There's such an amazing flow of gadgets coming out these days like the Zio XT patch and the Scanadu--right in my backyard at Ames.

Is the goal of these devices to put better tools in the hands of the doctors or will we be bypassing the doctors to give diagnostic capabilities directly to patients with them? If they are going to augment the doctors then they need to fit into the infrastructure. I worked with a few hospitals a while back who were struggling to coordinate multiple diagnostic systems that each used wifi. Each of them worked fine on its own, but they did not fit well into the hospital network infrastructure. My point is that automated medical records is the state of the art that many MD's are struggling with right now and these devices are the leading edge of what we are creating. At some point we need to bridge that gap.

While this is happening my doctor is struggling to use the laptop that her medical group gave her and is having me re-enter the same medical record information every time that I come in. In my experience there are a few doctors that are pushing these kinds of advancements and the majority that are just trying to cope. This is not unusual in any user population, but mainstream doctors seem to be particularly resistant to adoption of advanced technology. Is Qualcomm getting much response from the medical community on this?

To say that Andy Weir's The Martian is an exploration of math, Mars, and feces is a slight simplification. I doubt that the author would have any complaints, though.
