Q1 2022 – The Entrepreneurial Digital Health Financing Boom Chills

By Phil Taylor

***

***

US digital health company investment financing experienced a dip in Q1 of 2022, dropping to $6 billion from the $6.7 billion invested in Q1 2021. In addition, the average size of each investment deal dropped from $46 million last year to just shy of $33 million. These declines come after a boom in investments in recent years. The Rock Health Digital health securities index also reflected this year’s trend, including special purpose acquisition company (SPAC) listings.

According to Phil Taylor of PharmaPhorum, “SPACs have been a popular route to public listing for digital health as well as many other sectors, but the deals have underperformed, with steep declines in share prices after they closed that has “exerted downwards pressure” on the Rock Health Digital Health Index (RHDHI).”

What is a CONTENT DELIVERY NETWORK, Doctor?

CDNs and What They Mean to Physicians

BY J.M.

[Anonymous IT Expert]

DOCTOR – Do you like the internet? Do you use EMRs/EHRs? Do you like fast internet? Of course you do.

But, without a strong infrastructure of content delivery networks (CDNs), website loading times would be too slow to stream tele-health/tele-medicine visits or tela-radiology services; not to mention Netflix, or argue with Reddit strangers or your patients; etc.

CDNs are geographically distributed networks of servers that handle processing and speed up internet delivery. In practice, CDNs make website content like HTML pages, JavaScript files, style-sheets, images, and videos load faster. They also reduce bandwidth costs, handle more traffic, and provide a little security protection. 

  • CDNs don’t actually host web content, but instead keep cached versions of it at the ready in edge servers.

How CDN Works? How to Find the Cheapest CDN Provider?

***

Fastly is one of a number of significant CDN providers that help form the infrastructure of the internet. And while the outage shows the breadth of its reach, it’s far from the biggest player—Akami, Cloudflare, and Amazon CloudFront take up 75% of revenue in CDN space, per Intricately.

But Fastly, one of the world’s largest cloud computing companies itself, just had an outage that shut down its CDN service, affecting major websites including the New York Times, HBO Max, and the British government’s homepage.

Recent advances in biomedical and health sciences—from immunotherapy to treat cancer, to the highly effective COVID-19 vaccines—demonstrate the strengths and successes of the U.S. biomedical enterprise. Such advances present an opportunity to revolutionize how to prevent, treat, and even cure a range of diseases including cancer, infectious diseases, Alzheimer’s disease, and many others that together affect a significant number of Americans.

To improve the U.S. government’s capabilities to speed research that can improve the health of all Americans, President Biden is proposing the establishment of the Advanced Research Projects Agency for Health (ARPA-H). Included in the President’s FY2022 budget as a component of the National Institutes of Health (NIH) with a requested funding level of $6.5B available for three years, ARPA-H will be tasked with building high-risk, high-reward capabilities (or platforms) to drive biomedical breakthroughs—ranging from molecular to societal—that would provide transformative solutions for all patients.

HOW THE METAVERSE COULD (OR COULD NOT) TRANSFORM HEALTHCARE


If you’ve browsed the internet in the last couple of months, the term ‘metaverse’ is likely to have been thrown at you at least once. Facebook rebranded itself after the concept and other companies are adopting the metaverse with their own spin; betting heavily that it will be the next iteration of the internet where we will work and play alike.

It was time to dive into what the metaverse could mean to delivering healthcare.

NFTs IN HEALTHCARE: HOW PATIENTS COULD MONETISE THEIR HEALTH DATA


Personal health sensors and apps equip patients with personalised data so that they can become more proactive in managing their health. But what is still mostly the norm is that these sensitive data are governed by the companies providing these services; and they often profit out of it, oblivious to patients.

Guide to Telehealth

Guide to Telehealth – Then, Now, Tomorrow?
By Rebecca Chi

Healthcare providers have employed various forms of telehealth since long before the start of the coronavirus pandemic. Telehealth delivers knowledge and expertise to people and places that need it. A movement that largely began as a way to improve access to healthcare in rural communities saw explosive growth in 2020. Today, telehealth is in wide use and here to stay.

***

Advancing Value-Based Care Through Telehealth

What is telehealth?
The US Health Resources and Services Administration defines telehealth as any electronic information and telecommunications technology that is used to support and promote long-distance clinical healthcare, patient and professional health-related education, public health and health administration. Telehealth technologies benefit providers, healthcare organizations and patients.

The importance of telehealth
The key to maintaining population health and lowering expenditures is delivering timely access to high-quality care.

The US is struggling to improve the quality of healthcare and make the needed shift to value-based models. Innovative telehealth solutions that addressed our country’s worsening healthcare access problem reached the point of widespread adoption in 2020, when the pandemic pushed the healthcare system to its limits.

Telehealth increases convenience of care and access while decreasing costs and maximizing physician time. Providers, payers and employers are increasingly adopting various and connected types of telehealth solutions to improve healthcare operations and patient outcomes. Patients embrace the convenience, safety, accessibility and flexibility of telehealth options.

ORACLE Buys CERNER Electronic Medical Records

By Staff Reporters

***

Perks of Using EMR Systems on Locum Assignments | Medicus Healthcare  Solutions

***

According to reporter Neal Freyman, Tech giant Oracle said it’s paying $28.3 billion to buy electronic medical records company Cerner, because anything that makes paperwork less excruciating seems like a savvy business play.

Oracle is known for being aggressive with acquisitions (it even rallied a group to try and buy TikTok last year), but Cerner is Oracle’s biggest purchase in its history. The deal is further evidence that health care is “on par with banking in terms of the importance to our future,” as cofounder Larry Ellison told analysts earlier this month.

  • In Cerner, Oracle will get the Klay Thompson of the electronic medical records market—a very influential player, but in second place behind Epic, which owns a 31% market share.

Bottom line: Big tech companies see a golden opportunity in bringing the health care industry to the cloud, given its size (health care spending accounts for almost 20% of US GDP), and its old-school record-keeping process. A Mayo Clinic study cited by Oracle showed that doctors and nurses spend an average of 1–2 hours on desk work for every hour they take to see patients.

Dodging an Embarrassing Question about Electronic Dental Records

Dental Care Alliance Data Breach Impacts More Than 1 Million Patients

NEWS FLASH!

Sarasota, FL-based Dental Care Alliance, LLC, a dental support organization with more than 320 affiliated dental practices across 20 states, has been hacked and the protected health information of more than a million individuals has potentially been compromised. The breach occurred on September 18, 2020, was detected on October 11, and was contained on October 13.”

Steve Alder

[HIPAA Journal – December 10, 2020]

LINK: https://www.hipaajournal.com/dental-care-alliance-data-breach-impacts-more-than-1-million-patients/

Currently I am in conversation on LinkedIn with a Chief Information Officer for an IT firm. He assures me that the cloud is more secure than paper dental records stored in heavy and loud metal filing cabinets, but cannot say why.

Meanwhile, I have never heard of a million paper dental records being stolen in one heist. Wouldn’t that require a truck or two? What’s more, once the thieves escape to their hideout, someone will have to enter the data onto computers – while struggling to interpret bad handwriting.

PODCAST: Lessons for [physician] Investors: The Trial of Theranos Founder ELIZABETH HOLMES

By Bertalan Meskó, MD PhD

Wofür R&D Jahre benötigt, braucht künstliche Intelligenz wenige Minuten“

Elizabeth Holmes has no idea how much damage she has done with Theranos. As I often wrote, for digital technologies to gain ground and become part of our everyday lives, we need not only technological solutions but a cultural paradigm shift. Holmes rolled a massive rock in front of it.

Similarly, Facebook’s data privacy practices do not increase people’s confidence in the company’s products. All the scandals that have surrounded the social network could backfire when Facebook wants to step into healthcare – and this is exactly what we wrote about in our latest article, Is There A Place For Facebook In Healthcare? In it, we looked at what Facebook currently does in medicine and evaluated whether those are viable ways to follow in the future.

DICTIONARY: Health Information Technology and Security

Review

This is a handy, word-packed reference book with health information technology terminology of the past, present, and future. The paperback book is small and compact in size but amazingly full of words, abbreviations, and even names of leaders in the health information technology industry. While any book like this will require updating on a periodic basis, many of the terms will remain relevant for a good period of time. I found the dictionary very useful and recommend it as a good addition to the reference shelf in the office or library.

“”There is a myth that all stakeholders in the healthcare space understand the meaning of basic information technology jargon. In truth, the vernacular of contemporary medical information systems is unique, and often misused or misunderstood? Moreover, an emerging national Heath Information Technology (HIT) architecture; in the guise of terms, definitions, acronyms, abbreviations and standards; often puts the non-expert medical, nursing, public policy administrator or paraprofessional in a position of maximum uncertainty and minimum productivity ?The Dictionary of Health Information Technology and Security will therefore help define, clarify and explain…You will refer to it daily.””

Whither the “Dictionary of Health Information Technology and Security?”

DHITS

A simple query that demands a cogent answer!

There is a myth that all stakeholders in the healthcare space understand the meaning of basic information technology jargon. In truth, the vernacular of contemporary medical information systems is unique, and often misused or misunderstood. It is sometimes altogether confounding.

Terms such as, “RSS”, “eHRs”, “DRAM”, “ROM”, “USB”, “PDA”, “NPI”, “CCHIT”, and “DNS” are common acronyms, but is their meaning AND functionality truly understood?

The 10 Worst Technologies of the 21st Century?

 MIT Technology Review

****

 MIT Technology Review

The latest issue, MIT Technology Review revealed 10 breakthrough technologies, chosen by Bill Gates, that he thinks will change the world for the better. We thought it only fair (and fun) to come up with a corresponding list of 10 “bad” technologies.

A hard choice: What makes them bad? Well, it could be because they fail to achieve good aims, or succeed in wicked ones. They could be harmful, flawed, or ahead of their time.

Sad: The Segway turned out to be an expensive scooter that makes you look silly. Google Glass, on the other hand, makes the list as a decent technology that just lacked decent enough uses when it launched.

Bad: Electronic voting made the cut for making elections more vulnerable. The CRISPR babies born in November 2018 are on there too, because indiscriminate uses of the technology should worry us. Data trafficking, where our data is shared and used without our control, is undermining freedom and democracy—it had to be one there.

Mad: Of course, some inventions have no redeeming features whatsoever. May we present: selfie sticks.

“When Patients Fear EHR – When patients believe paper medical records are safer and more private than electronic ones, their health can suffer.

Magnified by misinformation and political distortion of facts, an unnecessary fear has taken root in the minds of many consumers — often with serious consequences.”
