The idea to facilitate the exchange between tech, "social" media, medicine and capital is probably good.

It makes you wonder, though, about the achievable utility, when even today skin doctors still do not draw a connection from a patient's skin problems to diabetes, psychiatrists from obesity or a even a tooth problem to a patient's mental state, or physicians from obesity being cause as well as a symptom of another physical/mental malfunction.

Hope that we learn not only to run and explore the horizontal, but also the vertical and depth dimension etc. of a multi dimensional problem. 

For that, models of the complete human system will need to be devised, applied, tested & questioned and continuously improved in the context described in the article, and then we can put all of that information into a really enlightening, concrete and finally healing whole.

My brain feels scrambled just thinking about the questions here. I'll just wait for the answers and learn my way from there backwards! Haha!
