taste.

The show is interesting, but what I find most fascinating is watching the responsiveness and agility of the chefs as they conceptualize their dishes.  They are given disparate flavors which they are asked to compose into a delicious meal.  Translating seemingly hodgepodge items into a meaningful and palatable format is not unlike the challenge we face in the health IT industry.  There is no shortage of health data, but the question is: how do we extract the most important and valuable information and make it prominent so it is at our physicians’ fingertips and driving more informed clinical decisions – whether it is the latest lab result, X-Ray, or consulting physician note?
