Paul Sonnier Announcement to 18,000+ member Digital Health Group

 

Dear Digital Health group members,

(1) New Friend of the Digital Health Group: Popper and Company
(2) Noteworthy Solutions & Funding
(3) DNA as Consumer Product – VIDEO
(4) What Happens When You Wear Your Computer? – VIDEO
(5) Health Data: UK vs. US

 
(1) POPPER AND COMPANY – NEWEST FRIEND OF THE DIGITAL HEALTH GROUP!

To say Popper and Co is a “new” friend doesn’t do justice to the vision of the firm’s founders—Caroline Popper, MD, MPH and Ken Walz—who for the past year-and-a-half have made it possible for me to maintain the continuity and quality of services I’m providing to the digital health ecosystem. I’m also incredibly fortunate to work with my other amazing team members Shane Climie, PhD, Patti Doherty, RN, and Stephanie Kreml, MD.
You can see the Popper logo—along with Scanadu’s—featured on my global event list: http://www.wirelesshealthstrategies.com/events.html

(2) NOTEWORTHY

Placebo Effect App
In some cases of depression and anxiety, a placebo can be up to 90% as effective as medication. With this—and other conditions plus general wellness/happiness—in mind, founder Daniel Jacobs decided to, effectively, digitize the sugar pill. http://bit.ly/HPPlaceboEffect

(5) STUDY IN CONTRASTS: HEALTH DATA IN THE US AND UK

Alex Howard reports on comments by the UK’s Secretary of State for Health, Jeremy Hunt, on his plans for “extending electronic health records to 50 million people, sequencing the genomes of 100,000 people, and developing telemedicine capabilities for 3 million patients”. http://bit.ly/UK-Health-HDPalooza
Discussion: http://lnkd.in/iXFYbE
Share on Twitter: http://bit.ly/UK-NHS-Interview

Jonathan Bush, CEO at athenahealth, wrote this cutting commentary pointing out that, among other things, the amount of health cost data released by the HHS so far is “nearly nothing”. http://bit.ly/BushPalooza
