This is a great book about change, and how tiny things can lead to huge shifts in healthcare. Penn Medicine's health system went from the worst system, when it came to prescribing #generic #drugs, to the best. Why? Due to a health IT update and laziness #themedicalfuturist      source

Just finished 'The Kingdom' by @JessRothenberg This book’s genius is about the viewpoint: it’s told through a robot’s perspective. Essentially, for me this story was about how Ava, the robot developed a sense of consciousness.      source

There are sci-fi writers who don’t wish to create a blast in their stories or save everyone. Rather, they show a world in its details, one that’s still ahead of us. This is what makes @gregeganSF a genius. I’ve just finished his #book #Instantiation, which I’d highly recommend!      source
