Thomas Goetz: It’s time to redesign medical data

Here’s the video that inspired me to start putting together this blog. It’s Thomas Goetz talking about how much we are missing by not being able to convey important medical information to patients. Wired magazine redesigned a few medical exam reports and made them finally understandable by a human being.

The key question that Thomas asks in this talk is “Why is Wired magazine doing this?!” He is right, isn’t this important enough that somebody with a little more power gets it done? Lots of thinking..
