Autism Spectrum Disorder as a Model for Thinking Differently About Patients With Complex Disease.

Abstract

The rising prevalence of chronic diseases, complex diseases, unknown etiologies, and comorbidities have made efforts to practice curative medicine ever-more difficult to achieve. Autism spectrum disorder illustrates this challenge well as procedures, protocols, and algorithms that were successful in the past are no longer effective. The time has come for our health care system to fundamentally rethink how we assess and care for patients. In this editorial, we present a powerful, patient-centered, data-driven approach.
