On Tuesday, October 25, 2016 at 1:00 PM ET (10:00 AM PT) I’ll be hosting a live video interview with Denise Basow, MD, President and CEO of Clinical Effectiveness at Wolters Kluwer Health. We’ll be discussing how we can make sure that doctors and patients are getting the right information at the right place at the right time. This is an extremely big challenge, but this discussion should be particularly interesting thanks to Wolters Kluwer’s recent acquisition of Emmi.

The great part is that you can join my conversation live and even add your own comments to the discussion or ask your own questions. All you need to do to watch live is visit this blog post on Tuesday, October 25, 2016 at 1:00 PM ET (10:00 AM PT) and watch the video embed at the bottom of this post or you can watch on YouTube directly. The conversation will be recorded as well and available on this post after the interview.

John Doerr’s Excitement for Digital Health

John Doerr, a venture capitalist in many of the most famous tech companies, was onstage at the TechCrunch Disrupt conference where he was asked which of his latest investments he was most excited in. He replied that his most exciting investment was still in stealth mode, but that it was a healthcare startup and that “They aim to do for healthcare what Google did for health.”

Here’s the video of John Doerr talking about this investment and investing in healthcare:

I always love when billionaires like John Doerr are spending some of their time focused on healthcare. Certainly many of them have underestimated the complexity of healthcare and the entrenched system. Certainly many of them have made some bad investments. However, I think the more entrepreneurs and investors that focus on improving healthcare the better. So, I’m pleased he’s spending some time and energy with healthcare.

As for this company in stealth mode, I’m pretty sure Wolters Kluwer might argue that they’ve been doing that with health information for a long time. It will be interesting to see what a new startup tries to offer when it comes to making the world’s health knowledge available in a consumable format.
