Health Datapalooza is coming up quick at the end of April, so I sat down with Bruce Greenstein, CTO of HHS about why all of THCB’s health tech friends should attend. Plus, we get into what’s happening with the open data movement and how Bruce’s past-life at Microsoft is going to shape how he and HHS work with those consumer tech companies that are pushing harder and harder into healthcare.
Today Jessica DaMassa asks me about the microbiome, the Dev4Health conference & whether there are more female CEOs than there used to be. All in 2 minutes, plus a bit more with me defending myself from Bruce Greenstein’s wisecracks–Matthew Holt
THCB is thrilled to help launch a new interview series from Jessica DaMassa. It’s called WTF Health – ‘What’s the Future’ Health. Jessica is bringing you all some honest conversations about the future of health and how we love to hate WTF is wrong with it right now. Check out her first set of interviews from #HIMSS18 at www.wtf.health or stay tuned as she trots them out here.
I’m leading off with one of my favorites, Ted Tanner, Blockchain GOD and CTO of PokitDok. Here’s why you should watch Ted talk blockchain:
- Best Part: On what blockchain does NOT do… “it doesn’t make unicorns cough up $100 bills” (approx. 7 min)
- Why we need to look at blockchain as an ‘enablement platform’ that augments, not ‘rips and replaces’
- Predictions for the future of blockchain as tech giants move in
- How blockchain will be the next evolution of enterprise computing
Jessica DaMassa asks me every question about health & technology she can fit into 2 minutes. Topics include Facebook looking for hospital data, the EU starting a VC fund, JP Morgan CEO Jamie Dimon blowing up the hype about ABC & the ACA under more assault. Jessica called this a “painful episode” but I thought it was rather good! BTW THCB will be featuring Jessica’s new video series WTF Health very soon so get prepped!–Matthew Holt
Jessica DaMassa asks me about digital health funding, Walmart and PillPack, Blockchain and my sweater — not in that order, but all in less than 2 minutes. Bonus–Farzad Mostashari’s bow tie makes a twitter appearance! — Matthew Holt
For Episode 14, Jessica DaMassa asks me all the questions she can about health & technology in 2 minutes. On the docket today, Walmart & Humana, MyFitnessPal’s huge data breach, and Apple in health tech (again!)–Matthew Holt
Jessica DaMassa asks Matthew Holt all the questions she can about health & technology in 2 minutes. Today’s firing of VA Secretary Shulkin dominated the conversation, but there was time for a quick word on Oscar Health and what its recent huge funding round meant–Matthew Holt
Jessica DaMassa asks Matthew Holt his thoughts after the week that was HIMSS18. All in 2 minutes (well almost!). We hit on the speeches from all 3 head honchos at the new administration (Azar, Verma, Gottleib), Chrissy Farr’s article on interoperability and how very tall Magic Johnson is…
This edition of Health in 2 point 00 comes from HIMSS. This one was done just off the show floor, but don’t worry–tomorrow we’ll be back to doing it outside a bar! So here goes! Jessica DaMassa asks me as many questions as she can squeeze in about health & technology in just 2 minutes–Matthew Holt
For reasons a little lost in the fog we have committed to doing an episode of Health in 2 Point 00 every day at HIMSS. As I didn’t meet my co-host Jessica DaMassa till late it was more like “Health in 22.00”. But we still covered a few topics (Google Cloud, Eric Schmidt, Pilots) from our none too private studio in the corridor at the Venetian!–Matthew Holt
