PSA has stated that the many innovations in communication technology, including mobile devices with new sensing, VR, AR, and diagnostic capabilities, will lead to more DIY healthcare, as well as DIY education. There’s huge economic incentives for change built-in to both US Healthcare and US education, because of the size of the market and the presence of obvious, and not so obvious, inefficiencies, and needs.
The initiative, which is in the early planning stages, would be “free from profit-making incentives and constraints.” Jamie Dimon, the chief executive of JPMorgan Chase, said in a statement that the effort could eventually be expanded to benefit all Americans.

“The health care system is complex, and we enter into this challenge open-eyed about the degree of difficulty,” Jeff Bezos, Amazon’s founder and chief executive, said in a statement. “Hard as it might be, reducing health care’s burden on the economy while improving outcomes for employees and their families would be worth the effort.”
Here’s a report showing how healthcare disruption is proceeding, and is a harbinger of big changes on the horizon in how we do healthcare in US. Since many of the supporting technologies are present in both healthcare and education, such as advances in mobile data processing in real-time and in algorithms that allow key information chunks to be derived from masses of server farms…disruption in Healthcare will at minimum reveal was forward for education…and vice versa.
