I saw this tweet and it illustrated the shift to technology that’s happening in healthcare really well. It even has a picture that’s definitely worth 1000 words.

I’m sure this idea horrifies many doctors. However, Dr. Goh is absolutely right that power management and batter tech do need to catch up with the rest of technology. From many of the technologies I’ve seen in that space, I think we’re close to getting there. Mobile health definitely won’t reach its potential without some advancements in battery tech.
