What you should know about healthcare’s new head honcho
August 17, 2015
We thought we’d scoop some noodles out of Alphabet’s soup and spell out what they mean for digital health. A is for, well, Alphabet (the new head honcho of the Googleverse)—the conglomerate wasted no time re-committing to revolutionize healthcare. B is for Benefitter, and C is for congrats, because this Rock Health portfolio company just got acquired!
E is for EHR, as meaningful use among providers fell 12% in 2014. K is for Kim Kardashian, whose social media promos got her in trouble with the FDA. Z is for zooming on over and giving these awesome SXSW digital health panels your vote!
