Over the weekend, I took delivery of a new Electric Vehicle (EV). Rather, the EV took delivery of me.

This past week, I wrote a piece exploring the reasons why big tech firms seem to suffer big setbacks repeatedly in healthcare. Counting the Haven Healthcare debacle, four big tech firms – Amazon, Google, Microsoft, and Apple – have had very public failures in the healthcare space over the past decade. Big tech is no stranger to failed experiments, and their core technology business seems to be doing well in the healthcare sector. However, something seems to go wrong when they cross the rubicon into core healthcare services.

This past week, healthcare tech markets were abuzz with the news of David Feinberg, Head of Google Health, departing to take up the CEO role at Cerner. A leaked internal memo, scooped by Business Insider, painted a gloomy picture inside Google. The Google Health division was disbanded, atomized, and the ashes scattered among different business units where they may remain buried forever. 

HIMSS2021 was unusual, to say the least. For the first time, I found myself presenting to an in-person audience through a Zoom interface, with an in-person moderator introducing the presenters. By all accounts, many of the HIMSS sessions were all-virtual or a hybrid of virtual and in-person sessions. A small number were pre-recorded sessions. As a speaker, I must add that the experience was smoother than I expected, with even a lively real-time Q&A.
