RESEARCH

Beyond the research Dr. Jones has conducted to launch many new business ventures, in 2001 he presented his doctoral dissertation findings from his study of the monetary effect of physician's adopting the internet. Internet users indicated they would switch doctors from ones that don’t use it in their practice to those that do resulting in a projected transfer of $3 billion in primary care dollars (1999USD). With blockchain, digital health, IoT, and provider risk-taking through ACA, HITECH, and HHS incentives, Dr. Jones predicts the adoption should accelerate from 40% 2017 to 90% by 2020.
