Sending hundreds of thousands of wrongly diagnosed people to the doctor scares me

So this does strike me as a very industry-centric response. Unless there is a risk to the patient which outweighs the potential benefit via early identification then surely it’s a net win? As a patient, I shouldn't have to care about how this will impact the industry, it should adapt to fit our needs.

I’ve never liked the way that medical data guarded and controlled by a closed group. I don’t claim to be a car mechanic, but I’m able to get data on the state of my car. Same with my house, with my finances. Devices like the apple watch are bringing early identification to people, together with more access to data — and IMO thats never a bad thing.
