Sleep. According to a 2016 study by the CDC, one out of three Americans isn’t getting enough of it. And maybe the sleep tracker on your Fitbit, Apple Watch, or other favorite wearable is suggesting that you’re one of those three. But as pretty as those sleep tracker reports are, they can’t give you a true diagnostic assessment of your sleep – something that can be used by your doctor for diagnosis to help you sleep better. Historically, if you wanted a comprehensive sleep study done, you’d go to a sleep lab. Cerebra.health is poised to change all of that.

Those who count Las Vegas, Austin, and Orlando as premiere health tech conference destinations will want to add London to the list – pronto!

So get your passport, catch a plane, and direct your gaze to clouds – after all, that’s where a GIANT and his mythical beanstalks are to be found.
We recently asked Alexa if she could code a few medical charts for us. Her reply? “Sorry I don’t know that.” We expected this. After all, the U.S. healthcare industry spends billions of dollars on 250,000 medical coders every year to do the job. This way of doing business might be error-prone, inefficient, and bound by constantly changing regulations, but hey, IT IS a solution. But you know what else is a solution? Autonomous medical coding. Tech company Nym.health just closed with $6 million in fresh financing and will implement their brand of autonomous medical coding right here in the […]

Together.Health is an organization that uses the power of community to accelerate change in healthcare. When the group isn’t hosting fireside chats and panels at some of the world’s biggest healthcare conferences, they’re busy working behind the scenes to develop standards, identify resources, and champion solutions that promise to move the entire industry forward. Recently the group rebranded from the “Digital Health Collaborative” to Together.Health. We sat down to interview some of the team members to express our admiration for their shiny new .health domain and to get the lowdown on what they’re up to. Here’s the interview:
Two years ago at SXSW, we hadn’t even launched yet, but innovators were already hustling and launching projects on .health domain names through our pre-launch partnership program – including ImpactPediatric.health and Energizing.health. This year, we stopped in and checked up to see “where are they now”… Here’s our recap of SXSWHealth 2019!
Last month, we attended the 7th Annual StartUp Health Festival in San Francisco, where we met with innovators from startups and established companies that are transforming the world of healthcare. One of those startups was Adjuvant.Health. Allied Physicians Group, one of the largest independent medical partnerships in New York, created Adjuvant.Health to solve a prevalent problem in the world of pediatrics.
