How are we going to be able to afford to keep us healthy going forward? How do we keep insurance companies and the government from running amok with our data and our rights? How are we going to be able to deal with the growing population of seniors and a growing appetite/need for medical care?
Today I looked at an online lecture slideshow presented by Chris Hogg (Citizen Medicine – Thoughts On The Future Of Health Care) at Standford University in February of this year. He is a writer who posts at Quantified Self on occasion. There is an entire industry made up of this kind of guy who measure and study all elements of their lives. Every once in a while that kind of study makes sense. Today it made sense.
If you are interested in the benefits of self measuring and tracking of your health related data, this is a slideshow you ought to see. Hogg isn’t presenting all of the answers for us. But his ideas on tracking your own health make a ton of sense.
