Will the Internet and the Boomers Really Revolutionize the Traditional Healthcare Model?

What results can we expect from this paradigm shift? According to Cravit, “Health care will become increasingly privatized, not as a result of philosophical changes to top-down policy, but as a result of the independent actions of millions of affluent, mobile, demanding individuals who will not sit still for slow, costly and inflexible solutions when their own health and well-being is concerned.” But what about those who are not affluent and mobile? What will this mean for them? Will it improve their lot, or will they be left out?

We at CARP want to engage you in a debate and would be interested in hearing your feedback. How do you see the future of health care, how do you interact with your doctor and are you inclined towards self-management? Which outcomes do you foresee and which outcomes do you hope for? Write to us at [email protected] and we will be happy to publish a selection of your letters.
