Compendium of Work

Over the past several months I have been exploring and writing about the intersection of advanced technology and medicine, as well as the effects of regulation on those fields. I am interested in how technology can merge with medicine to democratize medical decision making, empower patients to participate in the treatment process, and promote better health outcomes for more patients at lower and lower costs.

For my own future reference, and for the benefit of my readers, I am writing this post as an ongoing catalog of my work on these topics. What follows is a topically arranged compendium of blog posts and op-eds that I have written relating to my main passion of technology and medicine. Enjoy!

To the reader: if you ever happen upon stories related to the topics you see below and you believe I would be interested in them, I invite you to share them with me. I would love to hear from you! I am sure you will catch things that I have missed and that would be valuable for me to know and to write about. Find me on Twitter @jtreimschisel or comment on my posts here at Medium. Thanks!
