Summary

One of America's top doctors reveals how AI will empower physicians and revolutionize patient care

Medicine has become inhuman, to disastrous effect. The doctor-patient relationship - the heart of medicine - is broken: doctors are too distracted and overwhelmed to truly connect with their patients, and medical errors and misdiagnoses abound. In Deep Medicine, leading physician Eric Topol reveals how artificial intelligence can help. AI has the potential to transform everything doctors do, from notetaking and medical scans to diagnosis and treatment, greatly cutting down the cost of medicine and reducing human mortality. By freeing physicians from the tasks that interfere with human connection, AI will create space for the real healing that takes place between a doctor who can listen and a patient who needs to be heard. 

Innovative, provocative, and hopeful, Deep Medicine shows us how the awesome power of AI can make medicine better, for all the humans involved.

Some interesting ideas

Some interesting ideas but the author’s presentation of data science and AI could have been deeper and more well rounded.

Homework well done

Great summary and I sights into medicine’s challenges and opportunities for AI. Though having opinion based conclusions and biases at times, the author stays true to a reflective pro and con review throughout. Great literature even for people spending most of their time with AI in medicine already.

Should be required reading for all premed students

Recommend this to anyone in clinical medicine. I am not sure I am fully on board with AI bring back the human side of medicine. I think to bring back the human side of medicine, we need to focus on quality and not quantity aka $$$

loved it!

A very thought provoking book. Our clinic has been quite involved with Telemedicine for the past 5 years and this book helped us have a more clear view of AI direction.

Better selfcare thru data, AI, and empathetic clinicians

Patients must have the the human right to own their health data, to learn from other patient care treatments, and to make shared decisions with their non-burned out clinicians and caregivers.
Topol is 10 years ahead of most clinicians in understanding where digitally-augmented healthcare is going...and he is putting the patient in the driver’s seat.
A great, fast read...that suggests a hopeful future for health and healthcare in the US and around the globe.

Thorough exploration of deep learning in medicine

The author explores many detailed and current examples of how medicine is practiced now, and has been practiced in the past, and how the advent of AI has the potential to change everything.

This is not a book about how AI fixes everything, nor is it a book of negativity or techno-phobia. The treatment of the subject is insightful, balanced, and thoughtful.

a comprehensive review

it seemed like a huge review article of all things currently possible with AI in medicine and the speculative future possibilities. just didn't feel it had the oomph factor for such an important topic. nevertheless, an important read if you want to stay updated.

Wonderfully written and authoritative book on AI in medicine

Dr Topol has written a fantastic book. He artfully covers the topics of artificial intelligence, new healthcare technologies and genomics at a level that is understandable for general readers and scientifically accurate and up to date for those working in the field. He shares a vision of the future of AI in medicine that is inspirational and achievable. The narrator, Graham Winston, is great to listen to compared to most.
