What does the future of health care look like? Will you screen yourself for disease with your smartphone? Never wait for a doctor? Wear a hospital gown that preserves your modesty?

Dean Johnston shares how the new Dell Medical School is working to enable a vital, inclusive health ecosystem that’s focused on innovative training for the next generation of physicians and redesigning health care delivery so that it’s focused on value and better health outcomes.
