THE CREATIVE DESTRUCTION OF MEDICINE How the Digital Revolution Will Create Better Health Care

Earphones Award Winner

by | Read by Dick Hill

Contemporary Culture • 12.75 hrs. • Unabridged • © 2012

With his mature-sounding voice, Dick Hill creates an appealing performance that conveys wonder and curiosity about this cutting-edge summary of how digital technology will change health care. He’s particularly adept at slowing his pacing and using arresting pauses when a phrase or word deserves keener attention. The resulting sound seems effortless and consistently natural. The author, a geneticist and cardiologist, says that clinical intuition and large-sample research studies will take a backseat to massive assemblages of individual data that show who responds to particular treatments. He thinks this information will shift the emphasis from one-size-fits-all treatment to helping people avoid preventable problems and get more targeted care. Despite the detail and technological emphasis, this is a riveting, well-written overview of where health care is going. T.W.
