How are you? How are you feeling? These used to be straightforward greetings with simple answers. “I’m fine.” I’m doing well.” “I had been feeling ill but am much better now.” Or even “I keep struggling with diet and exercise.”

However, in the age of accountability, our society has become less comfortable with fuzzy statements and prefers to quantify everything possible, irrespective of whether it’s meaningful. The same question today may elicit responses of “My cholesterol is at 265.” “My sugar is at 210.” “BP is 96 over 75.” Or even “I can’t talk right now, I still have 4,000 steps to go.”

Health has moved from describing a state of being to listing a collection of numbers.…

I just finished reading the popular fiction novel Cell by Robin Cook. This medical thriller revolves around George Wilson, a radiology resident who finds people dying suddenly after receiving diagnoses of terminal illnesses including his fiancé and next-door-neighbor. The catch is that all of these people were beta testers for a new mobile app called iDoc. A technology company developed this program to be a personal primary care physician. iDoc can answer all of your health questions, monitor your vital signs, and even give you a dose of insulin through an implantable reservoir.…

I recently saw a subspecialist for a medical procedure.  I had never met this physician before so as he sat down to review what was going on in the monitor in front of him, the first thing he asked me was what I did for a living.  I promptly informed him that I was a bioethics professor at Loyola University Chicago.  This immediately piqued his interest.  He asked me what this entailed, and I told him that I taught graduate and medical students, did ethics consultations, did my own research and writing, gave presentations, etc. …

Happy New Year. The ending of one year and the beginning of another is often a time for reflection, for reviewing the year that has passed and for making plans/predictions for the year to come. 2013 was the first full year of the re-launch of the bioethics.net editor’s blog as well.

Ten bloggers in addition to myself worked for us this year and we are thankful for their contributions: Maurice Bernstein, Arthur Caplan, Jennifer Chevinsky, Nanette Elster, Ellen Fox, Jessica Jerome, David Magnus, Steven Miles, Kayhan Parsi, and Thaddeus Pope.…

Big brother is watching you. And calling you. And selling your medical information to a pharmaceutical corporation.

In the modern age of information as commodity, drugmakers buy database that tell them how much of what drug each doctor prescribes, which patients fill those prescriptions, and whether renewals are filled.
