Get faster, smarter, nicer data science consultants

Is this the future of medicine (at least in the US)? Jay Parkinson MD mixes the old-time doctor with cyber-tools.

He specialises in 18 – 40 year olds, he can be contacted by phone, text, internet messaging, text or video chat, and only makes house calls. He services a narrow geographic range (Brooklyn and Manhattan). All of the paperwork and even the symptoms he gets from you online, so when you meet it’s the hands on stuff. His fees are on a database, and he’ll help his patients find the cheapest medications and best-value services where he refers them on. It costs $200 per visit (wow!).

It’s certainly a different medical experience than I’ve had (in Australia, UK or France), and I wonder what consultancy experiences we could change so that we use much more of the cyber-capabilities?
