Ten Ways Patients Get Better Medical Treatment – WSJ.com

An interesting list, and good mix between the ‘technical’ and the personal:

  1. Doctors Are Adopting a Better Bedside Manner
  2. Heart Attacks are Being Treated Faster
  3. ERs Are Getting Better at Handling Medical Mysteries
  4. You Can Finally See What Your Doctor Is Writing About You
  5. Health Apps Are More Sophisticated
  6. Tests for Colon Cancer Are Less Arduous
  7. Talking of Dying Gets a Little Less Daunting
  8. The Hospital Is Less Likely To Make You Sick
  9. Robots Are Helping Your Surgeon
  10. Vetting a Hospital Gets Easier

The one I would add from my cancer journey is the improvement in anti-nausea meds for chemo and radiation treatment. Can largely be managed now. Still more work with other side effects, however.
