Uber’ization of healthcare – dream or nightmare?

Tele-care is becoming a mainstay of healthcare practice. As such, new models of care provision become available and popular, including just-in-time meeting with a health practitioner anywhere and anytime, as well as semi-automatic care models driven by algorithms.
