We saw lots of digital health controversy last week. Here’s a recap:

  1. The Chan/Zuck camp threw down $3B to 'cure all diseases'—but some scientists criticized their move.
  2. Politico called out Silicon Valley for ‘blowing its chance to ride the silver tsunami’, while others applauded companies already making waves in senior care.
  3. Research published in JAMA claims wearables don't work; while MobiHealthNews pointed out major flaws in the outdated study. Meanwhile, grim rumors circled about Jawbone.
