Emerson Foundation Interview
In 2018 the Emerson Foundation released an interview with Reed Paul Jobs, entitled “5 Questions with Reed Jobs“.
The interview covered questions relating to the differences in acquiring funding research for Cancer research as opposed to other types of organizational funding. Reed states that its a combination of philanthropy and investment. He goes on to define the success of the research as “diminishing the mortality of cancer.”
Touching on privacy questions, he concludes that peoples medical records, health information and medical data should be in their own control. Current systems are set up for ease of billing whereby he sees a future where “patients can move their records wherever they want and have control over them instantaneously.” This would not necessarily be in an open source or cloud network.
Looking forward, he sees the next 10 years as potentially a golden age for cancer research, with many developments on the horizon.
