Health care loses a unicorn

The Beltway got a new top dog of digital health last week, while in the heart of West Coast techlandia, Stanford Medicine struck a deal with Google to utilize its genomic cloud computing service for routine patient care. Following Google’s setbacks with its non-invasive glucose sensor, rumors about a glucometer-embedded device from Apple resurfaced yet again last week. 

Healthcare lost a unicorn this weekend. We're remembering the brilliant, humorous, fiercely passionate patient advocate Jess Jacobs, whose impact on health care will be felt long after her death. Honor her legacy by continuing your hard work to fix our screwed up healthcare system
