Consumers take control of their own health diagnostics
A while back I wrote about the host of health diagnostic devices that consumers can buy and the power of Google to provide health information (Doctor Google and Nurse Pharmacy)
WellnessFX is another variant of this trend whereby the medical specialists are involved but with the control for driving the diagnostics switching to the consumer.
As the provision of state health continues to deteriorate the logical thing is for individuals to take control of their health - as much as as they can. This applies as much to older people, probably more so, than any other age group.
I am certain this is going to be a lucrative market. Dick Stroud
