One of my favorite healthcare IT journalists is Christina Farr. She’s skipped around a few publications over the years, but she’s currently writing for CNBC about large tech companies like (Apple, Alphabet(Google), etc) that are getting into the healthcare and biotech world. Plus, she covers a lot of healthcare IT startup companies.

Christina Farr recently gave a TEDx talk at TEDx Oslo where she shared her perspective on the move from a doctor-dominated healthcare model to an empowered patient model where patient and doctor work together to find the best care solution together.

If you care about patients, take 12 minutes to listen to Christina’s TEDx talk embedded below and think about what her message means for you. It’s a good one.
