Novel wireless technologies, remote monitoring, individualized medicine, and exciting advances in imaging point toward a more active role for patients in the management of their cardiovascular care and to a change in the relationship between doctor and patient. As technological advances are fine-tuned and more widely adopted, how will patient care and the practice of medicine change?

Join Dr Eric Topol as he shares his predictions for the future with heartwire's managing editor, Shelley Wood, and explains why the stethoscope will be obsolete by 2016.
