I know I seem like an industry pundit (I wish it were true), but I just can’t believe what I read on a daily basis, and how off base people are. Fox News published an article entitled “Will doctors be replaced by robots under Obamacare?” The piece is about Sedasys, an automated anesthesiology system. The author, Dr. Manny Alvarez should know better. Obamacare will change things, but let’s be realistic. Besides, we wouldn’t want to shock the robots. I tweeted Dr. Manning the following in response:
@drmannyonFOX Where does it say that Sedasys will ‘replace’ anesthesiologists? Or is this your inference?
