Digital medicine, or just medicine

Digital medicine, on its way to being just plain medicine

You may remember at the begining of this century. Everybody was talking about e-business and right now nobody talks about it, because it is just business.The same will happen with digital medicine, it ill be just medicine in the next future. A future that is closer than you may think. And this is what E. topol explains in the editorial of the new open journal, and says_
And finally, quite paradoxically, we hope that npj Digital Medicine is so successful that in the coming years there will no longer be a need for this journal, or any journal specifically focused on digital medicine.
I agree. But meanwhile, somebody should review current syllabus and studies of medicine, to introduce a change in the profession and the scope of practice.
