The author of the book has a deep interest in medical research and has been writing about the future of medicine for years, so we decided to change the title of this article to BMJ column explores the critically acclaimed novel’s take on the future of medicine and ask him what he thinks about it.
The book is a psychological thriller taking us into a future that has become too extreme. It closely follows the life of one of the main characters – Eric Snow, who goes through rough times due to his mental instability.
On a normal day, doctors visit patients at the hospital, diagnose their condition and prescribe them treatment. But what if they could be more efficient? What if the doctors could use their own thoughts to diagnose patients?
The idea of having a doctor’s thoughts is something that is widely accepted in science fiction and modern medicine. Imagine how much time it would take if all doctors had to process every patient’s medical history using only their own thoughts and opinions. This would certainly be inefficient. But even though it seems like science fiction, there are already some very real-world examples of this type of technology around us today.
The BMJ is an international medical journal. It was founded in 1823 and is currently edited by the BMJ Foundation, a charitable trust established in 1907 by Sir David Brewster, the first president of the Royal College of Physicians of Edinburgh.
