Children's Hospital Boston doc developing handheld device to detect 'lazy eye' | MassDevice - Blog entry

Great post here today about some emerging technologies in the detection of ambylopia, or " lazy eye" in kids. Scroll down and read the comment of a renoun and influential pediatrician Hershel Lessin on his feelings about how payors may slow the adoption of new technologies in medicine. We'd love to hear other physicians chime in on this issue!

What if services in healthcare could be validated by the Market rather than third party payors? How might this affect the adoption of new technologies in your practice? I could EASILY fit this handheld device in the back of my car folks...

To Your Best Health,
