An "Amazon clinic" and a bill that would allow AI to prescribe meds
Saw this coming over the past year or so. On the one hand, I’m so glad I can see right through all the propaganda. On the other hand, it’s very depressing to see how messed up the world really is. For years and years (long before Covid19 crap), I kept seeing everything happening as a symptom of corporations and a few wealthy people having too much power...but I couldn’t get anyone to listen, even though to me, it was so obvious. All we keep doing is endlessly preaching to the choir...the very few folks here on Substack.
Welp, if Amazon or AI can declare themselves fit to doctor ... I can doctor myself. Thanks. :)
I wonder if Dr Robot will prescribe everyone all the vaccines and antidepressants, as often as the companies that manufacture them ‘recommend’.
when i was in high school there was this one big dorky kid who would have been picked on a lot except that he was bigger than most of us. there was this one time when we were sitting around and talking about what we were going to do when we got out: one kid was going to join the air force and rise through the ranks, another kid wanted to be an astronaut, i was going to start a band...the usual.
we got around to the big dorky kid and he somewhat sheepishly announced that he was going to college and major in healthcare management.
we all just looked at him, like, wtf. he explained that he had done some research and it was the highest-paying job there was.
they've got it down to a science now https://www.beckershospitalreview.com/finance/private-equity-is-buying-up-us-healthcare-4-things-to-know.html
Doctors are obsolete when they are relegated to following one central policy, as for covid. Human experience and discretion have been suppressed. Docs should have connected the dots and pushed back. Maybe they will now... As for consumers, who wants robo medicine? My bet: not many. Incredible way to push pharma though. Maybe the robot doctors should just be ATMs that dispense pills.
All of AI reminds me of a date with a zombie at best,
and at worst, having to look after your insane cousin for an
afternoon, and they do not understand the difference
between killing you having a good sandwich.
It is further evidence of the agenda, and I have long noticed a religious adherence to protocols and guidelines by doctors who graduated after about 2000. This has been combined with the promotion of nurse practitioners and the ability of pharmacists to prescribe. I always felt they were not adequately trained to make complex decisions but of late have realized that if doctors are rule bound and not trained to make decisions based on reasoning from the basic sciences, it makes no difference and they can replace doctors with AI. Its almost as if they can weed out/identify the free thinkers with illogical mandates. Australia had a curriculum change with a 4 yr post graduate course where the basic health sciences were not a prerequisite, which is a perfect way to bring in rule based, rather than reason based medicine. Unfortunately doctors trained like this appear to be rule bound and are probably, on average just as controllable as AI, as we have seen in the last 3 years. You combine this with corporatized hospital management and its a perfect storm where you will get the profitable treatment, that is programmed at a level that has no visibility, accountability or for that matter actual expertise. Its then relatively easy for actors with malevolent intent to roll out "Countermeasures" At least the UK health professional stood up against mandates, maybe their education system has not been taken over to the same extent as Australia?
Thank you for sharing, Tessa! 🙂
I dropped pharmaceuticals 4 decades ago when I turned to Chinese medicine... and Ayurvedic never looked back.. 73, I get outside daily, train hard but keep it Fun.. I Stay fit, yoga routine most everyday, eat organic, rock climb 2 to 3 Xs a wk=FUN, ski during season, and take supplements as needed.. I need a doctor very very rarely.. an AI doctor never...
They've already segued into that; "doctors" simply look up the "standard of care" and prescribe accordingly.
"Batteries Not Included"...
We self-reproducing carbon-based-life forms may be replaced by computers, which specialize in how "To Serve Man", until the lights go out. https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/To_Serve_Man_(The_Twilight_Zone)#:~:text=%22To%20Serve%20Man%22%20is%20the,Bare.
It will be as efficient as a et turbine engine, until it does nothing at all. Efficiency and resiliency are usually at odds, because they allocate critical resources into the immediate present, or the uncertain future.

How did doctors not see this coming? Anyone can read a script and write an assigned script. Once doctors started doing what they were told it was game over.
When you see "health care" read "medical care." Nobody cares about your health. There's no money to be made.
And this is not really "medical care" either, it's "medicine care," the care part being "we care about your money." Imagine Amazon health telling you, for example, to STOP taking a medicine that's making you sick. Probably not going to happen. There's more money in selling a second, third, fourth medicine to address the signs and symptoms of the medication you are taking.
Personally, I might trust a computer if it recommends fasting as often as it recommends eating (food or medicine).But, truth being told, it's hard to find doctor that can manage that - even when presented with an obese patient. And if they do - they might be accused of negligence at best, or more likely, malpractice.

These sorts of vending machine online pharmacies already exist for sexual dysfunction meds (Roman, Lemonaid) and low-dose naltrexone and other speciality anti-aging meds (Ageless Rx). There is no appointment. Just a form that is "reviewed" by a clinician (that may be AI). Anyone who can figure out a way to set this up for Covid meds will earn a fortune.
